Linux and Power Builder applications.


Dear friends:
>
I got a 11.5 and 10.5 Power Builder applications at office and these are working well with Windows XP.
>
I want to know if these Power Builder applications can work over Linux (Debian). (In my work to need change XP for Linux)
>
My database is 2005 SQL-Server.
>
I need help for this change. I think two alternatives:
>
* Run these applications with WINE
* or Compile these applications and then create an executable program for LINUX.
>
But, I don´t experience in this. I need information or have a tip or tips to solve this problem, (How I know to do it?) I really appreciate.

Thanks a lot

It's not clear what are you trying to do. Are you wanting to run Power Builder under Linux, OR are you wanting to run applications that you (or someone else) programmed using Power Builder?

I want to know if these Power Builder applications can work over Linux (Debian), the same way as Windows XP does.

I was discerning with two alternatives:
To run Power Builder with wine, check the Wine database.

If you want to compile programs that you wrote using Power Builder as Linux native applications, I guess it will depend on the concrete program. .NET apps might have a chance using mono, I have no direct experience, someone else will have to answer that.
