Classified features

While new features are added in PowerBuilder, some of the existing features might no longer be needed or recommended for use. You will find the following three classifications of features in the PowerBuilder Help.

  • Discontinued - feature that has been completely removed from the product.

    For example, EAServer projects/targets, PowerBuilder .NET IDE, and Windows Form projects/targets are discontinued features.

  • Obsolete - feature that is available, but is no longer eligible for technical support and will no longer be enhanced.

    For example, Web DataWindow, SOAP client, DataWindow data source using OData Service and SOAP Web Service, .NET Web service target, .NET assembly target are obsolete features.

  • Stable – feature that is available and is still eligible for technical support, but will no longer be enhanced.
