Applying maintenance to PowerDesigner 16.5 SP02

For customers with the Win32 SP02 base product for PowerDesigner 16.5, which of the following EBF maintenance packs should be applied to that base? EBF 22249 appears to have the latest Cover Letter date of 12/11/2013 but is denoted as Service Pack 03. Should this SP03 EBF be applied to the SP02 base and is it a cumulative fix? What does the 'PL' stand for in the first 4 EBFs listed below? Is there a location in the SAP SYBASE Support Portal that lists the latest patch to be applied for any given PowerDesigner base or should we always apply the fix with the latest Cover Letter date?

SYBASE POWERDESIGNER 16.5 -> Win32

EBF 21628: 16.5 SP02 PL01 x86 1 Info 86423 16.12.2013

EBF 21837: 16.5 SP02 PL02 x86 2 Info 85463 16.12.2013

EBF 21930: 16.5 SP02 PL03 x86 3 Info 86499 16.12.2013

EBF 22053: 16.5 SP02 PL04 x86 4 Info 86557 16.12.2013

EBF 21643: 16.5 SP02 x86 0 Info 1500223 16.12.2013

EBF 22249: 16.5 SP03 x86 0 Info 910774 18.12.2013

Thank you.

    Yes, PowerDesigner 16.5 SP03 (16.5.03.00) can be installed on top of PD 16.5 SP02 or any of the 4 PD 16.5 SP02 PLs. Yes it is cumulative. PL stands for Patch Level as far as I know and is equivalent to the old Sybase EBF.

    The EBF/PL can only be applied on a version with the same major and
    minor release numbers. For instance, 16.5 SP02 PL03 can only be applied on a 16.5 SP02 installation.

    I hope this helps.
