Most existing PowerBuilder?applications are?large, complex and somewhat stable.

When end-users request a change in application permission features, it involves a costly development cycle (design, impact analysis, modification, testing, deployment...).

What if you could make those changes:

  • Without?touching your code?
  • Without even redeploying the application?

In this presentation you will see:

  • How to externalize security rules in Visual Guard
  • How to create new permissions without changing the application currently in production
  • How to grant these permissions at any time, to login/password accounts or Windows Accounts
Presenter: Christophe Dufourmantelle

The annual Novalys Powerbuilder survey results are in. Thanks to the participation of the community of PB developers, we've got a look at the trends. Not only did we look at the current use of PowerBuilder but we also analyzed the impact of Java and .NET on PowerBuilder users. Java/JEE technology has been used widely for many years but Microsoft uses all its marketing power to impose its platform, rallying the Sybase capabilities to its cause

What are the most awaited developments of PB? What proportion of PB teams adopted .NET technology in 2010? Who's still using PB5? Who has moved to PB12? Where do you fit in?
Take the 2011 PowerBuilder survey and see the results from 2010!


A well-partitioned application will open the way for future code migration to other GUI platforms. One of the main goals of PowerBuilder Classic application refactoring is to divide the code into logical partitions. Although you will likely not gain significant performance increases in exchange for your efforts, you will achieve two other highly significant gains. This article explains those two goals.

The first in a series of short articles on moving to mobile: SUP is a Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP), which in my opinion and also of folks like Gartner, is the only way forward in multiple application mobilization and multiple device support. SUP abstracts the data access and Business Logic into Mobile Business Objects (MBO's) that take care of accessing, updating and deleting back end data. This series looks at how to use SUP to go mobile.
