Description

PowerBuilder 7 now lists in the Objects view of the Database painter all utilities available with each database interface. This simplifies the process of connecting to a database — all the necessary client-side tasks used to configure and test software can be initiated from a single location.

For example, the Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SYC) database interface has an Open Client entry that may include utilities such as SQL Advantage, OC OS Config, and ISQL. The ODBC database interface now includes the ODBC Administrator as a utility.

Usage

Double-click a utility to launch it.

Configuring ODBC connections  You need to use Microsoft's ODBC Data Source Administrator to define an ODBC data source. (The Configure ODBC button is no longer available.) Since ODBC data sources are now defined outside the PowerBuilder environment, PowerBuilder does not automatically create an ODBC profile. After defining a data source, you must return to the PowerBuilder environment to create the appropriate profile. Note that the newly defined data source will appear in the dropdown listbox used to specify the data source in the ODBC profile dialog box.
