Sybase will be giving our company a presentation on migrating from PB 6.5 to
PB 9.0 with a view to deploying to the WEB.
Our application is three tier.
PB App Servers on Mid teir Servers
PB Client applications on WinNT and Win98 PCs
If anyone has any experiences (usually bad) with migration issues I would
appreciate any input or advice on specific questions and issues we should
bring up at this presentation.
What app servers are you using now? Is this currently a DPB app?

There is a window w_child inherited from w_parent.The

In ue_1 of w_parent there is a dw_1.retrieve(arg1,arg2).

We are using PB 5.04 Enterprise at this moment and are almost happy (uch)
Because we don't programming applications for the Internet (maybe in the
near future) we haven't upgraded to version 6.0 and 6.5. Now we are confused
what to do, keeping the old and 'stable' version (5.04) or upgrading to a
newer version. Are there features in the newer versions wich make it a
'must' to upgrade. What are this features. Or are there reasons to stay on
5.04 (buggy newer versions?).

This sounds like a goofy question but I am migrating some PFC dependant
applications from PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5 and was going to reset the library
list to the new PB 6.5 PFC libraries, but I can't find them in 6.5. Where
Check to make sure you installed them. By default, unless you do a custom
install, they aren't. (Don't ask me why, I think they should be deployed
by default so everyone can start using them).
If they were, then look under:

Any suggestion/help would be greatly appreciated.
That's really not enough information to be helpful. You probably need
to do some profiling of your application to determine what operations
are taking too much time. Once you've narrowed it down somewhat we
may be able to help.

I recently migrated a PFC/PFE application from PB 5.04 to 6.5. I have
compiled it down to p-code and am able to run the application from both the
developement environment & from the EXE on the machine that has PB 5.04
installed on it. When I move the application and the PB 6.5 deployment DLL's
to a machine without PB 5.04 on it, it starts asking me for the whole set of
PB 5.04 deplymnt DLL's. It's like there is some sort of dependance on PB
5.04 that I didn't break during the migration process.

I am having problems running the my application after migrating it to PB 6.5.
The application was migrated successfully. Then, I added all the new
PFC objects and PBLs as per the guidelines provided by Sybase. The full rebuild
was also successful except for a few warnings about instance variables of
local structure type being implicit in the next release. However, when I start
up the application and try to open any screen having datawindows, it crashes
with Dr. Watson's error.
Did anybody have a similar experience?
Any help in this regard would be greatly appreciated.

The migration should be straightforward. Back up your PB 5.0.04 source,
run the migration once and note the errors, warnings, etc... that are
generated from the migration. Fix those in your backed ...
