Deploying a PowerBuilder Window plug-in

Deploying a PowerBuilder Window plug-in

How can we distribute the PB deployment kit (Upgrade version) to our remote end-users? Also, do we have to distribute any drivers for Oracle, or can they reside on the server?

There are two different questions here:

1. The deployment of the PowerBuilder runtime still has to be done thesame way it’s currently done. I use SMS to distribute thefiles to each desktop. If you are dealing with clients outside of yourcontrol, you can give them a hyperlink to setup routine, which willdownload and install the files on their machines in much the same way asother browser plug-ins work.

2. The deployment of your database drivers depends on how yourapplication is designed. At work, we are building all of our new applicationsusing distributed PowerBuilder, which enables us to reduce the requirementof the database drivers from the desktop. If you are using directconnections from the client to the database, you will need to havethe database drivers at the desktop as well as the informationdescribing your databases.
