We have several Powerbuilder Jaguar components deployed on our server.
The deployment process compiles PBD files from our PBLs and places these
PBDs on the Jaguar server.

We use the resultset method of retrieval, and pass the name of the
dataobject to Jag as a string. The retrieval component loads a datastore
and sends the data back as a resultset. This means that the datawindow
definition must be on the Jag server, I'm assuming in one of those PBDs.

Now, recently we needed to change a datawindow slightly to retrieve
different columns. I could not figure out any way to get just the
changed datawindow definition over to the Jag server. I tried compiling
the new PBD in Powerbuilder and putting it in a new "Cn" directory off
the component's Repository subdirectory, but that didn't work. I had to
redeploy the component, which deployed the new PBDs.

Is there a better way? We have 4 components that are pretty
interdependent, and we handle different database connections with
different packages, so the deployment process can get complicated and
time-consuming.

I would put the datawindow into separate pbl/pbd and change the library list
of the component at runtime( or through component properties ) to point to
the correct pbl/pbd. This would also allow u to update the datawindow
definition without having to redeploy the component. Alternatively, u can
use the exported datawindow definition approach. However, changing of
library list at runtime is the recommended approach as it offer greatest
flexibility ( look at the html datawindow source code for hints ).
