Delphi and Redis

Redis is short for Remote Dictionary Server and it is a NoSQL-Database or more specific, a Key-Value-Store. Since there was no Client for Delphi, I decided to write one by myself.

The project is available on Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/delphi-redis/
It uses the Indy TCP Client by default, but you can use either Constructor or Property Injection to switch to another implementation.


Delphi and JSON

I am currently developing my own JSON Library for Delphi. There are already libraries for that, but none of them suited my needs.
There is the built-in DBXJSON, which is used in the DataSnap part of Delphi. However, it is a bit of a hassle to work with.
There is TlkJSON from Simon Stuart, which has (or had, I don't know the current status) some problems with Umlauts (ä,ö,ü,ß, etc.)
There is the Delphi Web Utils from Jose Fabio N Almeida, which has some memory issues and other bugs, and most importantly, does not work well under XE2. It also hasn't been updated for a while.
And there is the SuperObject which is very powerful, but it has IMO a horrible syntax.

Since I was using the Delphi Web Utils before and I didn't want to rewrite all my other code when switching libraries, I designed my Interfaces and Classes in a similar way, e.g. the objects and array have methods named "Put" and "GetString".

I have released my library on Google Code. You can check it out via subversion or you can download the zipfile. Any feedback or help is appreciated. It uses Generics, Rtti (for TValue) and Regular Expressions, which is why it is targeted only for newer versions of Delphi (XE and XE2).
