PBTV: Using .NET Assemblies with PowerBuilder

Wednesday, December 5, 2012
at 9:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)

This presentation covers techniques to create and implement a ‘datawindow enhancement service’ within an existing PowerBuilder application with the goal of providing improved functionality while keeping disruption to application users to a minimum. It is similar to the session presented at the 2012 PowerBuilder Developers Conference held in October in conjunction with SAP TechEd. Focus for this session will be on the creation of the service object, implementing example functionality enhancements with existing datawindows, and ideas for further expansion of the service.

PBTV: Building Customizable Applications using CRAFT

Thursday, November 29, 2012
at 9:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)

Create a business application in just a few days or change the business logic immediately after a customer request. This session presents CRAFT, a software platform for building customizable and complex business applications. CRAFT does not require expert programming skills — knowledge of SQL is sufficient — and its visual tools allow developers to build applications rapidly, even without a single line of code. Applications can be customized easily during implementation at a customer site. The CRAFT software platform:

• Leverages the full power of DataWindow technology for creating user interfaces and reports.
• Enables software developers to create and manage application business objects definition, their representation (using DataWindow forms visual designer), and their business logic (if needed) using embedded high-level object-oriented language.
• Program language syntax is very similar to PowerScript® language (with some extensions) —  PowerBuilder developers will have minimal learning time.
• Supports the most well-known SQL databases (Oracle, Microsoft SQL, MySQL, InterBase, Firebird, PostgreSQL), and can be used as a prototyping tool, as a report generator, and as a tool for business analysis.

PBTV: Gantt Chart Planner — Consuming .NET Assemblies in PowerBuilder .NET

Tuesday, November 27, 2012
at 9:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)

Construction companies need an overview of their planning and work in progress. HBBSoft, a PowerBuilder .NET application, aims to achieve this purpose using Gantt and scheduling. The application is able to communicate with the Microsoft Exchange Calendar using Microsoft Exchange Web Services (EWS) to plan employees’ tasks immediately into the Outlook calendar. This presentation covers several techniques used in the HBBSoft application:

• .NET user authentication.
• Consuming Exchange Web Services to sync with Exchange Calendar.
• Custom Expression Blend toolbar.
• Integration of third-party Gantt and schedule controls.

How to Migrate 7000 Objects in 180 PBLs from PowerBuilder Classic to PowerBuilder .NET

Tuesday, November 20, 2012
at 9:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)

This session presents Turkcell’s project experiences, and discusses the migration process in technical detail. As of 2011, Turkcell — with its 64.8 million subscribers — is not only the leading telecommunications operator in Turkey, but also the third-largest GSM operator in Europe in terms of subscriber number. The company’s development team has been using PowerBuilder for more than 10 years, beginning with version 6.5 and currently is using version 12.5. Turkcell’s enterprise telecommunications application NEMS consists of 180 PBLs and more than 7000 objects that work with SAP Sybase ASE in more than 2000 tables as a native Windows application. There are 16 different modules under NEMS. Recently, Turkcell began an effort to migrate from PowerBuilder Classic to PowerBuilder .NET. Within this project, NEMS will be split into different targets creating separate native Windows applications for easy maintenance which then will be migrated to .NET. As an application of 180 PBLs, it is a difficult process to find and split the independent objects from others while considering base objects — such as PFC objects from which all DataWindows and Windows are inherited — and also common objects such as global functions. So far, Turkcell has migrated four of the 16 modules, and the project is targeted to be complete in September 2012.

PBTV: VHG-Tools Platform — PowerBuilder .NET, Expression Blend, Web, and Cloud

Tuesday, November 13, 2012
at 9:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)


The VHG-Tools platform is an application environment based on the former Capital Architect program. The platform is developed in PowerBuilder .NET and is used to present several tools anywhere, any time. Capital Architect, now called Capital Simulator, is one of the tools integrated within this new platform. Last year, a session illustrated the implementation of the controls developed in Expression Blend within PowerBuilder .NET, and showed how the application was mobilized on several platform-independent devices. This session shows the continued evolution of style, speed, mobility, and platform independency and covers several techniques:
• Multithreading.
• Custom-styling DataWindows with PowerBuilder .NET using WPF “styles.”
• Customizing Expression Blend buttons.
• The integration of third-party control “amcharts.”
• SMS service (a plain and simple solution).
• .NET active directory user authentication.
• Browser integration.
• Web integration using Cloud Portal.

PBTV: Creating and Consuming Web Services Based on SQL Queries in PowerBuilder

Tuesday Oct 30th 2012 at 10:00 AM PST (Los Angeles) – 18h00 CET (Paris)

Unlike direct connections to the database, Web services can be managed and secured outside of an application and used by any Website or client/server, Web, or mobile application. A PowerBuilder application then can use Web services to return data sets as data sources of the application’s DataWindows. This facilitates the incorporation of PowerBuilder applications and Web services into a cloud computing environment.

 

 

This session explains and demonstrates how to:

  • Build a data store based on a chosen query and structure that can be used for constructing Web service output.
  • Create a class (NVO) as a wrapper of a Web service with the necessary “Get_…()” functions that populate arrays of structures from respective data store(s).
  • Deploy a created Web service to an IIS Web server including the creation of a WSDL file.
  • Create a DataWindow with a Web service as a data source.
  • Choose a proper Web service and find its desired method (“Get_…()” function).
  • Select a proper parameter from the chosen Web service method and finalize the created DataWindow to solve hidden problems with the string data type.
