Upgrade configuration settings manually

After the product upgrade, most configurations made in the old version are retained and will continue to work in Appeon for PowerBuilder 2016. However, because the configuration settings of Appeon for PowerBuilder 2016 have been adjusted, it is recommended that you review the configuration settings in Appeon Developer and Appeon Server AEM to become familiar with the new settings and make sure the old ones are not lost or mis-configured.

After verifying all settings, Appeon applications deployed with the old version and Appeon Demos must be redeployed in Appeon for PowerBuilder 2016.

Note: If the application uses Appeon Workarounds PBL, you must use the new Appeon Workarounds PBL to replace those of the old version.

Settings lost in upgrade (for Appeon Demos)

  • The Data Source settings in AEM.

    You need to manually create the following data sources: appeonsample and appeonsample2. The appeonsample data source connects to appeonsampleforserver ASA/SQL Anywhere ODBC data source, and the appeonsample2 data source connects to appeonsample2forserver ASA/SQL Anywhere ODBC data source.

  • The transaction object settings in AEM.

    You need to manually map transaction object(s) to data source, mainly, map sqlca to appeonsample. For appeon_code_examples, you also need to map its_sql to appeonsample and its_sqt to appeonsample2.
