In what situation should you install this extension?
The analyzer will be used to handle HTML files:
- creates one "HTML5 Source Code" object that is the caller of html to js links and a transaction entry point
- broadcasts tags and attributes/values to other CAST extensions such as AngularJS. Other extensions will not need to analyze the files themselves.
- creates "functions"
The analyzer also provide the following features:
- Automated Function Point counting.
- Checksum, number of code lines, number of comment lines, comments are present.
- Local and global resolution is done when function is called directly through its name (inference engine resolution is not available).
- For global resolution, caller is searched in all .js files. If only one callee is found, a link is created. If several callees are found, the analyzer watches inclusions in html files to see if it can filter the callee. It nothing is found in html files to filter, links are created to all possible callees.
- Files whose names end with .min.js and Spec.js (tests) are ignored.
|Note that by default some files are automatically excluded from the analysis, typically third-party frameworks which are not required. Please see the filters.json file located at the root of the extension folder for a complete list of default exclusions.|
HTML5 source code: it represents the whole HTML file content.
|HTML (1 to 5)|
|CSS (1 to 3)|
- 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

- You should ensure that you configure the extension to NOT analyze the back end web client part of a .NET or J2EE application.
