PowerBuilder - Multi-threading Example!
Software Tool & Die Inc. (STD) are please to announce the release of an updated example PowerBuilder application that utilizes the STD Integrated Framework to implement multi-threading! The multi-threading feature is PB has been around since version 5.0 of PowerBuilder when the Distributed PB feature was first introduced. However, it is not a well documented and known feature of the development tool. The STD example even goes further in that it allows the application to utilize the vast resources exposed by the STD Integrated framework to even take multi-threading to a much higher functional level.
The updated Multi-thread example application now utilizes the STD Integrated Framework (version 2018.2.0.97 released on 2018-03-11) and the newest Appeon PB2017R2 release (build 1769.
Note: The STD Framework is the only PB framework in existence that is thread aware and multi-thread safe!
The Integrated framework allows each thread to be monitored by the frameworks performance dialogue, write to the O/S Console, log a message in the main tread's application log, share DBMS access, send messages back & forth between threads or between the main thread and its sub-threads, introspect the O/S, etc - just to name a few interesting aspects. Messages may also now be written to the MS-Windows Event Log and Debug logs as well from each sub-thread!
The STD multi-threaded PowerBuilder example application can now be downloaded from the SourceForge website. Please click here to download & enjoy!
