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' Harvest Change Manager products. These tools include:
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 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.
