I've read up on appeon and EAserver. And it seems like they
both do the same thing(move an exisiting powerbuilder app to
the web). I know that I need EA server in order to get an
appeon app to run but why do I need appeon if EA server can
run powerbuilder apps on the web?

You do not understand what the two products are.

Appeon is a way to build web applications. It can take a PB application and
turn it into a web application. Appeon is built on top of EAServer.

EAServer is an application server it has nothing to do with moving PB to the
web. A developer can develop components and access those components from
many front ends. Components can be developed in PB, Java or C++. You can
even import ActiveX into the app server. If you want those components
accessed from a web site you have to code the call to the component from
your web site. This maybe JSP, ASP etc.

Does that help?

OK so EA server is similar to Apache?

Apache is a web server.

EAServer does have a http web server. The J2EE spec covers http web server
as well as EJB components.

Not all web servers can host EJB or CORBA components. It's really two
processes. EAServer has web server (HTTP) and component server (CORBA/EJB).

EAServer supports PB. No other app server support PB. Coming soon you will
be able to deploy your PB components to other EJB servers. Then they can be
accessed by JSP or other processes.

Hi Weston GoodWin,
 
 
EAServer and the future PowerBuilder Plug-ins for other J2EE App Servers are "Partial PowerBuilder Servers" as they support only business-logic Non-Visual Objects (NVOs) with DataStores, which are only a small fraction percentage-wise of almost all existing PowerBuilder applications.
 
While Appeon is the "Complete PowerBuilder Server" and runs practically all PowerBuilder objects including all types of Windows as well as DataWindows, DataStores, Menus/Toolbars, Structures, Visual User Objects, and NVOs including all of the PowerScript code associated with all of those objects, etc.
 
Because Appeon is the "Complete PowerBuilder Server", it will take many times less development time to deploy existing applications to the web compared with EAServer and approximately 3 times less development time using it to build new applications compared with EAServer, and all that with a far richer GUI. Please note that with EAServer alone, you will have to rewrite practically all user interface business logic and the entire navigation scheme in a much more limited graphical user interface (GUI) using HTML & JavaScript whereas Appeon gives you all of this Rich GUI/Ajax-like application user interface immediately. Also, Appeon provides everything that EAServer provides (PB, J2EE, C++, Web Services, etc.) but far more support for PowerBuilder features.

Regards
Sally Li
