The PowerBuilder paradigm

Being a rapid application development (RAD) tool PowerBuilder is very effective in creating typical data entry (CRUD) and reporting functionality.

However, PowerBuilder systems tend to be bulky monolithic monsters after many years of maintenance done by different generations of developers. Monolithic architecture is a traditional software architecture that consists of a single, tightly-coupled system and this architecture has large disadvantages.

It is a huge challenge to retain PowerBuilder developers and to train young developers to be able to maintain and evolve mission critical systems written in PowerBuilder.

Get a migration approach and effort estimation

Kuscos, our static source code analysis will perform a deep analysis and inventory of the PowerBuilder legacy code, which will be used to assess the overall migration effort.

Kuscos produces a wealth of valuable insights about the legacy code architecture and its structure, including several industry code metrics that are highly valuable to define a strategy and a detailed plan for the migration project initiative.

 

How to get there:

1 – Access to the source code and analyze it with Kuscos. Morphis has developed a methodology to meet your most stringent security and confidentiality concerns towards your application source code.

 

2 -Generate a Kuscos full report, including:

  • Powerbuilder Object types inventory (Windows, UO, DW, …)
  • Several metrics such as number of Lines of PowerBuilder Code, cyclomatic complexity, Depth of Call Tree, Inheritance Trees, among others.
  • PowerBuilder functions, events, variables, and constants inventory counters.
  • Powerbuilder code – database interaction, covering used tables and stored procedures identification, CRUD operations inventory, among others.
