   STD would like to thank Novalys Corporation for their support of the Foundation Classes by supplying the VisualExpert product for the framework's documentation.

The next Web Service framework release will be based on PowerBuilder 2017 as STD tunes their development efforts to align with the new Appeon PB product (which is being developed starting from the latest SAP PB Classic 12.6 code-line).
