Expected performance level

When comparing a PowerBuilder application to the performance of a Web application deployed by PowerServer to a LAN environment, generally speaking the performance of the two will be quite similar. In some cases (for certain operations) Appeon may actually be even faster than PowerBuilder.

The reason is that Appeon has been tuned for nearly a decade to offer the best performance possible for real-life PowerBuilder applications:

  • Large PowerBuilder applications up to 600MB (of PBLs) including several thousand DataWindows and thousands of Windows.

  • Complex screens containing as much as 80 DataWindows in a single Window

  • Dynamically created objects (DataWindows, UserObjects, etc.)

  • PFC and other high-overhead frameworks similar to PFC.
