To PFC or Not To PFC
I'm returning to PB development after about 7 years in management and
I'm trying to figure out how PFC fits into the current PB world. I
used it with 6.5 and thought it was great (though sometimes a little
complex, especially when debigging). It seems that Sybase doesn't
push it anymore and I think I saw a post that said it hasn't changed
I'll be developing an app for commercial sale and I think PB is
perfect since I think I can get more done in a shorter period of time
with PB than with anything else. I especially like that PB's future
will there be an open source PFC-Extender like it was in PB8
or 9 ?
You might want to add that as an issue on the open source PFC project
to help remind us to ask Sybase for the source.

What might the disadvantages of using PFC on the server side of a PBD app?
I read a thread in which Dean Jones(Team PS) recommended that it
not be used. I was just interested in what these reasons might be
other than the bulk and a good portion of the PFC relating to the
GUI side development.
The PFC is a framework to build GUI client applications and is not intended
for use as a DPB server framework. The needs of a DPB server such as load
balancing, error log...PFC
Anyone know if Sybase has, or has plans for, a PFC translation into PPB?
Refer to other postings....
The PPB group has no plans.
There is a light-weight foundation class being developed by
a user. Check out:

Let me correct myself, if you have powerbuilder Enterprise.
In PFC I cant use Ctl + c , ctl + v , ctl + x for simple operations like
copy, paste or cut.
can anyone help...
This newsgroup is mainly for the discussion of the future of PowerBuilder. For this type of question, you
should probably post in powersoft.public.powerbuilder.pfc

Re-insert the installation disk and select 'Custom Installation'. Then select
PowerBuilder and in the setup choose 'Change'. Out of the PB components, just

If i develop a pfc app. do i need to deply all the pfc libraries too...
won't this make the app very large?
Yes, you'll need the PFC libraries..Unless you want to try to spend the time
to take what you need and just copy objects to your app. From what I've
read it here that solution can be quite tedious and sometimes painful.

Dear PFC users,
hopefully someone has an answer and will see fit to respond to my
PFC 6 - n_cst_appmanager blows up when I attempt to inherit from it or
even modify n_cst_appmanager itself and call it back up to reedit.
Depending upon what chapter and verse in the PFC Foundation Class
library, one is to either use it directly (chapter 3) or inherit from it
(the tutorial). And, yes, I've regenned the pbl's. Some warnings; some
errors. PB 6.0 Enterprise AND PB 6.0 Professional, Win95 and pentiums

I have developed my applications without PFC, and now in trouble with
the security and other functionality, is it possible for me to add the

Syed <sas@mas...Upgrading PFC 6 to PFC 10
We use PFC, CORP & PFE in our application. The application
was migrated from PB 6.5 to 8. We did not upgrade our PFC
from 6.5 to PFC 8 but instead just migrated the PFC to PB 8.
Now we are looking to migrate the app. from 8 to 10. So now
instead of just migrating PFC code from 8 to 10 we want to
actually upgrade the PFC 8(that was just migrated to 8 & NOT
upgraded) to PFC 10. Can anyone tell or point to a documnet
that tells of how to upgrade a PFC to PFC 10 & ultimatley
upgrade the entire application to 10.
I was able to just migrate the whole application (including
