I have an application that currently runs on a UNIX box and is accessed
by 100+ users (spread across the country) who dial in on 14.4k buad modems.
The application is
currently a character based application that we would like to convert
to Powerbuilder. The database will need to continue to reside on the UNIX box.
The users need to continue to access the application from pc's across
14.4k modem connections.
My question is, does it make more sense to use the UNIX version of Powerbuilder
(when it becomes available) or the Windows version? I suppose my question
boils down to : does it make more sense to send/receive database records
across a 14.4k modem connection for the Windows Powerbuilder Application
or use the PC's as X-terminals across a 14.4k modem connection into the
Unix Powerbuilder Application.
Does anyone have experience with either approach and perhaps have some
comments and/or advice. Is perhaps Powerbuilder not suitable for this
