Cloud Computing with DataSnap
Go Up to Developing DataSnap Applications
With RAD Studio XE2, the API unit DSAzure was redesigned into AzureAPI and the old DSAzure API (and visual components) has been deprecated. The old Azure API is still shipped and supported with XE2, but you are encouraged to use the new API. AzureAPI lets you easily interact with: Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS), Amazon SimpleDB, and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
Beside the redesign of DSAzure, XE2 also provides support for Amazon by shipping a new set of APIs (AmazonAPI), which interacts with the Amazon AWS services. Its usage is similar to the Azure API. Using these cloud APIs you can create queues, add messages to queues, and pop messages from queues. You can also upload files to and download files from the cloud using the blob/storage service cloud APIs.
Tip: A Cloud Explorer Demo is shipped with RAD Studio. The Cloud Explorer Demo demonstrates some capabilities of the Cloud API.
