First look at FireDAC – Mathias Burbach

Recently Embarcadero released the component-suite FireDAC, which allows the developer to talk to different databases via the same components& methods. Pretty much like dbExpress.

Synopsis for RPC – Paul Jervois

A short discussion on the JSON RPC 2.0 specification, which allows remote procedure calls (RPC) using the JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) syntax.
