PFC ? Not PFC ?
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
copies of the PFC, PFD, and PFE p...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

We have an old legacy app that is still used here. It's
been migrated to PB 10, but the framework is uses was
developed in house years ago and is inadequate. I would
love to move the app to PFC.
I searched around and didn't find any articles or posts on
this topic. The one article referenced was from a
conference in 1998 and the link is invalid now on the sybase
site. Anyone know of any valid links/articles/guidance on

What is the best approach for extending an existing application through
the use of the PFC, while minimizing changes to the existing code?
I'm on a development team tasked with developing major additions to an
existing PB application. This application was developed without any use
of the PFC (or any class library, or any use of inheritance - if you can
believe it!. I realize the sane approach would be to nuke the existing
code and start over, but our bean counter masters won't allow it) Our
development effort has to be focused on the new functionality - a major

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...Migrating non-PFC applications to PFC.
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...How to include the pfc in a non pfc application

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

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

We are just about to start a new project using:
There is a good chance that the application will be required
for intranet/web access and it is forseen that Appeon will
be used to enable this.
We are very keen to use a framework to speed development and
ease mainteance etc - should we use PFC - will this cause
problems when we use Appeon ?
Any guidance or experience on similar projects very welcomed

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.
