Tutorial 8: Creating a standalone installable package

Each PowerBuilder installable cloud application is composed of two parts:

  • the application client-side which resides on the Web server

  • the PowerServer Web APIs which resides on the API server

Therefore, to create a standalone installable package for the PowerBuilder installable cloud application, you need to create two packages:

  • An executable installer or zipped file of the application client-side

  • A distributable package of the PowerServer Web APIs

After that, you will need to set the Web API URL correctly to the application client-side, so that the application knows where to access the PowerServer Web APIs at runtime.
