4-0 out of 5 stars Great resource, lousy starting point.
If you are new to object-oriented programming, start with a vanilla C++ book, such as Jesse Liberty's C++ in 21 Days. With that under your belt, you can easily discern what is Powerbuilder and what is object-orientation in the Powerbuilder environment. This book walks through every feature in Powerbuilder, generally from the simplest or most basic, to the more obscure or less frequently used.
2-0 out of 5 stars Book lacks basic examples!
IF you want to own a book that looks impresive and does little to help youunderstand about Powerbuilder, then this is the book for you. There is moreusless information in the book then one can create an object class for.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good reference book
This is not a quick guide to PowerBuilder but it's a really best reference book out there.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Must have for beginners
Of all the books for PowerBuilder I have used this is the greatest!I learned PowerBuilder in depth in less than a week with this book.While I have an extensive programming background, it would not be necessary to make use of this book.Well written and documented.If you are using PB 6.5 there are some minor differences between what is in the book and how your PB will work.The book was written with a prerelease version of PB 6.Hats off to the authors, this is one of the best books I have bought in a long time!

5-0 out of 5 stars I thgought it was great !!!
I'm a VB, ASP and Coldfusion programmer. I've read the "Using Powerbuilder 6" and the "Powerbuilder Unleashed" series. The "Powerbuilder Unleashed" is a good reference for the intermediate and the "Using Powerbuilder 6" is worthless!! After purchasing this book I was up and coding, creating a multi-form application in a week. If you're a beginner and want a solid foundation this is the book.

1-0 out of 5 stars This book was a waste of money.
This book was full of gaps in the tutorials. I would be on a complete roll and then be stuck with the worthless index. This book is only good if you have someonewho knows PowerBuilder near buy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing book/Handy reference
For newbiew like me, this is the bible for entering the n-tier world with EAServer. Gives me a very good comparison with other options too.1-0 out of 5 stars Rehash of old information
I have worked with PB since its inception about 12 years ago.During that time I have purchased everything written about it.This is the worst effort put into print.It is simply a rehash of articles on xml, soap, and internet theory.There is no relationship between PB 9 and this text other than the mention of it by the authors.Save yourself some money and wait or something that actually shows you how to develop internet and distributed applications -- this one does not!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Presents the new capabilities of PowerBuilder 9
PowerBuilder 9: Internet and Distributed Application Development is the collaborative effort of computer expters William Green and John D. Olson and comprehensively presents the new capabilities of PowerBuilder 9 along with the architecture and patterns required to create distributed systems in PowerBuilder. Recommended for intermediate to advanced users, PowerBuilder 9: Internet and Distributed Application Development deftly addresses development Web and Intranet-based systems, including Web Services, Portals, Application-Servers, XML, and Mobile Access. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Overall the content was very good but too many errors
The content of the book was good.Overall I am pleased with it.The one flaw I have with the book is the number of errors in it.These errors range from spelling errors to grammatical errors to mislabeling of figures(charts) to errors in some of the coding examples.I would have expectedthe book to have been edited a little better than it was.I would haverecommended the book but the publishers need to do a better job editingfuture editions.

5-0 out of 5 stars very good book
Derek Ball brings PB to developers in a comprehensive, straight-forwardmanner. The well-done organization, format, and figures make this guideworth reading from beginning to end. The Developer's Tips and appendicesare truly useful tools and compliment the main text. Also, this guide'sthorough index makes it an excellent reference. The only reason I didn'tgive it a ten is that it's weak on external DLL information, but then so isevery other PB book I've found. Of the current PB books available this is,by far, the one I use most.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great resource book!
I found this to be an excellent book covering many intermediate and advanced topics.This book is definitely not for beginners unless you already have programming experience using Visual Basic, etc.The coverage of changes in PowerBuilder 6.0 with it's migration issue warnings is very helpful. I'm looking forward to using items mentioned in our applications. This will definitely be one of my well used books. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Use the PB online Help instead!
I was hoping this book would shed some light on more advance features of the datawindow. Instead, it is basically a re-hash of the online help file. Nothing new here. Brooks could have went into more more depth regarding the more non-intuitive datawindow presentation styles such as cross-tabs and graphs...but he didn't. Everytime I've reached for the book as a referrence, I've had to look elsewhere.

