You can develop a custom class user object containing business logic in PowerBuilder and then package the object as an automation server. PowerBuilder or any other OLE-enabled development tool can be the client application, accessing the methods and properties of the PowerBuilder object.
PowerBuilder includes three wizards for building automation servers:
- Start wizard Creates a new application and a new custom class user object
- Object wizard Creates a new custom class user object in an existing application
- Project wizard Builds an automation server from an existing custom class user object
