A thick client Powerbuilder 2019 application using an Oracle 12g database and client consisting of several modules is being tested for feasibility to run as a Web application using PowerServer 2020. However the first module which connects to the database and presents a login page to the user is not being displayed when running.
There were 5 "Must Modify" unsupported features that have been worked around. The deployment showed no errors. Run loads a blank web page though. There are no errors. All template and library files load OK just the resulting page is empty of content.
This (and the other) modules use an ini file that contains various settings for use by the application. Let's call it Jane.ini. This ini file is writable and the application modules will record variable data in it such as the window positions and size and site locations. I believe ini files are deployed to the web server as xml files. I think it is the ini file that is maybe the issue here. The ini is referenced in the PowerServer deployment profile. There are some xmls in the Config folder for the application on the web server (e.g. pb.xml, <appname>.xml) but none are named as per the writable ini file i.e. there is no Jane.xml.
Can PowerServer web apps write to deployed ini files? Is this the likely issue? Can you suggest any logs or diagnostics I can run to determine the issue here?
