REST webinar

Integrate Cloud Services with the REST/JSON Client

As part of the free Developer Skill Sprint on REST & JSON here are my slides and sample source code. Appmethod, RAD Studio, Delphi & C++Builder XE6 ship with the Desktop sample RESTDemos sample which includes examples for:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google Tasks
  • Foursquare
  • Dropbox
  • Plus Some others

That includes both OAuth1 and OAuth2 usage. My Dropbox demo is a mobile app written in both C++ and Object Pascal. It uses OAuth2 and the mobile TWebBrowser to perform the authentication. You can view and download the slides as well. Useful links:

So upgrade to XE6 or download the trial today.

Here is the video for the Skill Sprint:

Can you tell me in the dropbox video I see that you use the Twebbrowser, but in this companent the keypad in Android can not input text, how do you do it in the video?

Can you tell me a the sollution?

I am using XE6. Are you using XE6 or XE5? That feature wasn’t supported in XE5. If you watch the video from XE5 where they build the client on the desktop they explain that the browser didn’t work on Android for data entry.

I have just downloaded the embarcadero RAD studio demo XE6 and compiled the demo. But still the same thing , I can not input text in to the forms of any website throught the TWebBrowser.

I do not understand what is going on.

The latest Appmethod is equivalent to XE6 for mobile development. So the keypad is displayed when you tap in a text box, but you are unable to type? What keyboard are you using? What version of Android?

You might experiment with a different device perhaps. I tested it on multiple devices and it works fine. They are all 4.4.2 KitKat though unfortunately. I’ll keep looking for a Jelly Bean one to test it on.
