The mobile enterprise application development market is continuously evolving. A short time ago, developers were focused on building wireless Internet applications using technologies such as WAP. Over the past couple of years, the preferred architecture for enterprise applications has shifted toward a smart client model where the mobile application incorporates persistent data storage and synchronization. To address the changing application model, new development tools, including PenRight! MobileBuilder, AppForge MobileVB, and a number of Java tools came to market. These tools deliver a rich slate of components and strong database access, but still don't address a key aspect of smart client development - data synchronization (see "Synchronization Is the Key" sidebar). Pocket PowerBuilder, a new mobile application development tool, supports all aspects of smart client... (more)

With a traditional client/server PowerBuilder application you can connect directly to the enterprise database. With Pocket PowerBuilder your mobile application communicates directly with a local database that then uses database synchronization to exchange data with enterprise databases. This application model shift is perhaps the most significant change that PowerBuilder developers will... (more)
