CAST provides the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard in a WAR file that must be deployed to a compatible Application Server (see Supported Platforms for information about Application Server support). However, CAST provides two WAR files that contain the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard, as follows:

WAR file nameDescription
CAST-AAD.warTraditional "standalone" WAR file containing only the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard (and also the CAST Rest API interface). This document describes the installation using this WAR file.
CAST-AAD-AED.war"Combined" WAR file containing both the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard and the CAST Application Engineering Dashboard (plus the CAST Rest API interface).

You are free to use whichever WAR file you prefer to deploy the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard (the requirements and prerequisites are identical for both WAR files), however if you are using both the CAST Application Analytics and CAST Application Engineering Dashboard, to fulfil (for example) a "risk and quality" use case, then it would make sense to take advantage of the combined CAST-AAD-AED.war file and deploy both dashboards from the same WAR file. If you do so, please note the following about using the "combined" WAR file:

Note that the application server can run on either the Linux or Windows operating systems (this document describes an installation in a Windows environment)

    Measurement Service

    A dedicated schema (the CAST Measurement Service) on a CAST Storage Service 2.

    To ensure compatibility you must only use a Measurement Service installed with a version of CAST AIP that exactly matches the major, minor or Service Pack release number of the CAST AAD WAR that you are installing.

    Info
    • No other RDBMS is supported for the Measurement Service.
    • You may need to install a standalone Measurement Service on a CAST Storage Service 2 (see Install CAST schemas) for example:
      1. you have installed only a "triplet" of CAST schemas (i.e. Management/Analysis/Dashboard Services)
      2. you have migrated from a previous version of CAST AIP where CAST Measurement Services were not in use (typically CAST AIP 7.0.x)
      3. your Management/Analysis/Dashboard Services are installed on Microsoft SQL Server / Oracle Server (which do NOT support the installation of a Measurement Service)
      4. you want to install multiple CAST Application Analytics Dashboards
    • Measurement Services can be Active for multiple Management Services (and thus data from multiple Dashboard Services can be aggregated in one Measurement Service).
    (tick)Dashboard Service(s)

    You can consolidate data into the Measurement Service from any number of Dashboard Service schemas (subject to the limit of 200 applications). The following Dashboard Services are supported:

    WAR file

    The CAST Application Analytics Dashboard is provided as a .WAR file (CAST-AAD.war) - it can be retrieved from the WARS folder located in the CAST installation folder:

    Info
    This document assumes you are using Apache Tomcat in a Windows environment to host the CAST Application Analytics Dashboard. If you are using IBM Websphere Application Server in a Linux environment, please see Appendix - AAD - AED - RestAPI - Deployment on IBM WebSphere Application Server.

    The installation process is divided into various steps:
