This week's book giveaways are in the Refactoring and Agile forums. We're giving away four copies each of Re-engineering Legacy Software and Docker in Action and have the authors on-line! See this thread and this one for details.
I have to mantain a legacy application written in Delphi Language, and I need to customize some forms in order to display Chinese characters. At the moment all efforts were unsuccesful; searching for a while on the web, I've found conflicting opinions about this task... someone says that this would be possibile, while others're stating that 's impossibile, unless migrating the whole project to a more moder version of Delphi IDE; moreover somebody else says that one need to configurate his own Windows system properly (adding support for Chinese and Japanese languages).
Migration would not be a very viable solution... before trying that approach, I'd like to know if anyone has ever succeeded in a similar problem.
