 "THE" Framework for Appeon PowerBuilder & PowerServer!

        Software Tool & Die Inc (STD) are very pleased to announce that they have just released a new maintenance version of their Integrated Foundation Class library framework 2019R2-1 (build 2019.2.1.132) exclusively for PowerBuilder 2017R3, PowerServer 2017 Web and PowerServer 2017 Mobile builds 1880!
     STD are also very excited as this release represents another significant enhancement to the Integrated framework that really further exemplifies the power of the Appeon PowerBuilder 2017R3 development environment! The new framework combined with the current PowerBuilder and/or PowerServer products, positions developers to take advantage of today's Agile and DevOps methodologies.

    The latest Integrated framework version contains the following updates and has been tested with MS-Windows 10 O/S (Spring Creator Edition), PB 2017R3 and the PowerServer 2017 builds #1880. Testing inside of PB included Win32 (both P-code & M-code) and Win64 (P-code) deployments. Testing inside of PowerServer Web & Mobile included latest Web Browsers, latest Apple Tablet / Smart Phone and Android Tablet / Smart Phone deployments.

Note: All the STD frameworks are free and can be downloaded from its STD Foundation Classes SourceForge project website..

     The OrderEntry example application and the Integrated Framework's Documentation has also been updated to the new Integrated Foundation class 2019R2-1 framework version. You can download the example application from here. Also, check out the online "getting started" video series to accelerate your assimilation of the best framework for PowerBuilder & PowerServer!
