Hello,

is there an option for PowerBuilder 2019 R3 to merge branches? (for example: merge a "development"-branch into the master-branch)? Since R3 it´s possible to create and switch branches via the PB-GUI but i haven´t found a GUI option for merging.

Or do i need to use git via command-line / TortoiseGit to do that?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mathias, 

As suggested by Chris, using the Git client for the merging is the recommended way. The feature is not provided in the IDE, because the PB object code is not suitable for merging directly in the IDE. It would easily cause conflicts. If the merge is done in IDE, PowerBuilder would compile the merged code and the compilation error is hard to resolve. 

Best regards, Julie

Hi Mathias;

   Creating a branch and switching branches can now be accomplished within the PB 2019 R3 IDE. However for merging, you would need to use the GIT Client (in your case Tortoise).  HTH
