About deploying applications
PowerBuilder lets you develop and deploy applications for many
Traditional client/server applications
The primary focus of this chapter is on building an executable
file and packaging a single- or two-tier application for deployment.
It helps you decide whether to use compiled code or pseudocode,
whether to use dynamic libraries (PBDs or DLLs) and how to organize
them, and whether to deploy resources such as bitmaps and icons
separately or use a PowerBuilder Resource file (PBR).
Internet and distributed applications
When you build a client in a multitier application or a distributed PowerBuilder server
application, you need to make the same choices as you do for a traditional
client/server application. If you’re building
Jaguar or MTS components or using the PowerBuilder window plugin or
the PowerBuilder window ActiveX, you need to know about PowerBuilder dynamic
libraries (PBDs) and PBRs.
Additional considerations for deploying Internet or distributed PowerBuilder applications
are described in other chapters or books:
