Continuous Integration for PowerBuilder

Using PowerBuilder Compiler for PB 2019 and PB 2017

Continuous Integration for PowerBuilder

PowerBuilder 2017 introduced a new standalone tool "PowerBuilder Compiler" (including OrcaScript). It has been designed to significantly facilitate build scripts, and allows the entire build and deployment process to be automated outside of PowerBuilder.

The PowerBuilder standalone compiler can compile or deploy PB projects using DOS commands on Windows.

PBC can also be used with PB2019 projects, but Appeon recommends using its new PBAutoBuild tool, available with PB 2021.
