Your help is much needed. I have developed many windows and datawindows
without using PFC, how do i make the pfc to be the ancestor of all my
windows and datawindows?

You will have to export each object to a file. Then you can edit the file
to change to ancestor and import it again. I suggest you create separate
PBL's before you import because you don't want to overwri...Application in Powerbuilder 5.0.2 with PFC
I recently found myself in charge of an application built in Powerbuilder
5.0.2 using the PFC. Nobody seems to have the installation disks for PB
5.0.2 available anymore, so I was looking at Powerbuilder 8. I have never
used PB 8 nor have I used PFC in any version. My 2 questions are 1) can and
go from PB 5.0.2 to PB 8 and 2) how do you migrate using the PFC?? Thanks.

I'm going to be involved in migrating a non-PFC application to PFC based
application. I've been working with PFC since it came out, but I've not been
involved with conversion of a non-PFC application. Would anybody share
his/her thoughts about the process involved in doing that and the pitfalls
to watch for. I would appreciate any input. Thanks.
I've only done it on small apps and it was a real headache. For starters you
must throw away your existing mdi frame, login window, etc, and use the ones
in PFC. All your frame logic, which isn't already...Application Error migrating PFC application
I am trying to migrate an existing application that uses PFC's. I am
migrating from P/B 7.0.3 to P/B 8.0.4. After successfully migrating the
object and running it within the P/B environment, I compiled the code.
I copied it to a folder with the P/B runtime DLL's and tried to run the
program. The program starts and you see the PFC supplied Logon window. If
I do anything at all, the program dies with an Application Error. The
instruction at "0x10c86afc" reference memory at "0x00000000003". The memory
could not be read.
By doing anything, I mean things l...Hybrid PFC non-PFC Application
We have a very large application we would like to migrate to the PFC
over time. Unfortunately we will be required to keep a hybrid
application in production during the conversion process because we are
constantly adding new functionality. Does anyone have any experiences
they can share?
I would *not* suggest attempting this. Instead, keep maintaining the old
version (turing out point releases) while you develop a new major version
(based on PFC). I don't think that a hybrid PFC application would work
well. (I wouldn't expe...Hybrid PFC/non-PFC Applications
We have a large application that we would like to migrate to the PFC.
The application is constantly being customized to meet the needs of
different customers so we cannot freeze the application while the
conversion takes place. Our plan is to build all new portions of the
application using the PFC and convert the existing parts of the
application over time as resources allow us to do so. Does anyone have
experience with hybrid applications? We know we will need two different
transaction objects, are there any other issues we will need to deal

...Converting existing non-PFC applications to PFC.
We have some applications which were developed in PB 4 and has been upgraded
to PB5 and migrated to PB6.
We have custom made ancestor objects for windows as well as user objects for
dws. we have upto 4 layers of objects.
We wish to convert our application to take advantage of PFC.
Can any one out there guide whether this would reuqire re-writting the
entire system ?
We have lot of NVUOs which work as PFC services but with having different
purpose. Our applications are very large and rewritting would amount to
atleast 35 man months of work.

Can I use the PFC resize service in my old MDI applications without PFC
template. How can I do it.
I've imported this nvo objects in my applications but i don�t know how can i
use it with my windows.
There is no blanket answer for that. You (or someone) would have to
look at each individual service in question and determine how it's
linked into other objects. For example, I'd expect very little
cross-dependencies for the String service, but I'd expect a lot of
issues with the Logical Unit of Work service. Also, if you've
implemented an anc...PB Application to PB Application communication
I need to have 2 powerbuilder application be able to communicate with one
another. A string is all I need to pass between the two applications.
I tried creating a com object that I could connect to from both
applications. This com object would basically store the information I want
to pass between the two applications in an instance variable. One
application would populate that instance variable, then notify the other
application(through the send command) to go read the information in the com
I created the com object fine and can call a function on the com object

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

I am about to start a very big application and would like to know whether
to use PFC or not. Is it not a good idea if we are only using a very small
portion of the PFC functionalities?
What are the benefits of using PFC? What are the disadvantage of using it?
We already have development problem because it is too slow to bring up the
object and window list in the dubugger.
To Use or Not to Use? I dont have an answer for you there but, a solution to
your speed of the debug issue is the following. We have found that keeping

Curious on what different solutions there are for one application that is closing down to contact another application.
I have the closing down applicaton sending something to the database and for the other application to monitor the database records, but I think that is a horrible solution.
Another idea would be when the closing down application sends a message to the database for the database to then respond by sending a message to the other application, but that means the database would have to know where the other application is. If possible, the security issue mak...
