Info

When working online, you can use this option to check whether the source code of your application violates the Architecture Model you have defined with the CAST Architecture Checker. This is the primary goal of the application - i.e. to identify links between objects that may violate your architecture definition.

...

An explanation of each option is listed below:

Column headingsCaller nameCalling object's short name as saved in the CAST Analysis Service
Caller typeCalling object's type as defined by CAST's meta-model.
Caller full NameCalling object's full name as saved in the CAST Analysis Service
Callee nameCalled object's short name as saved in the CAST Analysis Service
Callee typeCalled object's type as defined by CAST's meta-model.
Callee full nameCalled object's full name as saved in the CAST Analysis Service
Link typeType of link between the calling and called objects.
Dynamic LinkIndicates (true or false) whether the link between the objects is classed as "dynamic"
- see Validate Dynamic Links for more information about these type of links
.
Dynamic Info

Indicates the status of the dynamic link:

  • Inference Engine: The dynamic link is generated by the Inference Engine during the analysis.
  • Grep - Validated: The dynamic link is generated from "Grep" search and it has already been reviewed and validated as correct.
  • Grep - Not Reviewed: The dynamic link is generated from "Grep" search and it has not yet been reviewed.
Info
Dynamic links generated via "Grep" search and which have already been reviewed and ignored are not shown here as these links are not taken into account.


View sourceUse this option to view the source code of the selected object as stored in the CAST Analysis Service. The source code will be displayed in the Source Code tab (see Main window for more information).

Notes

- This option relies on the CAST Management Studio option Always upload Source Code for viewing in CAST Dashboard being set to true (this is the default position).

- Some items listed are in fact folder items or maybe part of a compiled JAR file (for example), and as such their source code is not visible.