5-0 out of 5 stars A nice desktop datawindow reference
This book has saved me hours of programming several times during my datawindow development and exposed some little known tips/tricks/techniques. Also, it is a good source to revise our skills.2-0 out of 5 stars Definitive of What?
I have to thank those that wrote an honest review of the material covered in this book and must agree that many of these reviews were written by folks close to the author. After reading the mixed reviews I elected not to invest in this title and instead to borrow a copy from a fellow programer while on a contract. Though I did find a few things in the material I did not know, the vast majority of this book is basic information that anyone who has spent any time programming in PowerBuilder would already know. Since the author did have such a web presence (I am not surprised to see he has all but disappeared) and reputation I really had expected more and would have been very disgruntled had I spent money on this product. Instead spend your money on PowerBuilder Unleashed by Simon Henry and if you really can't stand to use the online documentation that shows all of the information contained in this book and want some bathroom reading material, pick up a used copy of this. At least then when you pick out the bits and pieces you might actually use you can sell it used yourself and will not feel cheated. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars a total flop
Mr. Brooks is possibly the worst author I have ever read. The help files really were more helpful than this book was. He ought to go move to the Hedonism resort he reviewed a book on because the programing world could not possibly miss him if his wok is on the level of his writing.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hard to read.
This is the worst book I have ever read. I put my nose through the thick book and learn nothing. Later I read a thin book from Powersoft PFC training. I learn a lot from each page of it.2-0 out of 5 stars Not useful for PFC 6+
This reference book restates most of the reference material available in the PFC online books. The reason for this (as stated in the book) is that back in PB 5 days, the online books were only available if the CD was in your drive. As of PB 6, the books can be installed on a hard drive. The PFC 6 features are only glanced at. The focus is on PFC 5 features. So if you're using PB 5/PFC 5, this book is great. Otherwise, it's not useful at all. I returned this book. ... Read more

This book was written in 1994. The information is very out dated.It's a book written from a person with mainframe experience wanting to learn about client server.Some of the information is still correct, but for instance, the author claims that in 5 years (by 1999) there will be no mainframe computers and everything will be client server!Not the book for me. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to PowerBuilder
This book is a great help to anyone starting out in PowerBuilder. This book covers a lot of PowerBuilder fundamentals as well as basic programming techniques. It is a really useful guide to working in PowerBuilder if youare still new to it, and it is much easier to find answers here than in thepowersoft newsgroups. The style is quite readable and a lot more human thana lot of other tech-oriented books. Definitely worth checking out- althoughprobably not useful if you are already a guru.

5-0 out of 5 stars Valuable Reference for PowerBuilder developers
This book is a perfect desktop reference for novice and experienced PowerBuilder programmers alike.Many times I've spent hours trying to do something or understand something in Powerbuilder.Because PowerBuilder issuch a big complex tool, sometimes it's very difficult or impossible tofind a solution in PB's online help and documentation.Many times I canonly vaguely remember what magazine or user group provided a cleversolution to a head scratching problem.So, I was glad to get my hands onMr. Hatton's book which is filled with nuggets of information that willsave PB programmers a lot of time.I've been a full time PB programmer for3 years and I keep this book right next to my computer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Quick PB6 reference
As a programmer who started with PB5, had to do a project in PB4, and is currently developing in PB6, I found this book to be a great referential starting point. Without having to pore through the massive, sometimessilly, Sybase support pages, and every PB developer's website (usuallyhaving the same 2 or 3 tips as all the rest, and never updated) this is agreat way to have a lot of commonly asked questions answered immediately. Ranging from strange bugs (i.e. the amazing shrinking detail band) in PB,to PowerBuilder-specific constructs, to clean coding advice in general,this book answers a lot of questions that you need to know, but might be alittle embarrassed to ask. Plus, you never get flamed for asking abeginners' question! While it isn't a PowerBuilder be-all end-all, it is afriendly and insightful starting point for someone who would like to breakfree from using only MS dev tools. A good read, too. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good But....
This book explains the subject matter well to the beginners. However, I was very disappointed in the way examples are handled. Actual code examples are very sparse. Most of the time, the author gives few lines of code and explains what you should do next. Secondly, I found the accompanying CDof little use. To begin with, the Source code could not run on PB 5.0. Itrequires an earlier version. All in all the book gives a good introductionto the subject, but is not hands on.

2-0 out of 5 stars TEACH Yourself PowerBuilder 5.0
Parts of the book are really good.But I have found errors in the code and steps were left out while descriping the process of adding controls to windows. All of this leaves you confussed.The author should have worked the code just as he is explanning it to ensure that it works correctly.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointed!
The author covers just about everything in PowerBuilder but that's about it. Lots of typos and his explanations aren't clear or confusing in his topics and examples. Seems like the author rushed to get the book printed or didn't care enough to do a good job. I'll need to buy another PowerBuilder book to supplement what's lacking in this book.

If you're a programmer new at Powerbuilder 5. This books is for you. Be warned that there are errors associated with this book.Plenty of typos causing compilation errors.If you're an optimistic coder, this book will be benificial as you find typo problems, fix them, red-line the errors in the book and learn along the way.If you're a pessimist, you'll SCREAM!!! ...

