Code Modernization: Focus on Powerbuilder

PowerBuilder, with its ever-popular DataWindow IDE feature, and strong client-server orientation, is still an important coding mechanism.  It has fallen out of favor in recent years, however, and its codebase has been neglected and moved to Sybase, then to SAP, and now to Appeon. Due to a few missteps along the way, and a late.NET capability addition, many companies are choosing to discontinue their use of PB and move to newer platforms.
