We recently got PowerBuilder 2017. We migrated a PowerBuilder 12.6 Windows application using the PB2017 IDE. We then built the application and deployed it onto one of our test machines [running Windows 10]. We have found noticeable differences in the compiled application performance between the new PB2017 version and one of our previous PB12.6 versions. Most noticeable are screen launches which are instantaneous with the PB 12.6 but take 5 to 10 seconds with the PB2017. 

I am curious if anyone else has observed slower performance with PB2017

I appreciate any comments or suggestions.

Thanks

Hi Bill;

  I have not noticed any performance issues with my R3 vs 12.6 based Apps. However, I am running on W10 Spring Creator edition on real  PC's (AMD based CPUs); high end NVIDA graphics cards; and using SA & SS DBMS.

  Can you tell us more about your environment?

Thanks ... Chris

Hi BIll;

You took the words right out of my mouth! That was going to be my next question. The RTE Control and RTE DW are now fueled by a new 3rd party (TE) control under-the-hood in PB2017. Appeon have heard of definite performance issues under Citrix with this new control and as such, have been making "tweaks" to the surrounding code in R2 & R3 releases. At the moment, any delays with RTE Controls and DWO's could certainly be the TE control.

I just checked the ticket system and your problem seems to be related to ticket #582. Engineering does not seem to have a fix for this at the moment. FYI: https://www.appeon.com/support/documents/appeon_online_help/pb2017/release_bulletin_for_pb/ch02s04.html

The great news is that the PB2018 release will also include the old TX Control that was present in PB 12.x. You will have the ability to choose either the new TE Control or the TX Control when you build & run your PB Apps. The returning TX Control will be the same version as was in PB 12.6.

HTH

Regards ... Chris

Chris,

Thanks for the information and your reply. I did not get a notification that you had replied so I just read this today [9/27].

The Powers That Be here panicked and decided to go back to PowerBuilder 12.6 since our upcoming release date is closing in. Their confidence in PB2017 is not too high right now. This will give us more time to play around with PB2017, hopefully R3, before our next release.

Thanks.

Update:

We moved our project back to PB12.6 and the compiled application performance is back to normal. There is definitely a difference between PB2017 and PB12.6 performance with our application.

There are no known performance issues with window opening.  Have you tried to test both PB 12.6 and PB 2017 side-by-side on a few different machines so that you have a controlled comparison and also you are sure it is not machine-specific?

Can you open a support ticket and provide a reproducible test case?  We have both PB 12.6 and 2017 so we could do side-by-side analysis in our labs.  Support ticket can be opened here: https://www.appeon.com/standardsupport/

Hello Armeen,'

We have done numerous side by side tests and our PB 12.6 compiled application consistently has no delay and while the PB2017 compiled application has delays. The test cases are as simple as that.

Thanks

Please open a support ticket. To best of my knowledge nobody else has this problem.
