Summary: This document provides basic information about the extension providing jQuery support for Web applications.
- This new version optimizes memory consumption.
This extension provides support for jQuery.
In what situation should you install this extension?
If your Web application contains jQuery source code and you want to view these object types and their links with other objects, then you should install this extension:
- Creates jQuery events and access points to services:
- jQuery events: they represent a query in DOM tree
- jQuery access points to web services: CAST_JQuery_GetResourceService, CAST_JQuery_PutResourceService, CAST_JQuery_PostResourceService
- Links from the jQuery access points to services to different servers written in other languages are then created by the WBSlinker extension (an internal extension).
- The following declarations will create a jQuery event:
- The following declaration will create objects "call to web service" (these calls are resolved to web service operations on the server side for the following supported frameworks: Node.js, JAX-RS, Spring MVC:
Default entry point is the HTML file content.
Supported jQuery versions
- 1.0 - 3.0
- 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|
- You should ensure that you configure the extension to NOT analyze the back end web client part of a .NET or J2EE application.
- If the back end web client part of a .NET or J2EE application is analyzed with the jQuery extension and with the native .NET/J2EE analyzers, then your results will reflect this - there will be duplicate objects and links (i.e. from the analyzer and from the extension) therefore impacting results and creating erroneous Function Point data.
