Hello everyone...

Along with saying hello, I want to check if anyone knows the following:

1) I understand that SOAP is obsolete in power builder 2019. How should it be implemented?

2) If I migrate from power builder 9 to version 2019. Will the application with SOAP work the same?

3) What happens to the application if after migrating it I run it on 64 bit windows. Will run fine
or do you need a component?

Please if someone can give information, it will be appreciated. thanks

Best regards.

Here are my responses to your 3 questions...

  1. I recommend using the new HTTPClient as your SOAP client and carefully read this tech article.
  2. Yes, the old EasySoap and .NET SOAP clients are still in the product.  But you should switch off whenever you have time to make the code changes because obsolete features are not being enhanced.
  3. If you want to migrate to 64-bit, you should to carefully go through this conversion video

Here is my recommendation how you should move forward...

  • First just upgrade to PB 2019 according to this migration video and this migration guide.
  • Only after you successfully do this, then proceed to replace obsolete SOAP client with HTTPClient.
  • After SOAP is taken care of, then make other necessary code changes to convert to 64-bit.
  • Finally, start adding all the great new features to your app, such as UI Themes.

So long story short, first crawl before you try to walk, then walk before you try to run.

Best regards,
