This video will give you an overview of how to write a Delphi REST server and then access it via an Android client, both of which we will write from scratch. We will also look at a REST server that is in production and the Android application that uses it.
In March 2013 Alister Christie had the pleasure of presenting at the ADUG Symposium, this was a one-day event held in both Melbourne and Sydney. It was well attended and everyone seemed to enjoy his talk. His presentation lasted an hour and a half long and covers the basics of writing a REST server in Delphi and then consuming that service via an Android client written in Java. During the preparation for his talk, Alister did a screen recording and also recorded both Melbourne and Sydney events. As part of this package, you will get the screen recording (where you can see the code clearly) and the Melbourne event (which you can see both Alister and the screen).

Delphi XE3 was used for this presentation and it should also work in Delphi XE4, XE2 introduced the mobile connectors.
