Generate installable clouds apps automatically
Once a PowerServer profile is configured, the compiler will automatically generate an installable cloud app with a cloud-native architecture, including its REST APIs and the client app installer.
Minimal Code Changes
Utilize almost all PowerBuilder features
Powered by the native PowerBuilder runtime, the client app supports almost all PowerBuilder features, including the PFC framework. No application is too large or complex for it to handle.
PowerBuilder Skills Only
Develop & maintain within PowerBuilder
Developers maintain the project within the PowerBuilder IDE so that existing development skills and team can productively move your apps forward. Developers are shielded from the complexities of n-tier and REST API programming.
Multiple Compiler Targets
Compile both client/server and installable cloud apps
A single code base can be targeted for compilation as both a client/server and installable cloud app, eliminating the additional effort and complexities of maintaining two separate projects. Any PowerServer-specific code can be targeted using compiler directives.
Deploy PowerServer with container technology
The REST APIs generated by PowerServer can be deployed with container technologies, such as Docker/Kubernetes, to simplify your server deployment and automatically scale up/down resources as necessary.
Integrate PowerServer into your DevOps environment
PowerServer supports Git/SVN source control systems, automated building, and CI/CD tools, to make your development more agile and comply with DevOps requirements.
