Summary: This section gives you the list of programming languages/technologies and the versions of these technologies that are officially supported by CAST, whether "out of the box in CAST AIP, or via an official CAST AIP extension.

Column explanation

The columns situated to the right of the table below can be explained as follows:

  • Function Points (transactions): a green tick indicates that OMG Function Point counting and Transaction Risk Index are supported
  • Quality, Security and Sizing: a green tick indicates that CAST can measure technical size (LoC, Number of classes, Number of Programs, …) and that a minimum set of Quality and/or Security rules exist
  • CAST Imaging: a green tick indicates that this technology is supported in CAST Imaging.
  • Support method:
    • Indicates how the technology is supported: "out of the box" in CAST AIP, or via an official CAST AIP extension. Clickable links will take you direct to more detailed information about the technology support
    • Some extensions are in "alpha" and as such no official support is available from CAST.

Spring Boot

Spring Boot is Spring's convention-over-configuration solution for creating stand-alone, production-grade Spring-based Applications. Therefore, the underlying Spring frameworks in the Application should always be qualified in order to understand the level of support that CAST AIP can provide. No Spring Boot specific objects or links will be created during an analysis and therefore no Spring Boot specific transactions will be available.
