comment Which of these 3 languages is easiest to convert to Delphi?
@kessler -- The version is free but is under the GPL, which may not work if you have a commercial product. There are other totally free versions in Delphi that you have probably found. In any case, it's not a huge algorithm and porting from c++/c#/java should not be huge deal. I suspect the c# version would be most direct. Why not offer to sell your work back to the vendor so they can potentially profit from offering new language version? Maybe they wouldn't pay you, but instead would offer you all three of their versions for free.

comment What have my fellow Delphi programmers done to make Eclipse/Java more like Delphi?
Sorry, just looked more closely at the link I left in previous comment and it doesn't appear to work with design-time visual controls like Delphi and FP/Lazarus usually do Instead it creates the controls at runtime and uses an eventhandler, perhaps similar to way Java forces you to do things already.

Probably not a great alternative yet, but I was curious to see that the FreePascal/Lazarus open source Delphi clone has some investing effort to make it work properly on Android: ( wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/Android_Interface/… ) FP/Lazarus isn't quite as polished as Delphi, but it's been making steady progress over the years at becoming an excellent Delphi clone.
