Summary: this pages describes all analysis configuration options that are available for the Visual Basic technology.

Using AIP Console

AIP Console exposes the Technology configuration options once a version has been accepted/imported, or an analysis has been run. Click Visual Basic Technology to display the available options:

Technology settings are organized as follows:

Settings are initially set according the information discovered during the source code discovery process when creating a version. You should check that these auto-determined settings are as required and that at least one Analysis Unit exists for the specific technology.

Default HandlingDuring the analysis, when this option is selected, the analyzer will take into account predefined constants and any #Const directives contained in the project.
Compare references by filenameIf you select this option, the analyzer will compare ActiveX references in the .VBP file using the filename only. If the option is left blank, references are compared using the full path instead.

Using CAST Management Studio

Introduction to analysis configuration options

Auto-configuration validation

Technology / Application level

Using the Technology level or Application level options, validate the settings for Visual Basic packages. Make any update as required. These settings apply to the Technology or Application as a whole (i.e. all Analysis Units):

Analysis Unit level

To inspect the auto-generated analysis configuration, you should review the settings in each Analysis Unit - they can be accessed through the Application editor:

Technology options

The available options for configuring an analysis are described below. Note that some options are not available at specific levels (Technology/Application/Analysis Unit):

Source Settings

This tab shows the location of each type of source code in the PowerBuilder Analysis Unit - this is determined automatically by the CAST Delivery Manager Tool. You should, however, review the configuration and make any changes you need:

Project pathThe file based location of the corresponding project. This field is read-only. When the field contains User defined, this indicates that the Analysis Unit has been defined manually instead of automatically following the use of the CAST Delivery Manager Tool.
Target

Indicates the path to the .VBP file for analysis purposes. If this Analysis Unit is automatically defined, then this field will already be populated. You can choose a different source code location (use Browse) - or use the Reset button to re-populate the field with the information from the parent Application.

Analysis

The settings in this tab govern how the source code is handled by the analyzer:

Custom Environment Profiles

Only visible at Application and Analysis Unit level. See Visual Basic - Environment Profiles for more information about this option.
