How is it Evolving?
An exciting roadmap is planned for PowerBuilder, delivered to our customers in agile 6-12 month cycles. A completely revamped IDE is planned for the next major version, and in the meantime more valuable features are coming to revisions of PowerBuilder 2022, such as enhanced graph DataWindow, tabbed sheet UI, navigation pane, email client, and more.
What’s New in 2022
More Productive, More Secure, More Compatible
The latest PowerBuilder has been enhanced to boost development productivity, provide more security mechanisms to safeguard your app, and support the latest Windows and database versions.
"PB 2022 runs significantly faster than PB 2019 R3! We have made a computation index for our application to measure the performance of the machine running it, so our customers know what to expect from our application. And the index is 60% faster with PB 2022 compared to PB 2019 R3."
"We are so pleased with PowerClient Deployment in Appeon PowerBuilder and we decided to delay our rollout for our Mainstay Profession product in order to update to this release. I have to say each Appeon PowerBuilder release is a new milestone, we are seeing huge leaps forward, and I really encourage everyone to look at what is new in the latest version and to make the most of the new features."
Technical Director, Powersoft Computer Services Ltd
"We are thrilled with the zero touch deployments with PowerClient, the new OLE driver for SQL Server, the improved Git branching support, and the many other valuable improvements Appeon had made in this release. Truly the best PowerBuilder version ever!"
President, Intertech Consulting, Inc
"We are using Appeon PowerBuilder to create software that integrates our ERP with digital platforms like Shopify, Amazon, PrestaShop, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Wish, and many others. Thanks to the latest objects like HTTPClient, RESTClient, CoderObject, JSONParser, and JSONGenerator, we have been able to accomplish our tasks. Most of these platforms provide RESTful Web APIs that we need to call in order to send them all the information about our products, pictures, price, and inventory."
CEO, Size and Colors
"Better integration with Git, PowerClient Deployment worth the upgrade to Appeon PowerBuilder on their own. Migration process still stable and new installer is a good improvement."
