Now you are approaching “dangerous” territory. :-) Just because Delphi
and Lazarus promotes the idea of RAD development - definitely doesn’t
mean you should.
If you want to develop any easy to maintain application over a long
term - definitely DO NOT USE RAD style development. This was proven
over and over. RAD is only good for prototyping or small utility apps.
There is no substitute for well designed code - like when using the
well documented (tried and tested) Design Patterns, or well separated
code (UI layer, Storage layer, Business rules).
Designing a Service or Daemon application without TTimer usage
definitely doesn't mean it is “bad” or “legacy” coding style. It might
just mean you are not using RAD style development. Nothing wrong with
