2146096 - OrcaScript generates pbds different than the PB IDE - SAP PB


Using OrcaScript to automate the building of SAP PowerBuilder targets that are deployed to a Sybase EAServer 6.3.1 server. In the project object Libraries tab, there are some PBLs that are ticked to be consolidated into a single PBD file when the project is deployed. The unticked PBLs should have separate PBDs created. This works as expected when the project is deployed using the PowerBuilder IDE. When deployed using OrcaScript, it appears that no matter what options are selected, when the project is deployed to EAServer, the component is created with all objects consolidated into a single PBD.  Having separate PBDs for some PBLs in some components, helps to reduce the amount of memory used by an instance of a component.
