As I mentioned in my earlier post Sybase’s merger with SAP seems to be complete. Since SAP took over, there was some uncertainty in the developer community about their interest in keeping the tool alive. From various posts online so far, SAP seems to committed to developing PB further.
If you haven’t already noticed, Powerbuilder (PB) is definitely making a come back (among those who left it in the late 90’s and the new developers trying to explore PB). I see lot more interest in the tool and many more blogs like this are coming up on the subject. This is almost like before Sybase took over in late 90’s. While Sybase kept the product alive, there was a dormant period where the product lost community following. With SAP in the picture, there seems to be renewed interest in PB. They are constantly adding resources related to PB on their site.
If you are new to PB, these videos may be helpful. I will be posting more links here later.
