IBM Application Delivery Intelligence 5.0.4

What's new

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence (ADI) V5.0.4 combines structured and unstructured data to further accelerate digital transformation. The following new features and enhancements are added.

  • Technical Preview: Business Rule Discovery and API Discovery. In the new web-based interface, the enterprise architects can build an inventory of business and IT artifacts by using ADI's capability of business rule discovery and Application Programming Interface (API) discovery. With the inventory, the enterprise architects can manage and collaborate on the candidate list of related artifacts for any set of business terms and terms that are related to the APIs.
  • Color-coded heat map on the Artifact Composition graph. ADI added a Heat Map feature to the Artifact Composition graph, which plots a color corresponding to the state of a particular metric over the artifact node in the graph. The heat map indicates the compliance of artifacts in relation to the defined thresholds of their metrics, including Cyclomatic Complexity, Maintainability Index, Unreachable Code, and Code Coverage.
  • Enhanced user experience for analysis with a more personalized view of the analysis data. You can pinpoint areas of concern or interest for a specific role on the dashboard. Hence, ADI users with different roles can effectively collaborate on their areas of interest.
  • Enhanced support for graphical artifact interdependency analysis beyond CICS applications. By using Application Discovery (AD) as a provider, you can collect, display and correlate data about more enterprise applications such as the batch applications.

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence (ADI) V5.0.4.2 adds the following new features and enhancements.

  • Code coverage baseline builds
    In the previous releases of ADI, you can compare a build with only its direct predecessor build. Now ADI adds a baseline concept that enables the comparison of any predecessor builds to a baseline. You can investigate coverage and source changes between a build and any of its baselines.
  • Improved scalability of manual code coverage data collections
    ADI improves the scalability of manual code coverage data collections by separating the upload of large code coverage result files and the computation of coverage metrics, which are now done asynchronously in a background task.
  • Various user experience enhancements
    ADI adds the following enhancements to improve user experience:
    • An updated organization of dashboard viewlets that use tabs instead of long scrolls.
    • Updated reports that represent code coverage metrics.
    • An improved Search function inside the code coverage files table.
    • The ability to preserve many of your personal choices, such as code coverage filters that are used or builds and baselines that are inspected recently.
  • Notifications capability
    ADI adds a Notifications capability to inform you of the key events, such as the successful collection of new data or the error that happened during automated tasks.
  • Program level static analysis trends
    You can display and compare the metric trends for any program node in a static analysis composition graph.
  • Refined COBOL keyword discovery (Tech Preview)
    The new search patterns for COBOL improves the discovery of business terms and API discovery related keywords. You can filter on the discovered keywords that are extracted from MOVE statements and copybooks.
  • Code snippets for business terms (Tech Preview)
    You can now drag the mouse to select and create a code snippet in the search results viewer and select the business terms to relate to the snippet. Snippets can now also be exported with the terms to a CSV file.
  • Activity viewer (Tech Preview)
    ADI introduces an event viewlet to show activities of you and other users that you are collaborating with for identifying business terms and APIs.

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence 5.0.3

What's new

IBM Application Delivery Intelligence (ADI) V5.0.3 incrementally makes performance, usability, and scalability improvements to the core capabilities of ADI around test optimization and code coverage.

  • Improved scalability. By lazy loading and high performance dynamic analysis roll-up, ADI 5.0.3 now is able to load tens of thousands of files and flow points for analysis. The refactored warehouse schema removes limitations on test-file relationship.
  • Improved test optimization workflow. ADI 5.0.3 makes it easier to roll-up test recommendations for a specific set of changes. ADI also improves its sorting and filtering function that allows users to see only changed files with insufficient code coverage.
  • Enhanced personalization and scoping. ADI 5.0.3 provides views for users to collaborate the setting of their team's favorites for analysis. It introduces file and package level scoping which gives ability to teams to see code coverage results as low as 0.0001%, if they are just starting out on the code coverage journey with only a few tests.

ADI 5.0.3 takes the root cause analysis support introduced in 5.0.2 to the next level by providing users with the capability to do visual interdependence analysis of any artifacts. In this way, ADI allows users to plan changes and reduce their root cause analysis time, which helps them plan changes to the artifacts effectively.

  • Graphical program interdependency analysis. It allows users to quickly perform change impact analysis, size the maintenance effort, and help improve the understanding of their artifacts.
  • Free search for programs and transactions to discover usage. It guides new developers on how and where the programs and transactions are used to help them understand their application landscape quickly.
  • First step in making ADI the web platform for AD. With ADI 5.0.3, users can do program interdependence analysis without needing to install a rich UI for impact analysis. Users can also correlate with other non-static data sources such as runtime performance data and code coverage results.
