Source Extractors - PLSQL Extractor - Information - How to find the version of an Extractor


If the version of extractor is not compatible with the Cast AIP version, then there are chances of errors in the analysis.

For example: if you use extractor of Cast version 7.3.8 with CAST AIP 7.3.5 then you will end up with many errors in the analysis, because the extractor can extract the source code which CAST AIP may not be able to handle.

Steps to find the version of Extractor


  1. Go to : <CAST INSTALLATION FOLDER>\<CAST VERSION> \DeliveryManagerTool\standardPlugins\dmtdevsqlcastextractor-1.0
  2. Copy CAST-DatabaseExtractor.jar in a Temp folder (C:\temp for instance)
  3. Unzip it.
  4. Search for the CASTDatabase.config file
  5. Open the CASTDatabase.config file with Notepad++ and on the top of the file, you can find the extractor Version. For example, in the screen shot the Version is 2.6
  6. Look for the Cast Extractor version in official documentation to know whether it is compatible with CAST AIP version. 

In any case, if the Extractor used is the one which was released after the Cast AIP version, then it is not supported by Cast AIP which can bring up inconsistencies.
