The VO Productivity Pack provides
the VO programmer with essential tools and utilities to make working
with VO even easier. Look at just some of the things you can do with
VO Export Explorer (VOEE) looks and
feels like VO's own repository explorer and provides you with the
ability to examine the contents of AEF/MEF files without loading
them into VO. You can search, view source code, print, export MEFs
from AEFs, and examine application/module/entity properties. VOEE
can compare export files and identify all entities that do not
match. VOEE will tell you what the differences are; maybe the
source code has changed or the compiler options have been altered
- VOEE will tell you specifically what is different. When combined
with a difference analysis plug-in you can even see exactly which
source code lines have been changed.
VOEE can be run stand-alone or can attach to the VO IDE to give
you the ability to compare applications and modules in the
repository with AEFs/MEFs.
VO System Builder gives you a way to
manage collections of VO applications. You can group together
applications, libraries and DLLs into systems, and then perform
actions on the systems. You can touch all components of a system,
recompile them, and generate all executables and DLLS with just a
few mouse clicks from VO's IDE.
VO AutoExport will automatically
export your source code from the VO repository. You can configure
when VO AutoExport should do its work - when VO starts up or shuts
down, or at a user defined interval. So if you need a fall-back
position when you've forgotten to explicitly export your code, or
if something causes a problem with your repository, VO AutoExport
may give you a second chance.
VO Global Search and Replace
integrates with the CA-VO IDE. Like VO's in-built search facility
VO-GSR allows the developer to search for text any where within
the current application, search path or project. However VO-GSR
also allows searching within the result set from the last search,
optionally excluding system libraries, and optionally excluding
user specified libraries. And VO-GSR lets developer replace text
after a search - the current match only, all matches in the
current entity, all matches in the current module, all matches in
the current application, or all matches in the project.
VO Import Assistant allows importing
of one or more AEFs, from one or more directories. As it does so
VO Import Assistant will examine the export files and, according
to each application's dependencies, determine the order the files
should be imported. Any imported application will replace an
existing application of the same name in the repository retaining
any current dependency properties. For example, imagine you use a
third party library that is named the properties of many of your
applications. When a new version of the library is issued you can
use VO Import Assistant to import the replacement - if the library
has the same name as the old one all applications will retain the
reference to the library in their properties.
VO Import Assistant allows optional compilation of the imported
applications and all applications depending on the imported code.
It also allows optional generation of executables and DLLs for the
imported applications and all applications depending on the
VO Export Assistant will export an
application and all libraries used by the application.
Updated Entity List provide a report
showing the most recently changed entities in an application or
project. Entities are listed with the most recently changed ones
at the top of the report.
Reset Application Debug Status
changes the debug setting of all modules/entities of an
application to Auto and sets the application debug setting Off.
Editor Indent reindents the contents
of your currently active VO source code editor window.
Editor Print prints the contents of
your currently active VO source code editor window. The output can
be configured in various ways: page orientation, font size, number
of columns, line numbers, captions and more.
VO Project Copy will copy the
currently select project in VO to a new directory. If you want,
you can have the code in the new project automatically compiled
and any EXEs/DLLs generated.
Application as PRG/MEF gives you the
choice of exporting an application as a collection of PRG or MEF
files. If you choose to export as PRG files, one file will written
for each module in the application. The PRG files contain all
source code from the modules, including resource statements and
DLL prototypes. If you choose to export as MEF files each module
will be exported automatically.
