Summary: This section describes how to prepare and deliver the source code of your PowerBuilder application.

Preparation - source code discovery

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.

Using CAST AIP Console

Source code delivery

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

PowerBuilder version

In order for a PowerBuilder analysis to complete successfully, the PowerBuilder IDE must be installed on the machine on which the analysis is running - i.e. the AIP Node. AIP Console then needs to know the version of PowerBuilder you are delivering/analyzing:

<AIP_node_installation>\AipNode\data\aip-node-app.properties


# ==============
# 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=

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).

Using legacy CAST Delivery Manager Tool
