There is that rare moment in a basketball game when a player has the right combination of variables and the ball sails through the net without touching the rim. Recently, David Consulting Group (DCG) assembled a great team to work on a .NET project for a branch of the United States military, and CAST was pleased to be included in a project that achieved that proverbial “swish.”

The organization was looking to validate its vendor-designed .NET framework with an external assessment of its software code, so DCG worked with CAST and Alliance Global, a software development firm that builds tools to perform code reviews using advanced application analytic tools.

The CAST Application Intelligence Platform (AIP) was used to analyze the framework and perform a comprehensive health check, identifying potential deficiencies and flaws in the code. To find out the results of the analysis and see a sample output, check out DCG’s latest case study: David Consulting Group Utilizes CAST’s Application Intelligence Platform to Analyze and Assess a Third Party, Custom .NET Framework for the Military.

  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.
