Project Overview

InstantObjects is an integrated framework for developing object-oriented business solutions in Delphi™. The framework provides the foundation for the development process as well as the engine that powers the final application.

InstantObjects offers:

  • Model realization in the Delphi IDE via integrated two-way tools.
  • Object persistence in the most common relational databases or flat XML-based files.
  • Object presentation via standard data-aware controls.

Project Status

The project and its SVN source repository are hosted by SourceForge. You can keep up to date with the project development by subscribing to the RSS feed. Subscribe to RSS feed or going to the InstantObjects Development Wiki.

The project has been progressing slowly but steadily since its first release as open source. Currently, the team is preparing to release version 3.0.

All InstantObjects users are invited to join us in the newsgroups and contribute.
