Delphi vs Powerbuilder
I used to be a Delphi fan until I came accross PB back in 1995. It took me
some time to be convinced, however, I need assistance to convince people who
are ignorant about PB that PB is a much better tool than Delphi.
It always sounds better coming from somebody else in another part of the

What is the difference in Powerbilder 9.0 and 8.0?
I would like to point out that the Appeon newsgroup is monitored by Sybase
and Appeon engineering staff who are very knowledgeable about Appeon issues.
Question that are purely PowerBuilder-related are best answered by the staff
and users of the PowerBuilder newsgroup: sybase.public.powerbuilder.XXXX.
Please post to the appropriate newsgroup so you receive the help you desire.

A friend of mine is working in a company who is actually looking for
a new programmation language. Has someone an idea about the
strong and the weak points of Powerbuilder ?
The head of his company argues that Sybase will go down in the
and that PB encounters huge stability problems (it's seen as a rather
"buggy" language). They say also that the number of PB projects
decreases time after time ...
I would appreciate the objective (!) advices of some people aware

We use PB6.5.
We would want to use a DLL create from PB in a PB application.
We compiled an a PBL as DLL.
After we tried to use DLL in a user object external, but without success.
How can we do to use DLL create from PB or use in a new PB application some
object (visual and no) before compiled with PB?
Any help will be appreciated.
When you create a DLL from a PB library it is not really a standard Windows
DLL. I'm not sure what the difference is. If you are making calls from PB
then just use the standard PB calling syntax the ...Powerbuilder 5 to Powerbuilder 10

The way we do it from VB4&6 is to actually run a PB executable, to which we
pass reportname and optional arguments.

...Powerbuilder vs Java vs C#
Just a bit of a rant really, not trying to start any wars or anything (just
my personal opinions)
I use powerbuilder for work, have been since version 5
we develop a suite of about 5 applications client/sever apps
i have used java in my spare time for a similar sized application (just 1
app, not a suite of them)
i have started using Visual C# 2005 because according to all the stuff i
pb is going to dotnet and it would be a good idea to get the hang of things
in dotnet before pb11 comes around the corner
other langauges i have used alot are perl and php

This is a comparison between PB and VB , not what you asked
for i know, but it kinda sums up the PB advantages.

As I sit here throwing ASA8 databases across a network so I can use
Powerbuilder8's 'pipeline' object at my desk to transfer data among
these several dbs, I'm taking time for a question...
>>>How come INPUT doesn't work?<<<
The table in question is 4 columns, integer, char(6), char(8) and
timestamp. And it's that pesky timestamp that seems to stump Interactive
SQL, but is easy for the PB pipeline.
I create the rows with either PB's 'SaveRowsAs..' or with ISQL's OUTPUT.
And the data exports correctly.

Our company is going to upgrade PowerBuilder. Currently we are using version
7, and we are going to upgrade either to version 9 or 10.
Does anyone have any recommendations if we should go for version 9 or 10?
What is the current release of version 10, and is it stable or is there a
lot of bugs?
If you have any hope of running the applications in the future on XP, W2003
or soon to be W2006 (LongHorn) you will have to jump over to UniCode - ie
PB10. So personally, I would recommend starting with P...Migrating PowerBuilder 8 to Powerbuilder 11

you'll have to Edit Source to modify it.
