|Language / Framework||Supported||Supported Versions|
|Presentation layer frameworks|
|Java Server Faces (JSF)|
This includes the support of the following third-party JSF libraries:
JSPX documents (JSP in XML format) are not supported.
|Persistence layer frameworks||Hibernate|
|Other frameworks||Spring IoC|
- Function Points (transactions): a green tick indicates that OMG Function Point counting and Transaction Risk Index are supported
- Quality and Sizing: a green tick indicates that CAST can measure size and that a minimum set of Quality Rules exist
|Quality and Sizing|
|CAST AIP release||Supported|
Supported DBMS servers
This extension is compatible with the following DBMS servers:
|CAST AIP release||CSS2||Oracle||Microsoft|
|All supported releases|
|An installation of any compatible release of CAST AIP (see table above)|
Required third-party software
The following section lists any third-party software that may be required to successfully deliver source code and run an analysis with the JEE Analyzer extension:
|Install on workstation running DMT||Install on workstation running CMS|
The CAST Delivery Manager Tool (DMT) only requires the location of the JEE application for extraction and packaging.
Dependencies with other extensions
Some CAST AIP extensions require the presence of other CAST AIP extensions in order to function correctly. The JEE Analyzer extension requires that the following other CAST AIP extensions are also installed:
- Web services linker service (internal technical extension)

Avoid static field of type collection (7562)
When calculating a snapshot for applicationusing JSE 5.0, the Quality Rule "Avoid static field of type collection (7562)" does not list as "Very High Risk Objects" classes that are or inherit from a Generic collection. The Quality Rule lists only the non generic form of collections. For example static attributes of type java.util.Collection<E> will not be reported as a violation.
Persistence: Avoid table and column names that are too long (portability) (7706)
- JEE application using the Java Persistence API (JPA), e.g. in the form of Hibernate.
- A table or column name is not specified in the annotations of the JPA entity.
Symptoms: The JPA entity is not listed as a "Very High Risk" object in the results.
No link bookmarks generated
When Java Methods are defined inside a JSP file, no link bookmarks are generated (bookmarks can be seen in CAST Enlighten or in the Dynamic Link Manager). Example of a Java Method defined in a JSP file:
