At a Glance: PowerBuilder
Initially released in 1992, PowerBuilder is an object-oriented integrated development environment (IDE). If you’re looking to build powerful business applications or need help maintaining an ASP.NET web server, a PowerBuilder developer can get your project started.
PowerBuilder developers leverage the PowerBuilder Foundation Classes (PFC) code framework to build, run, and maintain server-side database systems, aided by the PowerScript scripting language. They can use PowerBuilder’s native Datawindow, a visual SQL painter, to manage relational database operations like joins and unions, or create, edit, and display data from a database. The Datawindow can also assist a PowerBuilder programmer in reconciling the differences between multiple database management systems from different vendors into a single user interface. PowerBuilder is used primarily to support enterprise software stacks and business server-side technologies. It works well with Java and Microsoft Visual Studio, and third-party tools such as Appeon, Visual Expert, and Enable (a multilingual interface) enhance its capabilities. PowerBuilder developers on Upwork can provide remote technical support, relational database management, and integration solutions to your .NET web projects, databases, and internal servers.
