Sample Applications

There are 3 sample applications up to now supplied with the framework sources, which purpose is to:
- show In-Memory ORM;
- show SQLite3-based ORM;
- basic Client/Server ORM.


Sample 01 - In Memory ORM
     purpose of this sample is to show the basic ORM usage of the framework:
   - a TSampleRecord class is defined in Unit1.pas
   - a static server (i.e. in-memory database) is initialized (see TSQLRestServerStatic.Create); it will store the data in a JSON file in the disk and won't require the SQLite3 database engine
   - the purpose of the form in Unit1.pas is to add a record to thedatabase; the Time field is filled with the current date and time
   - the 'Find a previous message' button show how to perform a basic query
   - on application quit, the Database.Destroy will update the JSON file
   - since the framework use UTF-8 encoding, we use some basic functions for fast conversion to/from the User Interface; in real applications, you should better use our SQLite3i18n unit and the corresponding TLanguageFile.StringToUTF8() and TLanguageFile.UTF8ToString() methods
   - note the tiny size of the EXE (since we don't use SQLite3), less than 80KB with LVCL

Sample 02 - Embedded SQLite3 ORM
     purpose of this sample is to show embedded SQLite3 database usage:
   - a TSampleRecord class is defined in Unit1.pas
   - a SQLite3 server is initialized (see TSQLRestServerDB.Create below) and will work embedded, i.e. not in Client/Server mode here
   - the CreateMissingTables method will create all necessary tables in the SQLite3 database
   - the purpose of the form in Unit1.pas is to add a record to the database; the Time field is filled with the current date and time
   - the 'Find a previous message' button show how to perform a basic query
   - since the framework use UTF-8 encoding, we use some basic functions for fast conversion to/from the User Interface; in real applications, you should better use our SQLite3i18n unit and the corresponding TLanguageFile.StringToUTF8() and TLanguageFile.UTF8ToString() methods
   - note that you didn't need to write any SQL statement, only define a class and call some methods; even the query was made very easy (just an obvious WHERE clause to write)
   - thanks to the true object oriented modeling of the framework, the same exact Unit1 is used for both static in-memory database engine, or with SQLite3 database storage: only the TForm1.Database object creation instance was modified
   - look at the tiny size of the EXE (even with SQLite3 engine embedded), less than 400KB with LVCL

Sample 03 - NamedPipe Client-Server
     purpose of this sample is to show Client/Server SQLite3 database usage:
   - a TSampleRecord class is defined in Unit1.pas
   - this sample uses down projects, Project03Client.dpr and Project03Server.dpr
   - a SQLite3 server is initialized in Project03Server
   - the CreateMissingTables method will create all necessary tables in the SQLite3 database
   - one or more client instances can be run in Project03Client
   - the purpose of the Client form in Unit1.pas is to add a record to the database; the Time field is filled with the current date and time
   - the 'Find a previous message' button show how to perform a basic query
   - since the framework use UTF-8 encoding, we use some basic functions for fast conversion to/from the User Interface; in real applications, you should better use our SQLite3i18n unit and the corresponding TLanguageFile.StringToUTF8() and TLanguageFile.UTF8ToString() methods
   - note that you didn't need to write any SQL statement, only define a class and call some methods; even the query was made very easy (just an obvious WHERE clause to write)
   - thanks to the true object oriented modeling of the framework, the same exact Unit1 is used for both static in-memory database engine, or with SQLite3 database storage: only the TForm1.Database object creation instance was modified
   - look at the tiny size of the EXE (even with SQLite3 engine embedded), less than 400KB for the server, and 80KB for the client, with LVCL...
