Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code
Pierre Semaan
Advanced Products Engineering Manager
Citrix Systems Inc

"Refactoring is a technique to restructure code in a disciplined way. For a long time it was a piece of programmer lore, done with varying degrees of discipline by experienced developers, but not passed on in a coherent way" - Martin Fowler. The session aims to give attendees a practical overview of refactoring, so that they can go back and look at code with a different eye

Automated Unit Testing in Delphi
Malcolm Groves
Madrigal Technologies

Automated Unit Testing can be a powerful addition to your toolkit when used correctly, or a nightmare when abused. This session will help you avoid the nightmare and get the benefits. It will cover how to do Automated Unit Testing effectively with Delphi using DUnit, an Open Source framework.

Development of Visual Delphi Components with Internet Access
Roger Connell
Innova Solutions

Any Internet development seems to require threads to operate correctly. Components within Delphi are a useful way of achieving code reuse. The paper looks at the process we went through to emulate the VCL components TDirectoryListBox and TFileListBox as WEB enabled components by encapsulating an Indy FTP Client in a separate thread. We look at the development decisions, problems encountered and solutions implemented.

Coffee Break
 

2:30-4:30

Inside INDY SOAP
Grahame Grieve, National Development Manager, Kestral Computing P/L
Dave Nottage, Chief Technical Officer, Pure Software Technology P/L

IndySOAP is a library that provides a Web Services implementation and is a part of the Open Source Indy Library. Grahame and Dave are both members of the Indy pit crew and will review the Indy Soap project, describing the project rationale and goals, then moving on to cover items such as creating a web service with Indy SOAP, registering the interfaces and deployment.
