All - we have installed the new PB19 version but now need the new pbdom19.pbd's as the pbdom17's are not working, can anyone point me to a download of these or should they be in the install package already? Thanks.

hi Roland and thanks. I need a little more clarity though. What do you mean exactly when you say extension? Are we to import the pbdom*.pbd / pbsoap*.pbd into a pbl?  These two appear to be system files without source code. Didn't get any suggestion like this for the PB17 upgrade.

Starting with PB 10.5, the PBD files are not required. Instead you can import the extension into a PBL. Importing into a PBL library allows it to migrate to a new version automatically along with the rest of your target. It also makes for one less file to deploy.

Hi Roland ... FWIW: I never use the PBNI route for WS's, PBDOM, etc as it is a lot easier to just swap out a PBxxxxNnn.PBD when upgrading from PB release X to Y than trying to remember to re-import PBNI extensions again. I have seen too, so many PB developers struggle with the PBNI (PBX) route upon a migration because the resulting objects were not placed in one PBL - thus, causing a maintenance headache. I have found that the PBD swap is more intuitive & straight forward for the maintenance developers. Just my $0.02 based on a few years of PB experiences. ;-)
