  • The Constraint column shows whether the component will retrieve data for an "engineering" (AED) or "analytics" domain (AAD), and whether an extension needs to be installed in order to generate results (and if we need a specific version or RestAPI).
  • Due to backward compatibility, some components can have two different IDs, but the result will be the same.
  • The Mode column shows whether the component is targeted at an Application or a Portfolio or an Application - the relevant option should be chosen in Report Generator (see image below). CAST recommends always selecting an Application when the target domain is "engineering" and when using Application mode, as it will avoid empty results (this is because in an "analytics" domain, violations and components does not exist for an application).

BUBBLETechnical debt, TQI and Number of code lines.ApplicationNo
  • M=the module id

GRAPH;BUBBLE

GRAPH;BUBBLE;M=1241

If no module selected, result is for the application.

If a module is selected, result is for the module.

X axis is for TQI score, Y axis is for Technical Debt, and bubble's size is the Number of kLoc

CAST_COMPLEXITY

CAST provides a distribution of objects based on several distributions:

  • Algorithm Complexity (based on Cyclomatic complexity
  • SQL Complexity
  • Coupling (Fan in, Fan out)
  • Ratio of documentation
  • Size of components
ApplicationThis component is only relevant on an engineering databaseNoneGRAPH;CAST_COMPLEXITY

2 distribution curves for each of selected snapshot (current, previous).

X axis is the list of categories (low, average, high, very high). A category correspond to an interval of values of cast complexity calculated for the object

Y axis is the number of objects in the categories

CAST_DISTRIBUTION

CAST provides a distribution of objects based on the chosen distribution.

Application

This graph is relevant only on engineering databases, it is empty on analytics databases.

  • PAR=distribution id (by default 65501, and in this case this is the same graph than CAST_COMPLEXITY)

List of distributions :

  • 65105 : Size Distribution
  • 65350 : Coupling distribution
  • 65501 : Cyclomatic complexity distribution
  • 65601 : 4GL complexity distribution
  • 65701 : OO complexity distribution
  • 65801 : SQL complexity distribution
  • 66010 : Reuse by call distribution
  • 66015 : Class complexity distribution (WMC)
  • 66020 : Class Fan-Out distribution
  • 66021 : Class Fan-In distribution
  • 67001 : Cost complexity distribution
  • 67020 : distribution of violations to critical diagnostic-based metrics per cost complexity
  • 67030 : distribution of defects to critical diagnostic-based metrics per cost complexity
GRAPH;CAST_DISTRIBUTION;PAR=65501

2 distribution curves for each of selected snapshot (current, previous).

X axis is the list of categories (low, average, high, very high). A category correspond to an interval of values of cast complexity calculated for the object

Y axis is the number of objects in the categories

GENERIC_GRAPH

A Graph component is built based on a table structure. The idea is to fill data into the table of the graph to populate it automatically


ApplicationThe selection of metrics by standard quality tag name should only be used for an application where the extension “Quality Standards Support” is installed. If not, no metrics will be selected and graph will be empty

COL1=A,COL11=B,ROW1=C,ROW11=D,A=a,B=b,C=c|d,D=e|f|g

where A,B,C and D are one of the axis above

and a, b, c, d, e, f, g is one or multiple tags of the axis
