Hi All, 

We are trying to migrate a Power builder Application  from Power Builder 12.1 version to Power Builder 2017 R2.

Application is having PFC in it. 

We have migrated the existing code to 2017 R2 and rebuild the code successfully with No errors and with few warnings. 

After rebuilding, We updated the existing PFC libraries with 2017 PFC libraries and again ran the full build which throws errors. 

 

I am new to PFC concepts, Please Advise. Thank You.

Hi Chris, 



I downloaded the new 2017 PFC libraries from below



https://github.com/OpenSourcePFCLibraries/2017/releases



and  got the PBLs,  I download the first zip file from the Releases tab.

So you know where to start now right?  It looks like you have some old code in PFE objects that you need to put in your new PFE objects.  If it was me, I'd start with the first set of compile errors and figure out where you need to copy code from the old PFE.  Start with the n_cst_logonattrib object.  That should fix almost all of the errors that I saw in the first.  Next check to see what w_ipa_user_maintenance is inherited from (maybe w_sheet or similar), then get that code from the old PFE and replace that.  It will probably have the of_setrmbmenu function.  That should get you started.  If you need more help lmk.

Hi



You need to go through each of the errors, look at why the error is occurring and what the code is being used for. Take the below as an example.



---------- Compiler: Errors   (3:33:25 PM)

auto_trade_console.pbl(w_consolelogon).w_consolelogon.pfc_default.85: Error       C0019: Incompatible property is_db_environment for type n_cst_logonattrib



It would appear that in your previous PFE layer you had an instance variable of is_db_environment, you need to understand what this was being used for and decide if it is still relevant (quite often it is not). If not you can just get rid of the code that references it, if it is important then you need to add relevant code that fits with the new PFC structures to deliver the same functionality.



If you approach each problem in turn and review the issues then you will get to the end with a fully working system. There is no substitute for doing the job properly and certainly no quick fixes.



There are very few errors and some are for the same reason, if should not be that difficult to resolve them.



Regards



David

Chris is quite right. Unless you know the history and what changes have been made to the PFE layer it will be quite risky changing that layer.

You have not said what errors you are getting, perhaps it might be safer to look at those a rectify them.

David

Hi Balaji;

     Depending on how old your PFC PBL libraries were originally .. you may also be missing some new extension layer objects as well that you may need to grab from the new PFE layer PBL`s as well (do not replace your current PFE libraries if you know that you have customized them) . The odd extension layer object may have been updated as well over various PFC releases. Thus, you may need to refresh the odd PFE object as well from the newer PFC libraries.

    We would probably need to see the details of the error(s) that you are getting in order to advise you any further.

HTH

Regards ... Chris
