I am with a PB 8.03 development team.

Our application is a a very fat-client 2-tier client-server app which
currently runs on client PCs connecting to Oracle/MS SQL databases on the
LAN/WAN.

We are interested in providing limited Web features for some of our clients,
mainly inquiry but maybe some interactive forms. Initially on their Intranet
but conceivably on the Internet.

Appeon seems to be something we should look at.

The data I have downloaded so far about Appeon (Solution Brief and FAQs)
talks about Appeon Developer, Appeon Server and Appeon Enterprise Manager. I
understand that Appeon Developer is the component we will need to develop,
test and deploy the app and costs $99. What is Appeon Server and Appeon
Enterprise Manager? These would probably be the Server-side components that
provide connectivity to the DB/our app? What do they cost? Do we need both?
How does EAServer fit into the picture? I hope it is not an essential part
of the system because our clients are not too keen on hosting another server
on their web site(s).

Is there such a thing as a free evaluation copy and if so how can I get one?

TIA

Larry Peters

Larry:

Good questions.

Appeon is a "black box" solution that moves a client/server application directly
to the web. If you have a working client/server application that you want to
"webify", this is one good way you can go. Appeon will web-enable an entire
application, so if you want only parts of your application you need to create a
new client/server base with just those parts (which is usually pretty easy,
cutting something apart is much easier than building.)

The Appeon developer is just a license that allows you to convert your existing
application, and do all of the necessary recoding (because nothing is perfect)
and testing of your application. Once you go in to production, you will need
either Appeon Server or Appeon Enterprise Manager. These are both "production"
licenses. The idea is that trying out Appeon and testing it shouldn't cost a
lot, the only time you pay is for a production system.

The difference between Server and Enterprise Manager is based on your user load,
among other factors. We can help you decide which is best for you, once you get
near production.

To contact our sales group to get any of these licenses, just give us a call at
1-800-8-SYBASE.

plannin gto purchase a devloper license with my own money
and convert one of our PB apps to convince my boss the beauty of using
Appeon instead of using EAserver JSP datawinodw.

Thanks.

There is an excellent presentation by Rex Geissler of Sybase that should
give you a good introduction to Appeon:
http://download.sybase.com/presentation/isug_presentations/sybs041304.wmv

In summary, Appeon is a Web deployment option for PowerBuilder. You can use
Appeon to build new standard n-tier Web applications, with at least 4~5
times fewer lines of code than .NET/J2EE development. You can also use
Appeon to convert existing fat client PB (client/server) applications into
standard n-tier Web applications. All application development, maintenance
and upgrade are done within the PB IDE. The rich GUI of the client/server
application is preserved on the Web using only standard technologies (HTML,
XML, JavaScript), and Appeon does not require any client-side software, such
as ActiveX or Java Applets.

Appeon for PowerBuilder is composed of two key components, Appeon Developer
and Appeon Server, both of which are required. Appeon Developer plugs into
PowerBuilder forming the new PowerBuilder-based Web development IDE. Appeon
Server provides the runtime services needed to run the deployed Web
application. Appeon Server leverages Sybase EAServer, providing
PowerBuilder component and DataWindow support, J2EE component support, and
Web Services support. Appeon Enterprise Manager (AEM) is just an
administration utility or interface for managing the Appeon Server that is
bundled with the Appeon Server.

There are several editions of Appeon for PowerBuilder available for
purchase. The production edition is what you use to go into production.
The development and testing edition is what you use to develop and test your
Web application. Your Sybase account rep can go over pricing with you based
on your situation and usage level.
