Productivity Tools for Software Configuration Management

Polaris and our business partners have created a host of productivity tools that can be integrated with CA Technologies' AllFusion Harvest Change Manager products. These tools include:

HarPB

HarPB is a specialized utility for checking PowerBuilder source objects in and out to PowerBuilder Libraries (PBLs) and checking objects in from PBLs. These operations are non-standard to most source control systems because the PBL is a proprietary binary format of PowerBuilder. HarPB supports Harvest V5.02 and later.

PowerGen

PowerGen is the essential tool to automate the building of PowerBuilder applications. Based on a proven process for producing PowerBuilder deliverables, PowerGen performs high-integrity object regeneration, PBL optimization, and creation of PowerBuilder dynamic (PBD) libraries and executables for large applications spanning multiple interdependent executables and PBDs.

PowerGen lets you exclude third-party and common libraries, when appropriate, to conserve build resources. PowerGen also offers an Incremental Regeneration capability that reduces the time for build/debug cycles without compromising build integrity.

HarFind

HarFind is a utility used to find objects in an AllFusion Harvest Repository containing a matching string. For example, if you have been assigned to fix a problem in an application and the fix requires adding a new field to a database table, you need to be able to find the other code referencing that table. HarFind allows you to search the code easily, preventing you from creating new problems while fixing this one. HarFind 2.0 also has advanced reporting features, and it is also CA Smart Certified.
