Summary: This section describes how to prepare and deliver the source code of your Visual Basic application.
Information about discovery
Discovery is a process that is actioned during the delivery process. CAST will attempt to automatically identify "projects" within your application using a set of predefined rules. This discovery process also allows CAST AIP to set the initial analysis configuration settings explained in Visual Basic - Analysis configuration. Discoverers are currently embedded in CAST AIP Core:
You should read the relevant documentation for each discoverer (provided in the link above) to understand how the source code will be handled.
Source code delivery using CAST AIP Console
- Supported in AIP Console v. ≥ 1.23.0.
- See Application onboarding for more information.
AIP Console expects either a ZIP/archive file or source code located in a folder configured in AIP Console. You should include in the ZIP/source code folder all Visual Basic source code:
- Any associated files.
CAST highly recommends placing the files in a folder dedicated to Visual Basic. If you are using a ZIP/archive file, zip the folders in the "temp" folder - but do not zip the "temp" folder itself, nor create any intermediary folders:
