About deploying applications

PowerBuilder lets you develop and deploy applications for many application architectures.

Traditional client/server applications

The primary focus of this chapter is on building an executable file and packaging a single- or two-tier application for deployment. The chapter helps you decide whether to use compiled code or pseudocode, whether to use dynamic libraries (PBDs or DLLs) and how to organize them, and whether to deploy resources such as bitmaps and icons separately or use a PowerBuilder Resource file (PBR).

Internet and distributed applications

When you build a client in a multitier application, you need to make many of the same choices as you do for a traditional client/server application.
