Large PowerBuilder Development

Large PowerBuilder Development

Post by Gene Schneid » Tue, 06 Feb 1996 04:00:00

The University at which I work is preparing to embark on a large PowerBuilder
development of our Student Records system.  This development will involve
approximately 10 developers, with the final system being distributed to around
400 users.

We are using an Oracle7 database on a DEC Alpha 6400 running OpenVMS, which
will hold a database of approximately 150 Entities.  We don't know how many
screens, etc. there will be, although there will be a lot!

There are relatively few PowerBuilder sites with experience in Perth Australia,
so I was wondering if anyone from one of the countries that have been using
PowerBuilder for a substantial time (Eg. Europe or the US) could provide
comment on how they've found PowerBuilder suitable for such a development?

By the way, we also need to provide access for Macintosh users, which make-up
about 50% of our users.

Any comments much appreciated.  They don't have to be long (like mine), but
indicative of your experience.

Thanks in advance
