Methods must not be empty


    This rule states that any methods created in PowerBuilder should not be empty. This means that each method should have some code within it that performs a specific task. This ensures that the code is well-structured, easy to read, and maintainable. Additionally, it prevents the code from becoming cluttered and difficult to debug.

Key Benefits

  • Ensures Consistency: Methods must not be empty to ensure consistency across the codebase.
  • Reduces Complexity: Empty methods can cause complexity and confusion when trying to debug code.
  • Improves Readability: By avoiding empty methods, code becomes easier to read and understand.
  • Improves Performance: Empty methods can cause performance issues, so avoiding them can improve performance.
