Release Bulletin (*.pdf)

Installation Guide (*.pdf)

PowerBuilder is the easiest, fastest, and most cost-effective application development tool for creating high-performance, data-driven business applications. PowerBuilder is both revolutionary and proven technology that has uniquely evolved to stay in synch with the latest functionality and visual user interface advances. PowerBuilder IS .NET…and so much more.

PowerBuilder 12.6: It IS .NET…and so much more!

Sybase PowerBuilder 12.6 is the second full-fledged .NET release of the market’s favorite application development tool, bringing true power and ease of use to .NET. In the box, you’ll find two Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) that give you options. You can build and deploy applications in a traditional Client/Server architecture, deploy to WebForms, WindowForms, or Smart Client applications. Or, you can leverage the power of the new IDE, built on top of Visual Studio, to develop stellar Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) applications. Or, you can use both. You can even migrate your Win32 applications to WPF, something that no other tool provides you. PowerBuilder supports Microsoft’s Common Language Specification (CLS) and its .NET features enable you to deploy NVOs and CVUOs as assemblies for your Visual Studio teammates. In short, PowerBuilder IS .NET, but it’s much, much more than just that.
