The PowerBuilder Document Object Model: The Sybase implementation of DOM, defines how XML documents can be accessed and manipulated.
PowerBuilder developers will be able to continue to do so in.NET environment.
Code navigation: from generated class diagrams, developers can navigate through classes and objects and open the appropriate PowerBuilder painter by double-clicking a specific object and pointing to specific code.
It allows users to input, retrieve, and display multiple languages in Unicode on the same page at the same time.
Taken from our five day Advanced PowerBuilder course, this book introduces the reader to advanced techniques used to develop fully functional, well-performing business applications using PowerBuilder.Among the topics presented are advanced DataWindow reporting and presentation styles, dynamic modification of DataWindow behavior, use of DataStores and DataWindow sharing, user objects,
This book is used in the company's actual advanced class, so you also get a disk with exercises and solutions.
PowerBuilder 6.0 will run the AIX and HP-UX Unix operating systems, in addition to the current Windows 95, Windows NT, Mac OS, and Solaris support.
The tool, developed under the code name Panther, includes the ability to package the PowerBuilder client run-time software as an ActiveX component, allowing it to be distributed across the Internet and corporate intranets.
Sybase executives describe the suite as a one-stop package for developers building multi-tier, Web client, and thin-client systems using Java.
PowerBuilder 9: Internet and Distributed Application Development is the collaborative effort of computer expters William Green and John D. Olson and comprehensively presents the new capabilities of PowerBuilder 9 along with the architecture and patterns required to create distributed systems in PowerBuilder.
Jaguar Development With Powerbuilder 7 (Powerbuilder Developer's Library)
Save yourself some money and wait or something that actually shows you how to develop internet and distributed applications -- this one does not!!!
This is the first installment of a four-part series about creating a drop-down list of fonts that displays each font name in the actual font, as well as building a full font selector window as seen in many Windows applications.
The article demonstrates how to take a snapshot of a window in your PowerBuilder application and paste it into Microsoft Word.
Although PowerBuilder provides a save as to Excel file format, this function has several limitations, such as including all columns even if the user does not want them and not including
PowerBuilder can also be used to develop web-based applications which get information from (or feed information to) a database.
PSI is a part of the Sybase Partners program.
PowerBuilder is a powerful client/server programming environment from Sybase, Inc. It can be used with a variety of databases (e.g., Oracle, SQLServer) and implemented on a variety of platforms (e.g., Windows, UNIX).
This knowledge can be acquired by practicing with PowerBuilder 7.0 painters prior to taking this class, or by completing the Using the Sybase PowerBuilder 7.0 Integrated Development Environment CBT.
Identify obsolete syntax or functionality from prior versions of PowerBuilder prior to migration of existing applications to version 8.0.
Experienced PowerBuilder developers will quickly come up to speed on the features and capabilities in PowerBuilder 8.0 and discover how PowerBuilder technology can be used to develop middle-tier components, call components written in other component models, and browser based thin-client applications.
Information technology professionals experienced in developing applications in PowerBuilder and familiar with the programming techniques and the PowerBuilder interface; PowerBuilder developers wishing to learn how to optimally distribute applications
use server-push, shared objects, and other PowerBuilder 6.0 distributed computing technologies
To teach students effective techniques for distributing PowerBuilder application across multitiered architectures
With enhancements for XML, Java Server Pages and support for third-party application servers such as BEA's WebLogic and IBM's WebSphere, PowerBuilder 9.0 will allow developers to build for distributed, Web and client/server environments.
According to Murphy, Sybase has of late been lacking strength in the developer space.
However, he noted, PowerBuilder 9.0, EAServer 4.1 and other announcements such as the PocketBuilder plug-in to PowerBuilder and continuing improvements to PowerDesigner, should change that impression.
PowerBuilder 9.0 will also include XML DataWindow, which will allow developers to import data directly from XML (extensible markup language) documents or as a document using XSL Formatting Objects (Extensible Stylesheet Language-FO) syntax or PDF (Portable Document Format), said Fish.
In conjunction with third-party tools, XSL-FO makes it possible to import data into PowerBuilder from third-party applications such as Microsoft Word, he said.
After developers point to a.Net or J2EE (Java 2 Enterprise Edition) WSDL (Web Services Description Language) file, PowerBuilder will detect the relevant Web services and ports, and generate the object code to access the Web services described in the WSDL file, said Fish.
"The PowerBuilder upgrade fits in well with this evolutionary approach to Web services," Bloomberg said.
Other enhancements to PowerBuilder 9.0 include source control enhancements and integration with source code control tools, support for the PowerBuilder Native Interface and new scripting capabilities.
The beta version of PowerBuilder 9.0, announced Monday at Sybase's TechWave 2002 user and developer conference in San Diego, includes new features such as XML importation and support for JSPs (Java Server Pages) and for third-party application server platforms, such as IBM's WebSphere and BEA Systems Inc.'s WebLogic.
We'll show how the new OrcaScript feature can be used to fully automate the build process and integrate with the Source Code Control system.
The authors show you how the new OrcaScript feature can be used to fully automate the build process and integrate with the Source Code Control system, and they list the required PowerBuilder files that need to be deployed along with the compiled applications.
With OrcaScript, it is now possible to write command-line scripts that automate this process entirely.
