Appeon announced on July 5, 2016 that it entered into an agreement with SAP to develop a new generation of the PowerBuilder development platform. Below are some answers to some common questions about the new generation of PowerBuilder.  The official press release is available to view here.

.NET is a very important part of the PowerBuilder roadmap.  Rather than make an incremental change to PB.NET, Appeon is investing to totally revamp PowerBuilder’s approach to .NET, its server-side architecture, and interoperability with open standards.

Beginning with PowerBuilder 2019, developers can leverage new targets to rapidly create RESTful Web APIs and non-visual .NET assemblies, in a test-driven manner, with the native PowerBuilder IDE and C#.  Compared to PB.NET, these targets are 100% managed C# code and compatible with the .NET Core.  OAuth 2.0 authentication is provided out-of-the-box.  And you should notice a significant boost in performance and scalability.
