The Technical Browser contains a visual representation of the Knowledge Base. All objects, components and directories that form the source code of an application that has been analyzed and stored in the Knowledge Base are represented hierarchically down to the lowest sub-object level. Both client and server side objects are displayed.
Items displayed at the root level represent an analysis (Analysis is the term used in Analysis Manager to describe a set of parameters that define how an application's source code is examined. When the parameters have been defined and subsequently run, the results are stored in the Knowledge Base) - all items contained within are relative to that analysis and hence the original application.
You can expand/collapse an item by either double-clicking it or by clicking the "+" or "-" box once.
