From the Publisher

Using PowerBuilder in a real-world, corporate environment: a complete guide and toolset. This is the first guide to the realities of using PowerBuilder in mission-critical corporate applications. It describes the necessary elements required to set up a working client/server infrastructure for developing GUI applications. It covers everything from setting up the team environment to database and networking considerations and building three-tier client/server systems. It presents actual PowerBuilder coding techniques, performance tips, and pitfalls to avoid. Part Two of the book details a strong application framework that serves as a guide for development. Each object is detailed completely so the reader will understand each element of the framework throroughly. The accompanying CD-ROM provides unrestricted use of thousands of lines of proven, valuable PowerBuilder code. Extensive examples, written for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle 7, are provided throughout. A powerful Oracle7 database performance monitor is included for Oracle users, along with other custom software showing practical uses for the techniques described in the book. For all corporate application developers who use or are interested in using PowerBuilder.
