Glossary

TermDefinition
Action PlanAn action plan is a set of issues (i.e. violations requiring a remedial action)
Code FragmentA code fragment identifies a file contents extract.
Component Snapshot

A component is a source code item such as a class, a method, etc. The effective definition depends on the programming language and the technology of the analyzed application. Container of a component is either an application or a module. 

A defective component is a component in violation with a quality rule pattern.

Defects SummaryStatistics of defects impacting a business criterion for all components in the scope of a tree node
Diagnosis Findings

Diagnosis Findings pinpoint statements or properties of the defective component violating a quality rule pattern.

Diagnosis ValueA diagnosis findings reported as a value.
File ContentsRaw text of a source file.
OMG FunctionsData Function or Transaction as results of Function Point analysis (see "International Function Point Users Group")
Issue

An issue reports a remedial action in a context of an application snapshot.
Component and quality rule pattern match either a violation that should have been addressed in previous snapshots, or that will have to be addressed before next snapshot.

Remedial ActionA remedial action describes a user input request to correct a component regarding a quality rule-pattern.
TransactionA set of components involved in a transaction processing
Tree Node

Hierarchy relation of a component. This hierarchy relation depends on the programming language. For example, a node for a "Java Package" component, will be parent node of "Java Class" nodes.

WARNING: a component may be reached from several tree nodes

Violation

A violation identifies a defective component breaking a quality rule pattern.

IMPORTANT: For a given component and a given quality rule pattern there is 0 or 1 violation. If a component breaks a rule N times, then each occurrence is detailed into diagnosis findings structure with a value counter equals to N, and/or with N values, and/or with N code bookmarks.

A critical violation is a violation of a quality rule identified as critical regarding a technical criterion or a business criterion.

Risk assessment is based on defective components number compared to observable components number.

Violation

A violation identifies a component breaking a quality rule, with following properties:

  • a defective component 
  • a violated rule pattern
  • a set of findings to pinpoint the statements or properties of the defective component violating the rule pattern
  • a remedial action request or an exclusion request

For example, consider these 2 quality rules:

  1. "Methods must have appropriate JavaDoc @param tags"
  2. "Avoid calling the same paragraph with PERFORM and GO TO statements"  

For Quality Rule #1, diagnosis results are list of parameter names without documentation.

For Quality Rule #2; diagnosis results are list of "GO TO" statements. For each diagnosis result, a pair of diagnosis bookmarks locates the GO TO and the PERFORM statement.

Note: "findings" are also known as "associated values"

Note 2: "violation" is also known as "failed check"

Indexed Violation

This allows to filter violations with parameters, using a dedicated Lucene index.  

URL Templates & Parameters

HTTP ActionMedia TypeURI TemplatesDescription
PUTapplication/json

NB. This is restricted to ADMIN users

Create the Lucene index dedicated to violations search
GETapplication/json{Domain}/violations-indexReturn information about the index

Parameters

All parameters are optional. If mentioned, they will filter the violations accordingly.


URI Parameter

Description

Values

Default value

startRowSee Violation startRowan integer1
nbRowsSee Violation nbRowsan integer10
rule-pattern

See Violation rule-pattern


A combination of bqi:BCID, c:TCID, RuleID
(bqi means Base Quality Indicator, c means Contributor)

eg.
rule-pattern=(bqi:60014) means all QRs of BC “Efficiency”
rule-pattern=(c:61020) means all QRs of TC “Programming Practices - Modularity and OO Encapsulation Conformity”
rule-pattern=(7156) means the QR “Avoid Too Many Copy Pasted Artifacts”
rule-pattern=(bqi:60014,c:61020,7156) means the union of all above QRs

a combination of integers and stringsAll quality rules
weight

A combination of integer values ranged from 1 to 9

eg.
weight=(2) means all QRs with a weight=2
weight=(2,5) means all QRs with a weight=2 or a weight=5

IntegerAll weights
critical

true or false

eg.
critical=(true) means all critical QRs
critical=(false) means all non critical QRs

BooleanAll criticalities
business-criterion

See Violation business-criterion

an integerNone
statusSee Violation statusStringnone
object-status

The violated component status

Takes one or more values among "added", "updated", "unchanged"

Stringnone

Stringnone
modulesOne or more module namesStringnone
transactionsOne or more transaction idsIntegernone
modeSee Search Results modeStringnone
object-fullnameA string to search in a component's nameString none
order

Specify columns to be sorted on server side

asc means ascending order, desc means descending order.
Each sortable column is represented by a parameter value:

  • Actions or Exclusions: action-exclusion-status
  • Object name location: component-name
  • Rule: rule-pattern-name
  • Status: diagnosis-status

The use of parameter order is optional. Also, if you use this parameter, you can mention from one to four values in it.
Any not mentioned column value takes the default value. By default, violations are sorted by: PRI desc (if any), then by RULE_NAME asc, then by OBJECT_FULL_NAME asc, then by OBJECT_ID asc

Examples:

  • order=(asc(action-exclusion-status)) sorts the violations by ascending "Action/Exclusion": violations with remedial action, followed by violations with exclusion request, followed by all other violations
  • order=(desc(diagnosis-status)) sorts the violations by descending "Violation Status": "updated" violations, followed by "unchanged" violations, followed by "added" violations
  • order=(asc(action-exclusion-status),asc(component-name)) sorts the violations by ascending "Action/Exclusion", then by ascending "Object name"
  • order=(asc(action-exclusion-status),asc(rule-pattern-name),desc(component-name),asc(diagnosis-status))

NB Sorting works also with pagination. You can combine it with the startRow and nbRows parameters




NB. Any combination of the parameters rule-pattern, weight and critical gives the QRs verifying all the constraints.
For example: rule-pattern=(bqi:60014)&weight=(2,5)&critical=(true) means “all critical QRs of BC Efficiency with weight=2 or weight=5”
