FRAME_PORTAL_TECHNOLOGY_VIEW

This view is designed to deliver the information about a technology from a single application necessary to check its latest status regarding Rule Compliance, the trends of each Rule Compliance category and the compliance level to diagnostic-based metrics whose "critical contribution" option has been set.

This view requires access to at least one Application.

Left hand panel

Please see the section Left hand panel in Using the CAST Engineering Dashboard for more information about this.

The left hand panel is enriched in this context so as to show all Technical Size indicator values for the current technology:

Main window panels

Four main panels are available:

Current Overall Status (systemic approach)Visually displays the latest Rule Compliance grades (and the previous ones - from the previous snapshot). It also displays as a table the latest Rule Compliance grades, along with the evolution (in %) of the latest delivery (I.e., since the previous snapshot), and since the baseline (I.e., since the first available snapshot). This panel is designed to help detect overall quality evolutions, with a more technical approach than the Health Factor (because this profile is more about ensuring the compliance with the rules, whatever the business impact). Hyperlinks lead to Investigation - Quality Model Drilldown for details of the Rule Compliance grades and to Indicator Monitor - Benchmark for the comparison of the Rule Compliance grades since the previous snapshot or since the first available snapshot.
Rule Compliance - Trends (trending approach)

Displays the evolution of the Rule Compliance grades (TQI values) over time against the volume of the application (counted as kLOCs). The panel is designed to help detect dangerous drifts and can also help detect impacts of large code addition/deletion on quality.

Critical violations (violation focus)Displays the list of rules tagged as "critical contribution" in the Assessment Model with violations, together with the number of these violations and the resulting grade as a visual gauge. As a default, it displays the critical violations contributing to the TQI. Alternatively (using the drop down list), it can display those that contribute to Rule Compliance (Architectural Design, Programming Practices, Documentation). It also displays the list of such rules with the largest variation on the number of violations.
Rule Compliance - Further detailsDisplays as default content the technical criteria that contribute to the application TQI. Alternatively (using the drop down list), it can display the technical criteria that contribute to the Rule Compliance (Architectural Design, Programming Practices, Documentation). It also helps identify the technical area where quality is at higher risk.
