My life in the Developers World

Playing with iPad SDK

Apple have published the new SDK including the iPad Simulator and the new API on the developer website.

It is in Beta but it works wonderful. So the first work in the morning was to test how it is. Yes it is based an the same SDK as the iPhone and there are no changes in developing software. My first Project was a small App with a WebView and a Picker to select some different WebSites.

Creating a new Project there is a new selector for iPhone or iPad

i have deleted the pictures, cause i have to check the BETA NDA.

But i leave the text.

yes there is the simulator in the sdk

now lets start the Interface Builder to add some Components on it and to bind on the IBOutlets and IBActions

adding some code and yes it runs !!!!!

that’s what i like. No changes in behavior of developing. It is the same like the iPhone Development before. So it is easy to write new iPad Applications. Also to use existing Classes and Code from iPhone Applications. Thats perfect!!!!

Btw we expand our iPhone Developer Day in Munich and Hamburg also with iPad stuff. Now we can talk about it and the Agenda will be change in a short time.

Have fun and

Windows Development on Mac and more…

Today during normal working Olaf Monien and I have finished some intresting tests and we like to share this to community. And it is interesting, while Embarcadero is working on a Delphi Solution compiling to the MacOSX also (Roadmap Delphi).

During running on one mac VMWare Fusion 3 and on the other Parallels 5 with Windows 7 and SQL Server Standard we found extreme differences on result time.

To get exact result i installed on my mac book 17″ 8 GB Ram VMWare and Parallels a brand new Windows 7 32bit. both get 3GB Ram. Same Databases from a backup was restored in this new image (SQL Server Standard).

Result time on a big query over 2 Databases in VMWare was 15 seconds and in Parallels 5 seconds, all with fetching all records.

We have no idea why but the decision for me is done.

Also Delphi in Win32 and Delphi Prism (Visual Studio IDE) is a little bit quicker in Parallels as in Fusion.

What’s your result?



btw: think delphi and mac

btw nr2: don’t ask why we do this, answer is NDA
