About Embarcadero C++ Builder Academic edition:

Programming in C++Builder is far more efficient than developing in other C/C++ environments or frameworks. C++Builder developers utilize the Visual Component Library (VCL) which encapsulates complex, time-consuming Windows API “adventures” into simple reusable and extendable components. Applications built with the VCL framework require writing, debugging, and testing far fewer lines of code, often up to 5x fewer lines of code that other “visual” C++ systems in real-world apps – without sacrificing performance or capability.

  • RAD two-way visual development environment and VCL component framework for building high quality and easy-to- maintain applications
  • High speed ANSI/ISO C/C++ compiler and tool chain with draft C++0x spec support
  • Integrated ISO C++ Standard Library, TR1, and Boost libraries


The more than 500 pre-built components included in C++Builder extend far beyond building user interfaces with advanced functionality for building database apps and connecting with cloud services. Extend and customize the included components, create your own, or use the thousands of free and commercial C++Builder and Delphi components. Whatever functionality you need, there’s likely a component available for it.

  • Components for building advanced and great looking user interfaces including Office-style ribbon controls, touch-enablement, reporting and charting
  • Advanced components for database app development, multi-tier applications, web apps, and internet connectivity

Embarcadero is a proud member of C++ Standards foundation, which is a Washington 501(c)(6) not-for- profit organization whose purpose is to support the C++ software developer community and promote the understanding and use of modern Standard C++ on all compilers and platforms.
