I'm testing the PB 2021 Beta taking a PB 2019 R2 project as a reference, the project is deployed on PowerServer Web 2019 and it uses Appeon FileServer. After updating my code to the new version and deploying it using CloudApp, when I try to do the part that uses the FileServer in the app(checking if a file exists, and then downloading it), it does nothing, it not even shows an error. Is PB 2021 compatible with Appeon FileServer?


Thank you.

Hi Claudio, 

With PowerServer 2021, you can use the standard ASP.NET Core technique to implement the file server function, such as what’s explained at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/aspnet/core/mvc/models/file-uploads?view=aspnetcore-5.0.

Best regards, Julie

Hi Claudio;

  PowerServer 2021 unlike PS2019 or PS2020 does not have a built-in FTP feature like its predecessors.

  Instead, I would look at a solution like Roland's free FTP implementation for PB Apps ...


If you need a more complex FTP solution, then this is another great bolt-on for PB Apps...



Regards ... Chris

Adding to what Chris said, PowerServer 2021 supports ~100% of PowerBuilder features so basically anything you can do in client/server you can now do in the Cloud. We no longer need to resort to workarounds, like the previous file server, the appeon_workarounds.pbl, etc.
