Analyzer Checker

Info

This feature is available for mainframe languages (Cobol, PL/I, RPG...).

In the case of a legacy modernization project, this feature helps you start preparing/checking the compliance of the Blu Age Velocity transformation engine within your project assets in order to build and fine-tune your modernization strategy during the calibration phase. To do so, your source code will be explored and parsed using Blu Age Analyzer.

Launch

In order to get started with Analyzer Checker, select Mod. Toolbox on the left menu and then click on Analyzer Checker.

Next, you need to specify your project's workpackages to be analyzed and select which Blu Age Analyzer version to use. The list of versions is permanently updated by the team when new releases are available. For customers who are used to work with Blu Age Analyzer, you can also upload a "metadata.ini" file to configure Blu Age Analyzer. Finally, click on the launch button to start the analysis.

The analysis duration depends on the number of files to be analyzed and their related programming languages. Once Blu Age Analyzer has finished analyzing your files, you will be notified by email. In the meantime you can use all the other BluInsights features.

Results

When the analysis is done, the results are shown as a table summarizing the main detected specificities of your project that need to be fine tuned.

On the top of the page, you can visualize general information about the analysis, like how many incompatibilities were found, which Blu Age Analyzer version has been used and when the last analysis took place.

The table gives you the main information for each file. It can be filtered by file name, total lines, languages, lines of code, workpackages , status, labels, etc.

In addition, you can take some further action on the results:

  1. Adjust column settings (select which columns to show or hide).

  2. Download artifacts generated by Blu Age Analyzer like the dependencies result and the metadata.ini file used for the analysis.

  3. Re-launch analysis on the project.

The files shown in the results can be edited through the Selection Properties in order to assign them, add labels, specify a workpackage, etc.

Dependencies result

Blu Age Analyzer generates a detailed dependencies analysis that will be leveraged by the Velocity transformation engine in order to perform the modernization. The result of this analysis can be downloaded and imported in the Blu Insights Dependencies page.

Info

When the results size exceed 100MB, they are too large to display but you can still download them.

Atlassian Jira export

By selecting errors, you can export those errors to a Jira compliant format. The content of the error is copied in your clipboard thus you can paste it directly in the description field of a Jira ticket.
