What is PowerBuilder?

Visual IDE

Provides a simple, intuitive, and visual-driven IDE to rapidly develop Windows desktop apps with either a client/server or cloud architecture.

.NET Interoperable

PowerScript, the desktop UI programming language, natively interoperates with .NET DLLs, and C# is supported for server-side programming.

Powerful Data Access

DataWindow technology makes data access and manipulation extremely productive, no matter developing desktop UI or C# REST APIs.

REST API-Enabled

DataWindows can be generated with a C# REST API architecture and secured by OAuth. Existing DataWindows can be converted with just a few lines of code.


Deploy as Desktop Cloud Apps with PowerServer, which installs applications to users through a Web browser over the Internet and updates automatically.
