Why Appeon Server data source?

The data source for a Web or Mobile application is the counterpart to the transaction object in the target PowerBuilder application. The transaction properties in the target PowerBuilder application contain database connection parameters, which should be correspondingly configured in data sources.

Appeon Web applications and Appeon Mobile applications rely on Appeon Server data sources to interact with the database servers. When creating a data source, you can use different JDBC drivers. However, Appeon has some recommendations on which JDBC driver is to be used for certain types of databases.
