Currently we are using PowerBuilder 2017 R3 connected to SVN. 

I am trying to automate our build and deployment process using SVN.exe's and PBC170.exe's command line syntax. I was able to successfully generate build but the place where I am stuck is getting the latest version of the objects to the PBLs. 

When we make a change to any object and commit the changes in SVN the ws_objects folder gets updated with the latest change in SVN remote server. But the PBLs remain unchanged. 

So to get the latest version of the object we have to login to the PB IDE and right click on the target and do SVN Update. 

I couldn't find any command line alternative to this. I tired SVN update --depth infinity which updated the ws_objects folder but not the PBLs. So build generated from that will still have the old version of the objects. 

Is there any way I can import the changed objects from ws_objects to the PBLs through commandline

Hi Swarnendu;

   For that type of update, you would use the ORCAScript.exe utility before running the external compiler (PBC.exe). ORCAScript will refresh your App code from the SCM repository.

Thank you Chris for the lead. Let me see if I can make that work
