I need HTTPS client functionality using Indy with Delphi on Windows, OSX and iOS.

Can SSLBlackBox VCL edition be used for this?

Thank you.

should be possible but you will need the VCL and NG versions of the components.
If you just want SSL - why do you not use just Indy?
But SecureBlackbox is awesome - no doubt about that.

Thank you for your interest in our products.

SecureBlackbox has its own components for HTTPS . They are available in VCL edition for Windows and MacOS X (also useable with FPC for iOS), and in new NG edition for Delphi/iOS and Delphi/Android. NG edition is in beta now.

Indy IOHandler is currently supported only on Windows. Maybe it would work on OS X as well, but this has not been tested. Also we don't have immediate plans to support it in NG edition (for Delphi/iOS and Delphi/Android) due to low demand.

We recommend that you look at our HTTP/HTTPS components.

Sincerely yours

Thank you for your answer.

I just found out about HTTPBlackbox. Can I use the VCL edition for HTTPS client functionality with Delphi on Windows and Mac OSX?

I am not interested in Indy in particular, I just thought it might be a good idea for cross-platform single code base (Windows and OSX). Can I use HTTPS Blackbox instead of Indy for a single code base cross platform HTTPS client using Delphi?

Yes, SecureBlackbox includes client components for all major protocols (IMAP is the exception and we are working on it) and Indy is not needed at all - SecureBlackbox components offer equal or wider functionality. And of course the your codebase would be the same, as components for all platforms are compiled from the same source code.

Thank you. HTTPBlackbox looks like what I need.

When buying a licence for the VCL edition, does the license include the source code?

I tested the trial version and when raising exceptions, it asks for the .pas files. Source code would be useful for debugging.

Yes - source code is included.

In most cases exceptions are handled internally. You just need to add them to Exclusions list in Debugger settings in IDE.
