Summary: This section describes how to prepare and deliver the source code of your PowerBuilder application.
Discovery is a process that is actioned during the delivery process CAST will attempt to automatically identify "projects" within your application using a set of predefined rules. Discoverers are currently embedded in CAST AIP Core:
You should read the relevant documentation for each discoverer (provided in the link above) to understand how the source code will be handled.
AIP Console expects either a ZIP/archive file or source code located in a folder configured in AIP Console. You should include in the ZIP/source code folder all PowerBuilder source code:
CAST highly recommends placing the files in a folder dedicated to PowerBuilder. If you are using a ZIP/archive file, zip the folders in the "temp" folder - but do not zip the "temp" folder itself, nor create any intermediary folders:
D:\temp |-----PowerBuilder |-----OtherTechno1 |-----OtherTechno2
In order for a PowerBuilder analysis to complete successfully
or the path to the pborxx.dll file and the PowerBuilder version must be populated in the
%PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AipConsole\AipNode\aip-node-app.properties file if the PowerBuilder IDE is not installed on the AIP Node.
In essence, AIP Console needs to know the version of PowerBuilder you are delivering/analyzing and where the pborxx.dll file is located:
≥ 2.x %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AIP-Node\application.yml 1.x %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AipConsole\AipNode\aip-node-app.properties
The following sections relevant and should be uncommented/filled in as appropriate:
≥ 2.x # ============== # PowerBuilder configuration # -------------- # Provide the full paths of the pborcXXX.dll that are available on this host separated by ';' #powerbuilder: # pborcdll: # location: C:\\Users\\ABD\\Documents\\PB9\\Shared_PB9\\pborc90.dll;C:\\Users\\ABD\\Documents\\PB10\\Shared_PB10\\pborc100.dll # Maximum number of parallel job executions # If maximum number of parallel job executions is reached, the job will wait in queue 1.x # ============== # PowerBuilder configuration # -------------- # Default version of Power Builder to analyze between (Version8, Version9, VersionX, VersionX5, VersionXI, VersionXI5, VersionXII, VersionXII5, VersionXII6, Version2017, Version2018) powerbuilder.compile.version=Version8 # Path of the pborcXXX.dll file associated to the default PowerBuilder version powerbuilder.pborcdll.location=
If neither method reveals the location of the pborcXXX.dll file/PowerBuilder version, then the analysis will fail. Above all, the options defined in the AIP Console GUI have priority over the Windows registry and the aip-node-app.properties file (in that order).

When creating packages to discover and extract your PowerBuilder application you should create them as listed below:
Source code root folder
Use the "Files on your file system" / SVN / TFS options in the CAST Delivery Manager Tool:
