Airman on Amazon
|Airman running on my actual iPhone.|
However, my pleasure this weekend was to allocate an E2.Medium Amazon Cloud space and load it with the Sybase SQL Anywhere database engine and the Appeon2013R2 web and mobile software that webifies and/or mobilizes almost any PowerBuilder based application. In this, I used Greg's AIRMAN application that is installed in many airports around North America.

The first stage was to get Greg's application and configure it to work on my development machine. From there, I deployed this to my local Appeon Server and unit tested the application under the IE web browser. Once that ran clean, I used Appon's "application packager" to create an MSI installation file - which I unloaded to the Amazon E2 machine.
Once the MSI from the Appeon packager is copied to the target Appeon Server machine, all I had to do was run the MSI to deploy the application and configure a database connection in Appeon to the SQL Anywhere Airman Database. After that, the application started up first time and ran perfectly in the Internet Explorer web browser!

The next step was to point my Appeon WorkSpace application on the iPhone and iPad to the Amazon based Appeon Server cloud machine. After that, the native compiled iOS Airman application was downloaded to these Apple devices and the AIRMAN application ran perfectly these as well.

The final test was to fire up my Samsung tablet and the Appeon WorkSpace application and point this to the Amazon Cloud E2 machine. Once that was done, again the Airman application came alive on this super Android device and ran perfectly the 1st time!

All in all, an out standing weekend with Appeon, Amazon, SA, and the AIRMAN application with only a few hours of work. Watch out Cloud ... Appeon is bringing you its PowerBuilder applications as easy as 1-2-3!
