RAD Server

The Perfect Back-end for Delphi and C++Builder Apps



RAD Server is a turn-key application foundation for rapidly building and deploying services based applications. RAD Server provides automated Delphi and C++ REST/JSON API publishing and management, Enterprise database integration middleware, IoT Edgeware and an array of application services such as User Directory and Authentication services, Push Notifications, Indoor/Outdoor Geolocation and JSON data storage. RAD Server enables developers to quickly build new application back-ends or migrate existing Delphi or C++ client/server business logic to a modern services based architecture that is open, stateless, secure and scalable. RAD Server is easy to develop, deploy and operate making it ideally suited for ISVs and OEMs building re-deployable solutions.

Finally a back-end for multi-tier applications as easy as Delphi

Before RAD Server, developers custom built back-end Delphi and C++Builder application servers using server toolkits like DataSnap which provided a few basic server building blocks for multi-tier, but left the vast majority of the development to the developer. Enter RAD Server. With RAD Server, developers can now simply load Delphi and C++ business logic methods into RAD Server, add some users, and go. REST/JSON end-points are auto-created and managed. Access control is handled. Data storage is built-in or you can easily connect to any popular Enterprise RDBMS or cloud service. Track and respond to user location. Push notifications to users. Integrated smart IoT devices into your solution. And deploy on site or in the cloud. Multi-tier has never been this simple, turn-key, flexible, and powerful.


Easy rest API end-point creation, publishing and management

RAD Server makes it fast and easy to build flexible back-end servers for your multi-tier application solution. Developers simply load Delphi and C++ business logic into the server, and managed REST/JSON API end-points are generated. Developers or admins can easily configure API level access control to user groups, and measure and analyze application usage at the API, user, or service level. Since your Delphi and C++ APIs are published as heterogeneous REST/JSON end-points, RAD Server easily supports virtually any client type from VCL and FMX Desktop, Mobile and Wearable clients to popular JavaScript Web Frameworks. RAD Server easy to build and deploy robust heterogeneous multi-tier solutions.

High performance integration with data, cloud and smart device

RAD Studio includes high performance integrations that make it easy to connect Enterprise Data, Cloud Services and Smart IoT devices into your multi-tier application. RAD Studio’s Enterprise DACs enable fast pooled connections to Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, DB2, Sybase, and more. Client connection pooling also eliminates complex and heavy weight RDBMS client drivers and configurations. Clients applications connect to RAD Server via lightweight REST for data access, application services, and application API calls. RAD Server includes the new IoT ThingConnect and ThingPoint IoT Edgeware making it easy to connect a wide array of wireless smart devices and sensors into your application solution, even in remote and difficult to access locations.

Key built-in core services to power your application

RAD Server includes a powerful set of built-in core servers to power your application back-end eliminating the need to build the key foundational components of your server application. Core services like User directory services, authentication, and access control, push notifications, JSON data-storage, and user proximity and indoor/outdoor user location tracking and fencing.
