Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Delphi console application

Is it possible to write a non-interactive program in Delphi 2.0 that does something quick in the background without opening a form or a console window?

Sure, but you have to be pretty careful about it.

First, start a new project, then remove the main form form of the application. Then the code you'll write will go either into the project file itself, or another unit that the project file "uses." From the project file, you can call some main procedure for your program and it will run just fine. However, for true background processing, you'll probably want to run your program in a separate thread.
