Technology support changes
Please also see Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x for more detailed discussion of this subject.
CAST AIP now supports the analysis of SAP PowerBuilder 2017, 2017 R2 and 2017 R3. There are no changes to the method of support, in other words, the PowerBuilder IDE is still required on the Analysis machine (see PowerBuilder - Required third-party software).
CAST Management Studio GUI
