Since InterBase XE, InterBase includes 256bit AES strength encryption that offers full database, table or column data encryption. This assists data controllers conform with data protection laws around at-rest data by providing separated encryption / db access to the database and ensuring the database file is encrypted wherever it resides. The separation of the encryption also enables developers to just develop the application rather than worry about the data visible from a specific user login.
At the end of 2002, Borland released InterBase version 7, featuring support for SMP, enhanced support for monitoring and control of the server by administrators, and more. Borland released InterBase 7.1 in June 2003, 7.5 in December 2004, and 7.5.1 on June 1, 2005.
In September 2008, Embarcadero announced the availability of InterBase 2009. Its new features include full database encryption, selective column-level data encryption and over-the-wire encryption offering secure TCP/IP communication via Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
In September 2010, Embarcadero announced the availability of InterBase XE. Its new features include a 64 bit client and server, improved security, improved scalability, support for dynamic SQL in stored procedures, and optimized performance of large objects with stream methods.
In Nov 2019, Embarcadero released InterBase 2020, followed by Update 1 release in May 2020. The InterBase 2020 release adds a number of new features, including tablespaces support for InterBase, allowing for better performance on servers with multiple data storage options. See further at -history
To do that you will need 2 computers with the new server and the old one. If you haven't used any new features of server X (version of InterBase or Firebird), so you may return to X-1 following these steps:
The connection rejected by remote interface means that the client and server could not agree on a protocol version while attempting to connect. Even though Firebird and Interbase have a shared history, they have diverged a lot over the past 20 years. The FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient ADO.net provider does not support Interbase1. It only supports Firebird. So you cannot use it to connect to Interbase XE7.
IBSurgeon has released the complete trial kit for Firebird encryption, which includes fully functional time-limited AES256 encryption plugin and demo application (in Delphi) to demonstrate how to connect to the encrypted database.
I have created a 32Bit RAD Server application and I wanted to host it in my local IIS Server. I followed the steps mentioned in here But when I try to call a webservice say :8080/emsserver/EMSServer.dll/version I get the following error :
Is there again another instance of interbase has to be installed ? I had installed the interbase along with the RAD Studio 10.2 set up. The error message also suggests to configure emsserver.ini. What configuration change does it require ?
Procedurally, depending on your hosting environment, you will add your RAD Server deployment license to InterBase via its License Manager on Windows or via the command line on Linux: /opt/interbase/bin/LicenseManagerLauncher -i Console as discussed here. This presumes you have previously installed InterBase centrally to serve Identity and Access Management (IAM) purposes as well as to record resource data analytics by endpoint (built-in features of RAD Server's RESTful web application framework).
By default, the RAD Server Database is defined within the InterBase file "emsserver.ib" which serves to persist the devices, users, groups and data analytics for all connected RAD Server instances. In turn, the connection parameters required by each RAD Server instance are stored under the [Data] section of the associated EMSSERVER.INI configuration file as detailed hereunder:
Database: The database file (or its alias) served by the InterBase-powered InstanceName pointed to above. On the Windows OS, the default setting for Database is: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\EMS\emsserver.ib. On Linux, the default setting is: /usr/lib/ems/emsserver.ib
In addition, the server name must be generated correctly, since, if we have no client, we have no tnsnames.ora file with the server list as well. Therefore, to establish connection from Android, we need to know the server Host and Port, as well as its SID or Service Name.
Grey Matter and Embarcadero are delighted to invite you to this full-day developer event. This is the first UK Delphi-focused in-person developer event we have hosted since 2019. It will be great to get together to catch up and network.
Usertility is the simple tool in use for VCL and FireMonkey allowing developers to trace and analyze use of their applications. Usertility analyzes such indicators as the number of users, platforms, the number of application launches with what elements of the interface the user interacts. The tool includes server service with the graphical interface for data analysis. Developers can embed analytics in the application without additional coding, just adding the Usertility component to the application. Embarcadero Will develop in the future possibilities of these tools to transfer functionality to mobile platforms Android, iOS and others.
Enterprise Mobility Services (EMS) is the ready-made solution forming a basis for the interacting, distributed applications which provides simple deployment of the software server of the interface layer providing a hosting and the publication of specialized API and interfaces of data access. EMS is founded on open and standard technologies, including calls of REST HTTP and formats of data of JSON. It provides drivers of access to the main DB and also embedded in applications or the server SQL DBMS supporting enciphering. Providing authentication and management of users, providing analytics on work of users and on API calls, EMS serves as an instrument for ensuring of secure access to corporate databases from mobile and desktop applications.
RAD Studio XE4 is a set of development tools intended for fast creation of full native applications for the PC, tablets and smartphones. The product RAD Studio XE4 is created by developers for developers and allows to use the uniform code within one command and to follow the uniform project diagram, without sacrificing performance.
Development tools of full native applications allow to refuse application of scripts and virtual machines, to reach the maximum capacity and security and also to completely realize the potential of devices, providing the maximum convenience of work of users.
Main opportunities of RAD Studio XE4: complete infrastructure of creating applications for iOS, Windows and Mac OS X (support of Android will be implemented in the nearest future); the full-function visual designer of user interfaces for iOS, Mac and Windows supporting different types of devices, permissions and orientations of the screen; controls in IOS style and the built-in services: motion sensors and cameras and also services of geographical positioning, link exchange and notification; support of the local SQLite, IBLite and InterBase Embedded ToGo databases; built-in corporate multilink assets of connection to services SOAP, REST, web services Amazon Oracle Sybase IBM DB2 InterBase MySQL Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Azure and to other systems.

Delphi includes an integrated IDE. The Delphi products all ship with a Visual Component Library (VCL), including most of its source code. Third-party components (sometimes with full source code) and tools to enhance the IDE or for other Delphi related development tasks are available, some free of charge. The IDE includes a GUI for localization and translation of created programs that may be deployed to a translator; there are also third-party tools with more features for this purpose. The VCL framework maintains a high level of source compatibility between versions, which simplifies updating existing source code to a newer Delphi version. Third-party libraries may need updates from the vendor but, if source code is supplied, recompilation with the newer version may be sufficient. The VCL was an early adopter of dependency injection or inversion of control; it uses a-"re-usable" component model, extensible by the developer. With class helpers new functionality can be introduced to core RTL and VCL classes without changing the original source code of the RTL or VCL.
The compiler is optimizing and single pass. It can optionally compile to a single executable which does not require DLLs. Delphi can also generate standard DLLs, ActiveX DLLs, COM automation servers and Windows services.
Although each new release of Delphi attempts to keep as much backwards compatibility as possible to allow existing code reuse, new features, new libraries, and improvements sometimes make newer releases less than 100% backwards compatible. For example, the design of the standard class libraries (VCL/RTL) had become somewhat dated and restrictive; Embarcadero released in 2011 as part of Delphi XE2 a new compiler and cross-platform VCL replacement called FireMonkey, based on Direct3D and OpenGL, which runs on other platforms in addition to Windows, supporting their features, but is not fully backwards-compatible with VCL applications. FireMonkey applications do however allow easy sharing of non visual code units with VCL applications, enabling a lot of code to be ported easily between the platforms.
Delphi 2009 (Delphi 12, code named Tiburón), added many new features such as completely reworking the VCL and RTL for full Unicode support, and added generics and anonymous methods for Win32 native development. Support for .NET development was dropped from the mainstream Delphi IDE starting with this version, and was catered for by the new Delphi Prism 2009 (Version 1.0). 2b1af7f3a8
