Powerbuilder Upgrade Issues (PB 6.5 to PB 9.0.1)
We are having some issues while trying to upgrade from PB
6.5 to PB 9.0.1 The database is Sybase .I was hoping if you
could post in any usergroups
There is a window w_child inherited from w_parent.The
datasource of this dw_1 is a Stored Procedure that runs in
Sybase ASE 12.5
In ue_1 of w_parent there is a dw_1.retrieve(arg1,arg2).
ue_1 of w_child extends ue_1of w_parent. In ue_1 of w_child
the code checks the condition dw_1.rowcount() >0 based on
which it decides on the execution flow.
While running the application, no rows are getting
re...PB 7.0 or PB 6.5 or PB 6.0 or PB5.04
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?).
What is doing the rest of the Powerbuilder world???

We are in the process of migrating from PB 6.5 to 9.0.1 Build 7096. We found
that when we are inserting rows using PB 6.5 it was found that the SQL which
got generated in where was : WHERE APPLICANT_ID = NULL,
In PB 9.0 the same datawindow is generating SQL as : WHERE APPLICANT_ID is
The 2nd one is taking a long time to display the blank screen. Is there any
solution to this which can be put in the INI file?
Environment is Oracle 9i R2 and PB 9.0 using O84 drivers.
Why are you not using the "O90" drivers?
"RH" <rharv...Migrating from PB 6.5 to PB 9.0
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?

I have designed an app using PB 6.5.1 and feel quite confortable to write
another app using this version of Power Buulder. I am aware that there have
been many other releases after this but have heard many developers complain
about not being stable and so forth. I can't say how true this is cause I
never bothered to update to later releases. I recently got a contract for a
new app and quite likely will be using Power Biulder but I am wondering if
am cheating myself by not trying to upgrade myself to a later release of
You...PB 6.5.0 vs PB 6.5.1 with datastores
I began developing a large application using PB 6.5.0 several months ago.
For various reasons, we had to migrate the code to 6.5.1. After performing
some recursion testing, we noticed that many operations involving datastores
( create, insert rows, update, destroy ) began generating random GPF/Page
Faults. The code itself hasn't changed and was verified in PB 6.5.0 via
extensive testing. This is a hard one to pinpoint since the crashing is
somewhat random. I've read some posts that indicate that certain dot
notation can be problematic. All objects were fully rebuilt...PB 5.0 to PB 6.5, 7.x, 8.0??
I have a client who needs to move from an initial PB 5.0 release (no patches
applied) to a newer version of PB. This is a small internal application but
they would like to open it up via the internet in the future. They are
currently running on a SQL Anywhere DB but would be looking to change that
I don't have any hands on experience with PB 7.x but from what I heard and
read it hasn't been that great. I've been using PB 6.5 since build 444 and
was thinking of recommending that they make the move to 6.5 first and then
wait for PB 8.0 later this year.

Any people run into any problems with 6.5.1 (+ EBF 1163)
that were not there in vanilla 6.5.0.
We have to migrate very late in the game (1 week before going live!)
due to problems with 6.5.0 Oracle drivers and I would appreciate
any advice on anything that got broken in that release.

I have a question about compatibility between PB native driver and oracle
sql*net for different versions of Power Builder.
We have 3 applications developed in 3 different versions of Power Builder:
5.00.0.0, 188.8.131.520 and 7.0.10047
All of them are using the Oracle Client 8.1.6 and accessing via PB Native
Driver to Oracle. Although this is combination is not supported, the person
in charge of the PB part tested this combination and decided to upgrade
the oracle client from version 7.3.X to 8.1.6. So far it is working
properly for us.

No, if you just downloaded the PB 6.5 (free) maintenance files that
is what you're supposed to do.
However if you have upgraded your PB6.0 to the full PB 6.5 version,
which includes PowerSite 1.5, PowerDesigner Appmodeler, soon to be
