In previous versions of PowerBuilder, you could create only two kinds of target: PowerScript targets and Web (JSP) targets. When you selected EAServer Component, COM/COM+ Component, or Automation Server on the Target page in the New dialog box, you created a component in a PowerScript application target. To enhance usability in the PowerBuilder 11 development environment, the items on the Target page now create a specific type of target.

PowerBuilder 11 has several new target types. The Application Server Component wizard creates a component that you can deploy to a J2EE server. For more information, see "PowerBuilder Application Server Plug-in". There are four .NET wizards. For more information, see ".NET deployment features".

The existing EAServer Component item in the New>Target page displays a wizard that creates an EAServer target, not an Application target as in previous versions of PowerBuilder.

The Automation Server and COM/COM+ wizards have been removed from the Target page in the New dialog box. To create COM/COM+ or Automation Server components, you must first create an application target, and then use the wizard on the Object page to create the component.

Each of the new targets has an associated project type. You provide deploy, run, and debug instructions in the project object. If a library in your target contains projects for a different target type, they do not display in the System Tree.
