Starting AIP Console 1.26, if Mainframe source code is detected by AIP Console during delivery, the Mainframe extension will automatically be downloaded and installed replacing the Mainframe Analyzer embedded in AIP Core. If you do not want this to occur, you must blacklist the Mainframe extension using the file in on the AIP Node responsible for analyzing your application. See Blacklisting extensions for more information.


Dependencies with other extensions


Parametrization_Cobol.xml file

The extension is shipped with a parameterization XML file called Parametrization_Cobol.xml file - see Mainframe - Analysis configuration for more information about this. This file takes priority over the same file delivered in AIP Core (in Configuration\Parametrization\Cobol) therefore if you are moving to using the Mainframe Analyzer, you must ensure the following:

  • You must copy the file (or the rules in file) from the AIP Core installation folder Configuration\Parametrization\Cobol into the deployed extension on your AIP Node(s): %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\CAST\Extensions\com.castsoftware.mainframe.<version>-funcrel\configuration\parametrization\Cobol
  • If you upgrade to a newer release of the extension, and if you have modified the Parametrization_Cobol.xml file to add custom rules, you must ensure that you copy the file (or the rules) into the new extension installation location, e.g.:

    • Current extension installation location%PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\CAST\Extensions\com.castsoftware.mainframe.<version1>-funcrel\configuration\parametrization\Cobol
    • New extension installation location: %PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\CAST\Extensions\com.castsoftware.mainframe.<version2>-funcrel\configuration\parametrization\Cobol
