Architecture Models view
This section provides a detailed description of the Architecture Models view. This view essentially provides a means for you to manage your Architecture Models as part of CAST's Architecture Checker feature - please see CAST Architecture Checker for more information.
Architecture Models shortcut menus
The following shortcut menu items are available in the view:
|Edit||Use this option to modify the properties of your Architecture Model. The Architecture model editor will be displayed.|
|Remove||Please see Remove.|
|Verify|| This option will carry out a verification check on the selected item in the current editor. This means that the CAST Management Studio will check that all dependent items are present - for instance a User Defined Module should have one Object Filter and an Application should have an Analysis Service, a Source Code Repository and a Technology). |
In addition the validation check will also take into account the external context - for instance, for components that rely on files, a check will be made to ensure that the files exist and are valid (e.g.: .CASTArchitect files in the Architecture Model editor).
Results are displayed in the Verification view.
