I have been spending a lot of time at a particular client of mine lately
addressing stability and performance issues on a particular Web-based
PowerBuilder application. After identifying many issues with the application
system, I'm pleased to report an exponential gain in both the stability and,
in particular, identified performance.
This started me thinking about the various projects that I have been working

When you start to develop mission-critical business applications using your
favorite development tool, you should seriously consider iAnywhere's SQL
Anywhere database management system to support the data management
requirements. For this article I will focus on SQL Anywhere version 10 and
PowerBuilder 11.0. Some of the features reviewed may not be supported in
previous versions of these software releases. Where possible, I will try and
identify features that are only supported in the current release and if there
are any alternatives in previous versions.
