Hong Kong, September 14, 2016 – Appeon Corporation today announced the general availability of Appeon 2016, a new major release of Appeon’s solution for deploying SAP PowerBuilder applications to web and mobile targets.  This release further simplifies the deployment of web and mobile apps, and enriches mobile functionality with support for Apache Cordova plugins.   It provides expanded software environment compatibility, for example supporting the new Edge browser, the open-source PostgreSQL database, and version 10 of the open-source WildFly Java EE server.  Appeon 2016 is faster and easier than ever for cloudifying and mobilizing your systems.

 What’s New?

This major release includes a number of notable new features:

  • Installable Web Application. Appeon Web applications can now be installed and run without a Web browser, avoiding cumbersome configuration issues and streamlining access.
  • Apache Cordova Plugins.   Enrich your mobile apps with the vast library of Apache Cordova Plugins, which are easily accessible via simple PowerScript APIs.  
  • Easy Mobile Deployment.  Both Workspace & standalone mobile apps can be instantly installed to the mobile device by scanning an application-specific QR code.
  • Auto-Upgrading for Mobile. The runtimes for Workspace and standalone mobile apps are now automatically updated as long as  users are managed by the AEM.
  • Print Functions for Android.  Print functions like Print, PrintBitMap, Print DataWindow, etc. are now available for your use on Android, in addition to printing on iOS.
  •  Enhanced Mobile UX.  Additional APIs are provided to give developers more control over the mobile UX, for example, setting the keyboard type in EditMasks and DataWindows.
