PostgresDAC meets Lazarus

First of all, Lazarus is the class libraries for Free Pascal that emulate Delphi. Free Pascal is a GPL’ed compiler that runs on Linux, Win32, OS/2, 68K and more.

I knew it before and frankly speaking always thought that Lazarus is some kind of not a serious thing. However several days ago I found the first issue of Blaise Pascal Magazine in Russian with article of Zeljan about it. “You never know till you try”, I thought, and decided to give Lazarus a chance.

Since I’m a developer of PostgresDAC component suite my first thought was to use it under Lazarus. Well, I spent two days working and suddenly… Now I’m able to create “Hello world!” bagatelle. Anyway “that’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”. 🙂 I think soon we will add official support for Lazarus in PostgresDAC.
