Configuring Appeon Developer

Appeon Developer, a component of Appeon for PowerBuilder, extends the capabilities of PowerBuilder, allowing a new or existing PowerBuilder application to be converted into a bona fide Web Application, using only PowerBuilder skills.

Appeon Developer provides a set of tools that enable the entire PowerBuilder-to-Web process to take place within the PowerBuilder IDE. These tools are accessed via a toolbar in the PowerBuilder IDE. The Appeon Developer toolbar automatically loads each time PowerBuilder is opened.
