February 2006: .NET Worldwide Survey 2006
Further to its efforts to develop .NET, Microsoft has launched the 2005
version of Visual Studio.
Reactions are divided and most companies' choices are too. A worldwide
survey is currently looking into this;
What is the percentage of companies moving to Visual Studio 2005?
Which .NET languages are used? and for what platform?
What type of application is currently developed with .Net

For instance, you can ask for all triggers, cursors, functions and procedure
including SQL statements using a DB column, as well as a %rowtype definition.
Visual Expert can list them to help you evaluate the consequences of
In case you developed PowerBuilder applications any PowerBuilder-to-PL/SQL
reference is also taken into account.
July 2004: Visual Basic Worldwide Survey First Results
If you read the trade press, you might think that everyone is migrating
But many projects still use VB5 or VB6!
What about you? Which language do you use? Do you consider migrating to
.NET? What is the general trend of today's VB projects?
To answer these questions, we are carrying out a survey on the use of
Close to 2000 people have already taken part in this survey.

Bill GREEN - TeamSybase:
"The tool should be a must-have on any software consultant’s list,
and can provide a significant benefit to any user of the product regardless
of the developers experience level with PowerBuilder."

A powerful tool to become familiar with a new application!
George MIKHAILOVSKY: "More you work with
the Visual Expert - more you understand how convenient it is. I cannot
remember so powerful tool that allows a user to become familiar with
a new application in literally in a few hours."

A few minutes to constructively review the application architecture, regardless
"It takes only a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the Visual
Expert interface and even less to constructively review the application
architecture, regardless its size. I would strongly recommend you try
Visual Expert out. I am positive that you will find out that this tool
is missing from your software library!"

Using the PB 8 Web DataWindow in ASP (new technical article)
Are you tired of data listed in tables on your website?
"Do you want to put those DataWindows you have spent so much time
developing for your client-server application onto your website ? If you
have a Microsoft Server with IIS 5.0 running, it really is a simple project."
Bill Green - Team Sybase:
Given our propensity as developers to avoid any task that takes too much
time to perform, avoid documentation at almost any cost, and make changes
to applications relying on our testing practices to determine the impact,
it's my opinion that this tool would go a long way to making many of our
lives easier, and our jobs less risky.
It will help to reduce the risk of change to any application, and provides
a mechanism to provide accurate and up-to-date documentation of our applications.
The tool should be a must-have on any software consultant's list, and
can provide a significant benefit to any user of the product regardless
of the developers experience level with PowerBuilder."
