Hi,
I want to connect my powerbuilder application to PostGres, Is there any native PostGres driver or should I connect via ODBC/JDBC driver?
Right now, I could connect the database painter using ODBC driver.

Regards.

AFAIK, currently ODBC is the only way available to connect PostgreSQL.

For PowerBuilder client/server projects you must use ODBC to connect to Postgres.  For PowerBuilder cloud projects (i.e. PowerServer or .NET DataStore) you would use the native .NET provider, which is packaged in the PowerServer/.NET DataStore library.

Now, that being said... maybe for Postgresql it won't work and the only way to go is ODBC. That's another thing.

OK, I will revise my answer. But for sure when doing client/server development against Postgres we only put the effort to test and support ODBC. https://docs.appeon.com/pb2017r2/whats_new/ch01s03.html

Thanks, guys, for the feedback and information. This "simple" project brought on my (who else) management has been difficult from the start. *Sigh*

Is there any documentation, preferably with examples,on how to do this?

Thanks,
