Rapidly build and deploy services-based applications! RAD Server supports REST with JSON (or XML) parameter passing and return results. Publish APIs, manage connected users and devices, capture analytics about the use and users of applications, and connect to local and enterprise databases using FireDAC components. RAD Server also supports user authentication, push notifications, geolocation, and data storage.
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.
RAD Server provides multiple integrations out of the box with connectivity to external servers, applications, databases, smart devices, cloud services, and other platforms. Easily to connect Enterprise Data, Cloud Services and Smart IoT devices.
Core services like User Directory services, authentication, access control, push notifications, JSON data storage, and user location tracking, and beacon fencing provide the key foundational components of your server application.
Get RAD Server with RAD Studio, Delphi, and C++Builder
You can set up group and user level access, with authentication, to all application APIs and control who has access to your application’s API functionality.
