Exploring Datawindow Data Sources

With this feature, PowerBuilder developers can explore Datawindow DataSources and visualize their dependencies with the Database:

Table updated, Retrieve SQL, Stored Procedures called for Retrieve/Insert/Update/Delete, DW columns used for parameter passing etc.

Analyze multiple PB applications

With VE 2016 You can analyze several PB applications in a single VE project. You get a overall analysis of PB applications relying on the same ancestor libraries/framework.

Explore previous versions of your code

VE 2016 now includes a new Oracle code parser that can analyse PL/SQL Code, as well as DDL statements (create tables, etc.).
Visual Expert 2016 also analyzes dependencies between the PB code and the database more deeply than in previous versions.
