Delphi vs. FoxPro
Posted on 1998-06-29
I have been developing with Delphi 1 (and a glance at version 2) at it's beginning and was very pleased with it's capabilities. Now, in a different environment, I work with Visual FoxPro 5. We are thinking of upgrading to VFP 6 as soon as it comes out, but voices tell us to not even think about it and migrate to Delphi 3 (and soon 4) as soon as possible before we pop out of VFP due to it's limited DB and Connectivity capabilities, and if we want to be approached seriously in the future.
How will Delphi (4!) handle my legacy Visual FoxPro databases (native?) and is it really worth wile to switch? Are there hard fact sheets with the differences between the two? Can you even compare them, as my experience with Delphi goes back to version 1?
Many thanks for any advise
