Using PowerBuilder Components in Sybase WorkSpace 1.5

RAD developers become service developers process developers

10.  Create an endpoint.

11.  All of the connection properties should be populated via the WSDL of the PowerBuilder Web Service

12.  Select Finish.

13.  The new SOAP Service will now appear in the Service Explorer and can be used in the Orchestration painter.

Now the PB component is available as a SOAP Service and can be used in Sybase WorkSpace Orchestration, where it can interact with other components. These components can be other database, Java, SOAP, etc. services. Now that's pretty cool stuff! You as a RAD developer using PB and Sybase WorkSpace are now a service developer and can become a business process developer.

OK, guys, so I've ignited the blue touch paper and I'm retreating a few yards. You now have the basic steps to take your existing PowerBuilder Components to a Service Oriented Architecture and orchestrate them with other services in Sybase WorkSpace... 3..2..1.. blast off
