TopwizWeb is a plug-in for IIS that allows you to run PowerBuilder code directly from PBL or PBD files. There is no need to learn C# or perform a complex conversion process. TopwizWeb supports PowerBuilder 10.5 and higher. For 12.6 and higher, 64-bit is supported.

TopwizWeb Server Pages

TopwizWeb Server Pages are HTML files that contain links to functions in a PowerBuilder object. The object functions can return a string which is added to the HTML as it is streamed back to the browser. You can design your HTML in your favorite HTML editor/designer application or even have a web design specialist do it for you. This feature works very much like .Net Web Pages.

EAServer Replacement / Two-Tier

TopwizWeb provides a replacement for EAServer that also can be used for new two-tier development. Two custom PowerBuilder IDE wizards are provided. One generates proxy objects that work very much like EAServer proxy objects. A second IDE wizard is used to deploy components to the server. Because the remote function calls are performed over HTTP/HTTPS, the client and server can be located anywhere in the world.

Web Services / AJAX

TopwizWeb allows you to easily create web services that return text or binary data. The web services can be called by a desktop application or by a web page written in any language that can make AJAX style background calls. There is no need to code for complex XML request strings because you control both ends of the process using simple PowerScript.

PDF Reports

Starting with PowerBuilder 2017, you can run DataWindow reports, generate a PDF in memory, and stream it back to the browser or save it to the database. A web page written in any other language could call out to the TopwizWeb component passing the report parameters.
