Technology support changes

Please see Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x for more detailed discussion of this subject.

CAST Application Engineering Dashboard

Education feature

The CAST Application Engineering Dashboard now features the ability to add violations (objects) to an "Education list" (see CAST-AED - Education) to highlight specific issues that may not be corrected, but require tracking, monitoring. In essence the Education list:

  • enables an Architect or Technical Lead to identify the main issues in an Application and add them to the list to "educate" his team about the Quality Rules related to the violation
  • the violations in the list may not necessarily be corrected because they may be too costly, however, the Architect or Technical Lead can use the list to explain to his development team the issues that exist (i.e. the violations can be shown) and how to avoid the issues in the future (i.e. by highlighting the associated Quality Rule documentation)
  • violations in the Education list can be configured to be automatically added to the CAST-AED - Action Plan when the next snapshot is generated.
  • links to the violations can be sent to development team members directly from the Education list to "share and promote" best practices or how to adhere to specific Quality Rules.

Change Language option

The top user menu now has an additional drop down menu item called "Change Language". This allows a user to change the language of the text items in the dashboard, providing an administrator has configured the language:

Export to Excel

It is now possible to export data to Excel file at Violation level in the Application Investigation and Transaction Investigation views, for example:

CAST Management Studio

CLI

ConfigurePlatformPreferences

The option jobLogRootPath has been removed and can no longer be used with the command ConfigurePlatformPreferences. Please use logRootPath instead. See Automating CAST Management Studio tasks.

CAST Transaction Configuration Center

CLI

CAST is now delivering a bespoke executable for running automated CAST Transaction Configuration tasks. Previously, command line tasks could be run using CAST-TransactionConfig.exe, however, CAST highly recommends that all automated command line tasks now use CAST-TransactionConfig-CLI.exe.
