Power Builder Migration

PB to Java Migration / Modernization

If any of your IT applications are running on PowerBuilder environment, you better hurry to migrate them to safer and stable environment.

Non-availability of qualified manpower, growing maintenance fees, proprietary technology with an uncertain long term direction, and inadequate enhancements are some of the pressing challenges to warrant PowerBuilder migration initiatives.

Styrone Inc presents robust, cost-effective, and automated tools-based migration/ modernization solutions for PowerBuilder applications.  As a proven leader in legacy migration solutions, our approach combines retention of the business logic, efficiency of automated tools, and agility of re-architecture to be consistent with enterprise architecture standards.

Our migration solutions have known to provide upto 60% cost benefits, compared to manual re-write. With an unprecedented flexibility to re-architect (for example, thick-client to thin-client, or SOA based) or for straight migration (one-to-one), you are assured of best-in-class solution with least investments.

PowerBuilder Migration to Java/J2EE

Java/J2EE is now corporate standard for applications development. Legacy migration, and particularly PowerBuilder migration, to Java technology can be expensive and risky, if not implemented with a sound methodology. Styrone Inc brings years of experience and scores of legacy migrations across the globe.

Styrone Inc’ Powerbuilder to Java migration solutions include:
  • Automated conversion tools, for accuracy and efficiency
  • Robust migration methodology
  • Re-architecture for web-clients or SOA
  • Adoption of industry-standard design patterns and frameworks
  • Best practices of application management
  • Global delivery model, where needed, for faster and cheaper implementations

Automated Tools

Styrone Inc uses a suite of proprietary tools for PowerBuilder Migration. Our tools assist in every phase of the project – starting form assessment, to GUI design, to business logic conversion. Our tools work for all versions of PowerBuilder. The migrated code can be deployed on any J2EE-compliant application servers such as Websphere, Weblogic, Jboss, Oracle iAS etc.


PowerBuilder applications usually provide critical business functionalities and are, therefore, often complex. Our migration approach recognizes and accommodates the need of businesses to continually evolve the application under migration.

While our automated migration tools guarantee significant savings in effort and costs, our proven and perfected ‘PB Migration Process’ is equally important for successful PowerBuilder migration. Be it scoping the project, or selecting a suitable candidate for proof-of-concept (POC), or validating target architecture, or slicing the application for allowing the changes in the source application while the migration is under progress - our approach takes care of it all.


Our PowerBuilder migration approach consists of
  • Assessment
  • Architecture Migration using compatible J2EE architecture patterns and design patterns suitable for target environment.
  • Architecture validation to validate the critical architectural parameters to study and understand in the existing system and to propose the equivalent in the migrated system
  • Source Code Migration using automated migration tools followed by manual re-factoring
  • GUI Migration to equivalent in J2EE using automated tools
  • Business logic Migration to equivalent in J2EE using automated tools
  • Identification of reusable business components and expose them as services
  • Unit testing, Integration testing, system testing, user-acceptance testing for each vertical Slice
  • Parallel co-existence of PB and J2EE systems during migration cycle
  • System testing and user-acceptance testing for the entire migrated application
  • Deployment of migrated system in production environment
