at 12:00pm EST (New York) / 18:00 CET (Paris)

How to separate security logic from business logic

Most existing PowerBuilder applications are large, complex and somewhat stable.
When end-users request a change in application permission features, it involves a costly development cycle (design, impact analysis, modification, testing, deployment...).
What if you could make those changes without touching your code or redeploying the application?
In this presentation you will see:
• How to externalize security rules in Visual Guard
• How to create new permissions without changing the application currently in production
• How to grant these permissions at any time, to login/password accounts or Windows Accounts

Presenter: Christophe Dufourmantelle
