Powerbuilder + Newsletter

Hello

I'm looking for a way to interface Powerbuilder with a program for Newsetter.

I need to send emails, but did not want to use MAPI for a variety of reasons which I will not specify here.

Someone has interfaced some free program ?

The maximum would be able to share (somehow) the master data of the program with those of our. ERP.


thank you

G.

    I cannot disagree with anything you have said 😭

    I'm glad you were able to help Armeen, he was really after a list of bugs that need fixing (I suspect so that he could charge SAP for it 😉)

      Hi David;

        I'm guessing that the main reason for knowing the bugs in PB 12.6 is that SAP and/or Appeon are looking to start their PB adventure off with the version 12.6 code set. However if true ( again just a guess on my part) - that being said, it then puts the pressure on Appeon to fix the various problems in v12.6 first before they can move PB Classic ahead to the next level. So its a real challenge (IMHO) for Appeon as they need to figure out how soon they can deliver a new PB release with new features yet address the various problems introduced by SAP to make PB attractive again to upgrade.

          SAP caused the v12.6 problem (IMHO) by not running a proper public beta and release candidate series product roll-out like any other normal software vendor would do - even as we had always seen with PowerSoft & Sybase. I have never seen any other reputable system software vendor do such a shoddy software release like SAP did on PB 12.6.

        Personally - if i were SAP & Appeon - I would make the next release free like Microsoft did with W10 to regain some PB community trust and apologize for v12.6. I would also expect SAP to compensate Appeon monetarily for their software injustice until Appeon can get PB back on its feet. Its really the "right" thing for SAP to do considering the 4+ years of product grief the PB Community has had to endure.

      Just my $0.02.

      Regards ... Chris

    thanks for the answers, I will treasure, but I was looking for something to link an external product for newsletter (free)

    so it manages the lists of sending,

    templates for letters,

    send block (not massive to avoid spam),

    etc
