Thread What is managed code?

Hi everyone,

I notice that Tim keeps saying that ElevateDB v5 is going to be 100%
managed code.  I've also heard that in a few other places.

Excuse my ignorance, but what does that mean?  It sounds pretty neat
and kind of important, but other than that I have no clue.

David;
I believe it has to do with .NET,  in that there is an underlying framework.

"Managed code is code that has its execution managed by the .NET Framework
Common Language Runtime. It refers to a contract of cooperation between
natively executing code and the runtime."

It's kind of a shorthand way of saying that the code will run completely
under the .NET CLR and not require any interoperability calls to external
DLLs, etc. that are not part of the .NET CLR.

Thanks for that answer Tim (and you too Allan).  Makes sense now.

I assume that this only applies in the case of DBISAM/ElevateDB to the
..NET versions, and not the VCL versions.  In other words we won't need
..Net installed to use th new version.

My understanding is that managed DBISAM 5 (ElevateDB) will be compiled with Delphi2006 for .NET and the unmanaged
DBISAM 5 will be compiled with delphi 2006 for Win32 (or any delphi version from Delphi 5 for Win32), and both are using
the same code base. This is possible from Tim's post that version 5 uses no pointers but use Objects and streams, therefore
it can be compiled by the Win32 and .NET Delphi compilers.

You are correct, but the next version (ElevateDB) will also be available for
Delphi 5, 6, 7, and 2005, as well as Kylix 2 and 3 and C++Builder 5 and 6.
There will also be the ODBC driver and ADO.NET data provider.

What about BDS's C++ flavor?
