New in PowerBuilder 2017

This release was designed with ease of upgrade ability in mind for existing SAP customers. The desktop target brings some much-needed core enhancements, and a revolutionary new mobile target is introduced.

Upgrade Your OS and DB
Both the PowerBuilder IDE and desktop apps can be reliably deployed to Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016. Updated database drivers are supported for the latest versions of SQL Server, Oracle, SQL Anywhere, and ASE.

Easily Generate PDFs
Generate PDFs from within PowerBuilder itself. There is no need to go through cumbersome PDF printer installations or license expensive PDF libraries. Simple APIs are provided with flexible printing options.

Go Mobile and Cloud
A new Mobile Cloud App target is introduced (powered by Appeon Mobile). Most PowerBuilder functionality and Apache Cordova plugins are supported. Projects deploy to iOS and Android as well as leading cloud providers.
