Migration from PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5.1


Anybody have experience in migrating PB application from 5.0.04 to
6.5.1?   Is it a easy stuff, or we need to modify a lot for the

For the installation of PB 6.5.1, do I need to
install 6.0, then 6.5, and then 6.5.1, and then 6.5.1 EBF,
or I can start in the mid-way?

Is there any performance gain (or loss) for 6.5.1 vs 5.0?

Thanks in advance ...Andrew 11Jan2000

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 up source, make
a copy of the updated source, migrate again.  Lather, rinse, repeat as

I believe 6.5 comes as a full install and does not require 6.0 to be
installed first, but I'm not 100% sure.  You should check with your
Sybase sales rep.  You will have to download and apply the EBF's
yourself, though.

As for performance, my gut feel is that PB 6.5.1 should be a bit faster
than 5.0.04, but everyone's mileage varies.  Only testing will tell for
sure.  Part of this depends on the machine, amount of RAM, and, of
course, what your application is doing.

There have been a large number of issues with PB7's performance, both in
the development environment and at deployment and Sybase is working on
those issues.

PB 5.0.04 to PB 6.5 Migration
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 are they? 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: C:\Program Files\Sybase\PB6\ADK\PFC On Thu, 6 May 1999 09:32:37 -0500, in powersoft.public.powerbuilder....

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) with it. 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??? Greetings, Hans Groeneveld ...

PB 6.5.0 vs PB 6.5.1 with datastores
Hi all, 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...
