Power Designer API

Hello Community,

Does PowerDesigner have an Java/Python etc. API that can be called so that I can retrieve a physical table's columns and data types programmatically?

Best regards

    Hello Nildag

    For Java, the answer to your question is "Yes"; I don't know anything about Python so I'll leave that for others to judge.

    The topic is covered in the Help system - the topic is "Ole Automation and Add-ins" within "Customizing and Extending PowerDesigner > Scripting PowerDesigner".

    Take a look at the folder "C:\Program Files\SAP\PowerDesigner 16\Ole Automation" (assuming you've got PowerDesigner installed in the default location on your PC) for some examples.
