Does ARCAD track database changes?

If a table is modified can ARCAD list all the programs that are affect by the change?  A database dependency tracker.

 The ARCAD Observer module tracks file dependencies down to the field level, showing what programs use a field in a file and this is available from the iProject context menu.
The ARCAD Builder module accepts the changed source from the RTC build and uses the information from ARCAD Observer to build a list of all dependent programs and recompiles them as part of the build.

These functions are available for any kind of file source, PF, LF TABLE, INDEX or VIEW.
All we need is the DDL source to have an identifying attribute and if you don't currently have SQL for your DDL objects we can generate it into a sourcefile for you so you can import it into your repository.

We will have a short demo of Arcad Rational Power Pack SQL functionality in RTC available shortly on our youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/arcadsoftware
