PowerBuilder to provide more muscle

Powersoft shipped an Internet-enabled version of its PowerBuilder 5.0.

Powersoft today shipped the first Internet-enabled version of its PowerBuilder 5.0 for Windows for building client-server and component-based applications.

PowerBuilder 5.0 adds support for application partitioning so that developers can decide which parts of applications should reside on the client or on the server systems to best exploit processing power. Application components can then be connected through local area networks or the Internet for building intranet applications.

The tool is available in a $295 stand-alone Desktop version, a $1,295 Professional edition for small workgroups, and a $2,995 Enterprise version for supporting large development teams. All three run on Windows 95, Windows NT, and Windows 3.1.

The company also said it has delivered beta versions of PowerBuilder 5.0 on Unix and Macintosh operating systems, with final releases to ship in the second half of the year.

Separately, Powersoft also released a new version of its InfoMaker data reporting and analysis tool. InfoMaker 5.0 for Windows adds support for OLE 2.0 and additional databases. It is priced at $195 on Windows 95, Windows NT, and Windows 3.1. A Macintosh version is expected to ship in the second half of the year.
