yes, it is possible to move migrated application to the web.

Hope ur application is successfully migrated and is error free.

U need to get hold of some good books to help u with deploying to the web. There would be a few configurations u wud need to take care abt. Like configuring ur application server. EAServer compatible version. etc.

this shud be of help,

i googled for "Powerbuilder 11 tutorials" and came across some links and some torrent links for tutorial downloads, wonder how genuine those are. Give them a try.

You may also want to go to the newsgroups and talk to other who have moved to the web, there is a link to them from the PowerBuilder product page


Also, you should research Appeon, a product that takes PowerBuilder applications to the web.

Many PowerBuilder applications were written by different people, and many were not written with adherence to best practices, so there are lots of places where code may do several discrete tasks, and where things hat should be done in a service based class are coded behind a command button.  These are fairly easy to fix - and easiest to fix in PowerBuilder rather than rewriting in another language. Some of this will need to be done if you plan to move from a client/server environment to a .NET Webform deployment.

There are a lot of folks out there who can help you along the way, including techsupport staff at Sybase if you have a support plan, proserv if you want to hire outside help, or a very large community of users in the newsgroups and in the ISUG community.
