CAST Imaging Release: Blueprinting with Depth and Breadth


Architecture Coverage and Microservices

CAST Imaging now automatically recognizes microservices architecture. Modern systems in DevOps are composed of multiple microservices and loosely coupled components, made of Cloud services, APIs, application components split in unitary services, and other external services. With the new release CAST Imaging now:

  • Offers visibility, navigation and blueprinting option for systems using varied microservice components
  • Recognizes and maps links for marketplace services such as AWS Lambda, AWS S3, Spring Netflix services
  • Recognizes and maps links for storage systems such as Couch DB, AWS Dynamo DB, etc.

Drill-down to Methods and Objects Faster

We continue to enhance CAST Imaging to accelerate getting to insights of application. The discovery of complex applications is becoming easier, from general architecture and main technology layers down to the most granular details. With the latest CAST Imaging release, users can:

  • Drill-down to method details on objects
  • Rapidly and accurately identify relevant methods and properties, to fully understand the application structure without opening source code


The CAST Imaging Product team remains open to feedback and suggestions from customers on ways to improve CAST Imaging on any of the following objectives:

  • Accelerate understanding of application
  • Accelerate learning for newcomers entering development projects
  • Enable architects for faster application refactoring.

  This report describes the effects of different industrial factors on  structural quality. Structural quality differed across technologies with COBOL  applications generally having the lowest densities of critical weaknesses,  while JAVA-EE had the highest densities. While structural quality differed  slightly across industry segments, there was almost no effect from whether the  application was in- or outsourced, or whether it was produced on- or off-shore.  Large variations in the densities in critical weaknesses across applications  suggested the major factors in structural quality are more related to  conditions specific to each application.

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
