Hi Adrian,

Currently, we don't have a plan to support TLS 1.3 yet, we'll record it as a new requirement/enhancement request and will transfer it to our product team for consideration.
 
BTW, for how to use the HTTPClient object to consume a WCF Service, you can refer to the following link for detail.

Hi Govinda,

Yes we have read all the documentation on the new PB 2018 RESTful features, and the roadmap ahead. But we can't find anything on calling WCF .SVC Web Services. Appeon has left that it out completely, and we do think there is a ton of institution that have adopted WCF web services. I do think it's a very much needed feature.

Hi Adrian,

I believe that our PowerBuilder FAQ's can help answer your questions better: https://www.appeon.com/products/powerbuilder/2017-faqs/product.html

- Are there any features that have been discontinued?
-- Yes.  Although PowerBuilder 2017 and newer versions are based on the PowerBuilder 12.6 code base, Appeon removed the following features:

PB.NET (Visual Studio IDE) & WPF Projects
EAServer Projects/Targets
Windows Form
Web DataWindow
If you are using a version of PowerBuilder that is older than 12.6, please refer to SAP documentation about features that have been removed in previous versions.

- Why is PB.NET (Visual Studio IDE) being discontinued?
-- .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 2018, 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.

Hi Govinda,

Yes we consume .Net Web Services, what we can't consume are WCF Web Services. It can be done from PB 12 .Net.

Hi Adrian,

Have you tested the Cloud and Universal Editions of PowerBuilder? You may find that these editions can create/consume .Net Assemblies and .Net Web Services. It might be what you are looking for.

You may find more information about it the PowerBuilder Documentation.

The Mexican Internal Revenue Service is developing and deploying some WFC web services for extraction of invoice information from vendors. This feature will become a must for all ERP software that need to validate purchase and sales invoices. Currently PowerBuilder Classic doesn't have a workaround for this and is a much needed feature.
