What's New in IBM Security AppScan Source version 9.0:

  • New platform and integration solution support
    As of AppScan Source Version 9.0, these operating systems are supported:
    • Microsoft Windows 8 Professional and Enterprise
    • Microsoft Windows 8.1 Professional and Enterprise
    • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter, Standard, and Essentials Editions
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux Version 6 Update 5

    In addition:
    • OS X: The AppScan Source for Development Eclipse plug-in is now supported on OS X:
      • Eclipse Versions 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 4.2, 4.2.x, 4.3, 4.3.1, and 4.3.2 project files and workspaces (Java™ and IBM® Worklight® only) can be scanned - and the AppScan Source for Development (Eclipse plug-in) can be applied to these versions of Eclipse.
      • Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® Software (RAD) Versions 9.0 and 9.0.1 project files and workspaces (Java and IBM Worklight only) can be scanned - and the AppScan Source for Development (Eclipse plug-in) can be applied to RAD Versions 9.0 and 9.0.1.
      • You can now scan an Xcode project from the AppScan Source for Development Eclipse plug-in.
    • Windows and Linux: Rational Application Developer for WebSphere Software (RAD) Versions 8.5.5 and 9.0.1 project files and workspaces (Java and IBM Worklight only) can be scanned - and the AppScan Source for Development (Eclipse plug-in) can be applied to RAD Versions 8.5.5 and 9.0.1.
    • Eclipse Versions 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 project files and workspaces (Java and IBM Worklight only) can be scanned - and the AppScan Source for Development (Eclipse plug-in) can be applied to these versions of Eclipse.
    • Rational Team Concert™ Versions 4.0.5 and 4.0.6 are now supported defect tracking systems.
    • Xcode 5.0 for Objective-C (for iOS applications only) is now a supported compiler on OS X.
  • IBM Worklight integration
    The AppScan Source for Development Eclipse plug-in now integrates with IBM Worklight. When AppScan Source for Development and IBM Worklight are installed to your Eclipse-based environment, you have the option to scan Worklight projects, applications, environments, and HTML files.
  • Using AppScan Source for Development without an AppScan Enterprise Server
    As of AppScan Source Version 9.0, the AppScan Source for Development plug-ins can be used without AppScan Enterprise Server. In server mode, you connect to the server to run scans and access shared data, just as in previous product versions. In the new local mode, AppScan Source for Development runs without ever connecting to a server - and you cannot access shared items such as filters, scan configurations, and custom rules.

    Important: If you are using a floating license in local mode, you must still have a connection to the license server to be able to use AppScan Source for Development.
  • Optional AppScan Source for Development Eclipse plug-in quality component
    As of AppScan Source Version 9.0, the AppScan Source for Development Eclipse plug-in quality component is provided as an optional installation.
  • Floating license option for AppScan Source for Automation
    As of AppScan Source Version 9.0, AppScan Source for Automation has a floating license option.
  • Enhanced and new scanning support
    • Performance is now improved when scanning JavaScript.
    • Android KitKat (4.4) is now supported.
    • AppScan Source now supports scanning applications that use these application programming interfaces (API): Worklight, Cordova, HTML5, JQuery, and JQuery Mobile.
  • Windows 7 machines that are configured to use the United States Government Configuration Baseline (USGCB)
    AppScan Source supports scanning applications on Windows 7 machines that are configured with the USGCB specification.

    Note: On machines that are configured with the USGCB specification, AppScan Source does not support defect tracking system integration with HP Quality Center or Rational ClearQuest®.
  • Quality analysis feature deprecation in Version 9.0

    The Java and C++ code quality analysis features are deprecated as of AppScan Source Version 9.0. These features can still be used in this version, but will not be supported or available in future versions.



Security AppScan Source licensing:

Security AppScan Source provides a License Manager utility that is used for loading and updating license information on your client machine. This utility allows you to view your current license status - or you can use the utility to activate the product by importing a nodelocked license file or by using a floating license on a license server. Nodelocked licenses are tied to individual machines - while floating licenses can be checked out for use on different client machines.

The License Manager utility can be opened from the product installation wizard after installation is complete.

Security AppScan Source licenses are obtained from the IBM Rational License Key Center. For detailed information about obtaining licenses and license activation, see How to obtain and apply licenses for Security AppScan Source products and the Activating the software section of the Security AppScan Source Installation and Administration Guide.
