  • Step 1: Take a snapshot (including a source code analysis) with the previous release of CAST AIP before upgrading to the new release of CAST AIP
    • Check the list of applications to be analyzed, the list of files per application and list of SQL objects from the Analysis Service.
  • Step 2: Compare the source code in version 1 (before upgrade) with the source code in the new version 2 (after upgrade)
    • Compare the list of analyzed files, list of files per application and list of SQL objects between the two Analysis Services
  • Step 3: Compare the results of the application analysis and snapshot post upgrade. This can be done by comparing the snapshots available in the Dashboard Service to find the differences in:
    • Quality rules
    • Violations

    • Grades at Business Criteria level

    • Function Points

    • Transactions

    • Lines of code

  • Step 4: Compare the data functions and transactions across the source Analysis Service and the target Analysis Service post upgrade.

While nothing specific has been done to fix this issue, related AIP source code has been modified and the issue is unlikrely to now re-occur.
