A bug has been discovered which is causing the creation of "unresolved method objects" for methods declared in classes. The analysis log also contains corresponding warning entries about these unresolved objects. This bug has now been fixed and after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.7 and the generation of a post-upgrade consistency snapshot on the same source code, results may be impacted: increased number of method objects and removal of warnings in the analysis log due to unresolved objects.
SCRAIP-33178 - Deleted objects in transaction call-path, but transaction status is unchanged
A bug has been discovered which is causing the transaction status in the CAST Transaction Configuration Center to remain as unchanged, even when objects are deleted from the call path. This was due to the fact that a checksum value was never calculated for specific Mainframe objects (JCL Job, JCL Data Set, and JCL Step) therefore any changes to them were effectively ignored by CAST AIP. This behaviour has now been changed and checksum values are now calculated for JCL Jobs, JCL Data Sets, and JCL Steps, therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.3.7 and the generation of a post-upgrade consistency snapshot on the same source code, results may be impacted.
