To get started with CAST Architecture Checker you first need to decided which type of model you would like to create:
- an Architecture Model to check that an Application adheres to a specific architecture. Architecture Models can be re-used during an analysis with the CAST Management Studio or the CAST AIP Console.
- a Quality Rule Model to check that an Application adheres to a specific rule. Quality Rule Models can be exported as CAST AIP extensions and then installed and integrated with the CAST AIP Assessment Model.
