Calling a Java class from Powerbuilder 12.5

Calling a Java class from Powerbuilder 12.5

Calling a Java class from Powerbuilder 12.5

Hello, I have a Powerbuilder app that connects to an Oracle database on a Linux server. The App also calls a Perl script from one of the screens. The Perl script has been converted to Java. I need to call this Java class from Powerbuilder. The Oracle database is on one server and the Perl script will be on a different Linux server. Is it possible to call a Java class from Powerbuilder. Where would the class need to be,on the pc with the Powerbuilder run time files or on the server? I'm not a Powerbuilder programmer but I need to get this converted over if possible.

The other option I'm looking at is keeping the original Perl script and trying to run it as a CGI from PowerBuilder. If I went this route I'd need to call the CGI thru a URL
from PowerBuilder. Is this option possible. Can I build a URL in PowerBuilder and call a CGI script on a server this way?

A bit desperate as this has to be done asap. Any help anyone can give will be greatly appreciated.

You may wish to post this on https://community.appeon.com/. Appeon is the current developer of PowerBuilder and has an active community to answer questions. I've not done what you are requesting so I don't know what needs to be done but I believe it has been done by others.
