    Presentation Overview

    Our August meeting will introduce the CAST Application Mining Suite. CAST VB Miner and AppViewer produce graphic representations of Visual Basic applications' source code, identifying all VB objects/COM objects and their interdependencies (static and dynamic links) and providing the developer with information on the application's inner structure.

    Some benefits of using the Suite include:

    • No longer any need to produce technical documentation by hand.
    • Avoid time-consuming and boring tasks for developers, such as searching through code
    • Easily understand complex inner workings of an application.
    • Simulate the impact of a proposed change.
    • See which COM components are used by the application.
    • Find all explicit and implicit references to an object in seconds.