Instead of wasting your time having you build applications you'll never use, this book gets you into real Powerbuilder code.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good - but outdated...
This book was written for PowerBuilder 7 (now 7.03) and Jaguar CTS 3.0 (now Sybase Enterprise Application Server 3.6.1.08). While PowerBuilder hasn't changed much EAS most *certainly* has. When Jaguar 3.0 came out there was no database persistence standard for the Java platform, EJB was barely a spec (v 0.4), and a lot of things that we take very much for granted in the J2EE Specification simply didn't exist. Also, Jaguar 3.0 was a much 'clunkier' system to administer than that newer 3.6.1 release that Sybase has done. While many of the concepts discussed in this book from the PowerBuilder side are still applicable, some of the screen shots and processes are dated on the Jaguar side. Still, the book represents a good history lesson if nothing else. Being that this is the *only* book on the subject of using PowerBuilder as a front end to your Jaguar/EAS server-side code I'd say get it. But it's quickly become in *dire* need of a revamp. Are you listening, Mr. Barlotta??

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for PB developers moving ahead with EAServer
This book can get you started just in the way you would like to. Mike understands what PB developers need to get started with Web development and Jaguar. Although EAS versions have changed, but the basic concepts suc as "stateless/stateful, instance pooling, transaction support, connection, etc" remain the same. This book is not for Java with EAServer - this is PowerBuilder with EAServer - as the name suggests.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on the Subject (but got sacked after I read it)
The site was going to use PB7 and Jaguar - exciting!I ordered the book, read it, used the many fantastic code bits to get an n-tier PB7 app up and running.Fantastic book.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book!
This book teaches not only basic concepts of PowerBuilder, but also how to create real world applications.The authors are very serious on the quality of this book, one of the authors responded my e-mail about this book.I hope to see more books from these authors.

5-0 out of 5 stars The book which will teach you from a to Z
Throughout many books available for PowerBuilder today this one is more deeply and carefully covers all the details you will need from day to day operations.I've red over dozens of books and I think that this one theonly one that is not tells you where to click, but teaches you how to buildan application and logical design.I do hope that authors of the book (B.Smith and G. Schaad) will issue a newer version that will cover featuresimplemented with PB 6.x and PB 7

5-0 out of 5 stars Exemplary treatment of a difficult subject
This is by far the easiest-to-read and -understand book I have read on PowerBuilder.It is very well edited also, with no grammatical or spelling errors that I could discern.This is a far better book on PowerBuilderthan I have read by any other author.Bravo! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Junk
Picked up this book in the clearance bin at a technical bookstore close to my work place for Five Dollars. I thought I had an incredible bargain in my hands until I read the book. What a piece of trash! I do a lot of Objectoriented coding with Powerbuilder on WindowsNT4.0. I was interested in thedesign patterns & OO programming techniques that the authors say thatthey are covering in the book in the preface. I have already read thePatterns book by Erich Gamma/John Vlissides and I was interested in how theauthors might have applied those techniques with PowerBuilder. It was amajor disappointment for me when I discovered that the authors had no clueof OO programming and a very bad understanding of Patterns in particular.They seem to know enough about Powerbuilder, but they are totally ignorantof OOP and patterns.1-0 out of 5 stars WROX - Shame on you
How WROX decided to push this terrible piece of writing on their readers is beyond my comprehension. I am a senior Sybase/PowerBuilder programmer, and I felt like laughing at the inaccuracies and inconsistencies that Iconstantly encountered in this stinker. When I read the reviews at Amazonthat this is a great OOP/Design Patterns book, I was intrigued enough tosnap up a copy. I am a great fan of using Patterns in my code. But theauthors of this book give a completely uneducated and uninformed writing onthis complex subject. Coders who are experienced in Patterns/OOP will laughat this garbage. Novice programmers will be misled completely. I will neverbuy another WROX title again. My guess is that the reviewers who gave thisturkey 5 stars must be friends of the author.

1-0 out of 5 stars Utter waste of money and time - stay away
I bought this book based on the reviews at amazon. The time I spent on this book could have been better utilized elsewhere. The author tries to talk about powerbuilder/OOP/design patterns/ActiveX/OCX/VB and so onwithout anygrasp of the concepts underlying any of these technologies andmethodologies. The result is a hopeless morass of confused ramblings withno direction. I wonder how some of the other reviewers gave this sorryexcuse of a book 5 stars. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Clear and Step-by-Step THIS.
This was the textbook chosen by my educational institute to introduce us to PowerBuilder and Object-Oriented Fundamentals. I'd have to say it fails on each of those counts. 2-0 out of 5 stars Good as a reference, Look elsewhere if you're a beginner
While the book is good for referencing topics when you already know PowerBuilder.You might find yourself lost if you're starting out and trying to follow the example from the book.There are points where thefigures in the book don't match where you are at that point in the code. Not to mention the fact that the code that you can download is differentthen the code descibed in the book.Definetly not a book to learnPowerBuilder from.

1-0 out of 5 stars Needs work.
There are numerous errors throughout which would turn many developers away from PB, especially beginners.I cannot recommend this book. ... Read more
