Yesterday I attended the Embarcadero XE2 conference in Arlington, Virginia. I’m still trying to determine if it would be worthwhile to upgrade from Delphi 2006. I really like the LiveBindings implementation and FireMonkey, but I didn’t hear a single reference to MVC. I also asked if they have the capability to define the object model and then migrate it into a database schema automatically as you can do with Django/Python, and the answer was No. If they would implement this easy database creation functionality that is available via Django, as well as Better GUI Separation and Abstraction , i.e. MVC, then the upgrade decision would be easy.
