Delphi to Adopt LINQ Technology

eWeek's Darryl K. Taft writes in "Borland Plans to Support MS LINQ in Delphi Platform," published September 17, 2005:

Microsoft announced its Language Integrated Query Project earlier this month, and already third parties are talking about extending their technology to support the software giant's heralded new technology. In a Weblog post, Borland Software Corp.'s chief scientist Danny Thorpe talked about how Borland's Delphi programming environment can take advantage of LINQ (Language Integrated Query) to enable developers to more easily integrate and manipulate data in building Delphi-based applications.
ISV support for and comment on LINQ is growing. Danny's post relates primarily to LINQ's SQL-like syntax for querying data sources exposed by DLinq. (Note: Anders Hejlsberg held Danny's position at Borland before moving to Microsoft.) --rj Technorati:
