Target audience:

CAST Administrators

Although this extension is officially supported by CAST, please note that it has been developed within the technical constraints of the CAST Universal Analyzer technology and to some extent adapted to meet specific customer needs. Therefore the extension may not address all of the coding techniques and patterns that exist for the target technology and may not produce the same level of analysis and precision regarding e.g. quality measurement and/or function point counts that are typically produced by other CAST AIP analyzers.

    Is there a support of Peoplesoft installed on SQL server?

    1. Hello,

       

      No I'm afraid not. Support is only for PeopleSoft schemas hosted on Oracle or DB2.
