Column explanation

The columns situated to the right of the table below can be explained as follows:

  • Function Points (transactions): a green tick indicates that OMG Function Point counting and Transaction Risk Index are supported
  • Quality, Security and Sizing: a green tick indicates that CAST can measure technical size (LoC, Number of classes, Number of Programs, …) and that a minimum set of Quality and/or Security rules exist
  • CAST Imaging: a green tick indicates that this technology is supported in CAST Imaging.
  • Support method:
    • Indicates how the technology is supported: "out of the box" in CAST AIP, or via an official CAST AIP extension. Clickable links will take you direct to more detailed information about the technology support
    • Some extensions are in "alpha" and as such no official support is available from CAST.

Visual Basic

Microsoft VB 4 32 bits, VB 5, VB 6

Support for Microsoft Visual Basic is deprecated. This means that no further development nor bug fixes will be provided for this component. 

In addition, whilst analyses of small/medium sized Visual Basic will usually proceed without issue, larger applications may fail due to analyzer memory limitations. Please see the note here about 32bit/64bit compatibility: Visual Basic - Required third-party software.
