STD Integrated Framework - PowerBuilder 2019 TCP/IP Sockets

** Hot News **

TCP/IP Programming

Updated Socket Application Example for PowerBuilder 2019!

        Software Tool & Die Inc. today are very pleased to announce a brand new MS-Windows Socket (2019R2) example application built with the latest STD Integrated Framework (2019R2). This latest release of the Socket application is also built using the latest Appeon PowerBuilder 2019 IDE and will also work with the upcoming PowerBuilder 2019 R2 Beta test version as well.

Client Application - Ready to send DW object & buffers
         The STD Socket example application demonstrates a significant enhancement to the the PB developer's toolbox! The Socket example showcases the TCP/IP features in the STD Integrated Framework and more importantly returns the power of Distributed PowerBuilder back to the application developer. The TCP/IP socket support in the STD Frameworks is based on the work by Tom Cervenka's Sockets objects (written in pure PB, dating back to the PowerSoft days) that utilizes MS-Windows socket API's for FTP'ing files between servers and/or peer-to-peer communications.

Server Application - Receiving DWO and buffers from sender
    In addition, the updated STD Socket example will also now work with PowerServer 2019 as well when deployed as a Web Application!

    You can download the updated STD Socket example application from the STD Framework's website by clicking here to get more productive in peer-to-peer communications with PowerBuilder! Note that a new "Archive" sub-folder has also been added to this location as well. This folder contains any previous versions of the socket example application!
