This week PBDJ will publish part one of a series I am writing called
"PowerBuilder .NET RESTful Web Services: A quick-start how-to guide".
I'm also producing an accompanying video demo series. To get the buzz going
I decided to make each section of the demo video separately available. When
all the pieces are completed I'll tie them all together in a single indexed
video tutorial. The complete video will most probably be published on
Sybase.com. In the first installment, I show the demo program UI and
explain the code structure architecture. Click on this link to watch the
It's well known that Sun Microsystems' Enterprise JavaBean (EJB)
specification is an industry-standard, vendor-neutral, portable architecture
for middle-tier transactional components. In an industry starved for
standardization, both the server vendor and the development community have

PowerBuilder 12 WPF .NET. In addition to the actual code study and
migration, I wrote a series of articles and produced a set... (more)
Yours truly has been busy for the last few months learning the ins and outs

The blog is a .NET update for or all of you who are already familiar with
multithreading in PowerBuilder Classic using the SharedObject API
Jm recently posted this brief message in the Sybase.Public.PowerBuilder.NET
news group, "When we have a multi-thread programming in PB?? is
urgent..." To which Chris Pollach replied "We have had multi-threaded
programming in PowerBuilder since Sybase introduced "SharedObjects" back in
the PB version 6.0 release! :-) Note: I am not sure how well it works
under the new WPF model in PB 12.net"
I decided to pull out the old trusty SharedObjec... (more)
