Summary: This document provides technical information about the extension called "Module Definition Types" (com.castsoftware.moduledefinitiontypes).

Extension ID

com.castsoftware.moduledefinitiontypes

What's new?

Please see Module Definition Types - 1.0 - Release Notes for more information.

Description

This extension categorizes all modules defined (whether manually or automatically) in Console/CAST Management Studio and gives them a value as follows:

Unassigned-1

Full Content

1
Union Content2
IFPUG3
Per Analysis Unit4
User Defined5
Per Technology6

This value is stored for each Application (in the Analysis schema) and the information is used by other CAST processes and tools, as listed below:

CAST Imaging ≥ 2.11

During the export/import process of Application data into CAST Imaging ≥ 2.11, this information is used to ensure that Per technology modules are never included in the export and therefore never appear in CAST Imaging. These type of modules are automatically created in Console (unless a different strategy is chosen manually) and are very often very large (i.e. contain a lot of data). Because these modules are large, they often do not provide much value during investigation.

Download and installation instructions

The Module Definition Types extension will be installed automatically only when using Console ≥ 2.4. In any other situation you must download and install it "manually":

A new analysis/snapshot must be performed after installation to ensure the extension is executed. In addition, a new import into CAST Imaging using ≥ 2.11 must be actioned so that the categorization provided by the extension can be exploited in CAST Imaging.

Configuration instructions

None.
