What is PowerBuilder?
PowerBuilder is an object-oriented development environment.
It’s the most efficient solution for quickly developing database-driven business applications. Its unbeatable productivity is due in part to the Datawindow, an object that automatically generates SQL Statements.
PowerBuilder also includes native database drivers for Oracle, Microsoft, Sybase and IBM, as well as a powerful scripting language (PowerScript). With the compiling of the code and the partitioning of applications, PowerBuilder allows for the creation and deployment of applications for a large number of platforms on the market.
