Impacts of changes made in CAST AIP 8.3.11 on Quality Model results post upgrade

ASP Classic

SCRAIP-33921 - Always validate user input with Request variables (7448)

In previous releases of CAST AIP, no violations were being returned for this rule in situations which should violate the rule. This bug has now been resolved, therefore, after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.11 and the generation of a post-upgrade consistency snapshot on unchanged source, you may find that results for this rule have changed: increased number of violations, improving accuracy.

Other impacts of changes made in CAST AIP 8.3.11

Mainframe

Improved JCL Symbol support

In CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.11, the Mainframe Analyzer now supports:

  • JCL Symbols present in job DD cards
  • JCL Symbols present in job EXEC cards
  • Where JCL contains PROCS using parameters from a different JCL
  • Where JCL calls PROC using a parameter
  • JCL Symbols present in external PROCS

Therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP ≥ 8.3.11 and the generation of post upgrade consistency snapshot on unchanged source code, results may be impacted: more links between steps and programs, files and procedures, which will in turn improve the completeness of transaction call graphs used for function point counting.
