PowerBatch is a command line PowerBuilder/PocketBuilder compiler and can be used for batch compiling PowerBuilder projects with a lot of useful options.

PowerBatch provides the following features:
  • command line compiling mode
  • support of PowerBuilder 5 - 12 classic and PocketBuilder 1.5/2.0
  • automatic detection of installed PowerBuilder/PocketBuilder version
  • Conversion of a set of Datawindows and Datastores to separate spreadsheets of Excel workbook
  • import existing PowerBuilder projects
  • check for duplicate objects
  • output files in any directory (not just PBL directory)
  • migration, regeneration or building of one or more selected libs
  • backward migration of application to previous PB versions
  • optimization of libraries
  • support of XP style controls in PB application
  • export source for objects, libraries, entire application
  • import object source
  • import unicode sources to non-unicode PowerBuilder application
  • full (bootstrap) import from application sources
  • delete objects
  • support of FAR MultiArc plugin (in conjunction with PBLDump utility shipped with PowerBatch)
  • support of Perl scripts

    What's New in PowerBatch v.3 ?
  • PowerBatch introduces support for PowerBuilder 12, 12.5 and PocketBuilder 1.5/2.0.
  • PowerBuilder 10-12.5 are Unicode enabled and PowerBatch provides tools for migration to/from other non-Unicode versions of PowerBuilder.
  • When used with PocketBuilder, PowerBatch can build your application for any PocketPC platform your PocketBuilder version supports.

    Automation support
  • PowerBatch introduces support for PBL optimization. Optimization is required when your libraries become fragmented with time and therefore become larger and slower. Automated daily or monthly optimization can avoid such problems.
  • PowerBatch now can manage your executable version resources automatically. You can specify an INI file for storing current version and PowerBatch will increment it before every build and write this version to your EXE.

    XP style controls support
  • As of version 9, PowerBuilder supports new (XP) visual style controls in your application. Now you can specify a PowerBatch option to use XP style controls.

    This useful PowerBuilder tool is developed by our friend and partner Anatoly Moskovsky
