Summary: this page lists:
The changes listed assume that an upgrade from CAST AIP 8.2.9 to CAST AIP 8.2.10 has taken place.
Each CAST AIP release provides new features which improve the value of the platform and justify an upgrade. However, there are a number of changes or improvements which can impact the measurement results/grades:
Below is a list of changes made to the current release of CAST AIP that are known to cause impacts to results. You can also consult Case Study - Measurement changes after upgrade for selected customer applications which provides a more detailed analysis based on a few sample applications.
The following is a general description of the steps that should be taken in order to compare pre and post upgrade results:
Grades at Business Criteria level
Lines of code
Step 4: Compare the data functions and transactions across the source Analysis Service and the target Analysis Service post upgrade.
False positive violations to this Quality Rule were being returned where a file was opened and correctly closed. This behaviour has been changed and false positive violations to the Quality Rule are no longer displayed when this situation occurs, therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.2.10 and the generation of a post upgrade snapshot, results may differ: the number of false positive results will be reduced.
A bug has been discovered which is causing a discrepenacy between the KLOC values and the number of files before and after an upgrade. This bug has now been fixed, therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.2.9 and the generation of a post upgrade snapshot, results may differ: KLOC and number of files values may differ.
A bug has been discovered which causes missing links for method parameters passed in lambda expressions in Java: only links from the lambda expression to the method parameter are identified, direct links from the method (where the lambda expression belongs) to the method parameter are not found. This bug has been fixed, therefore after an upgrade to CAST AIP 8.2.10 and the generation of a post upgrade snapshot, results may differ: the number of links between objects may increase (this may also impact Quality Rule results and Transactions).
