The .Net Framework and other associated third-party managed libraries provide a very rich resource. PowerBuilder users can use these libraries to extend the functionality of PowerBuilder .NET targets and save development time.
.NET language interoperability makes it possible to consume .NET classes and methods in PowerBuilder .NET targets. With .NET language interoperability, you can use PowerBuilder syntax to create .NET classes, call .NET methods, and access .NET properties. You can make use of .NET collection classes, such as Hashtable and Set, and you can also make use of powerful .NET communication classes and other .NET services.
