Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect 16

Code Analyzer in Sparx Enterprise Architect 16

  • The Code Analyzer is a must-have tool when working with source code. It runs extremely complex queries on source code repositories at incredible speeds, when used locally or on a Sparx Intel cloud service.
  • The Code analyzer uses a high-level query language developed by Sparx systems. It also has a large vocabulary that allows code metrics to be queried quicker than traditional methods.
  • It is highly effective for large-scale code bases. This is because it allows the user to rigorously check any minor changes using a distinct cross-reference analysis of the code to verify that all effects are clearly visible.

Code Miner Framework

  • In Sparx Enterprise Architect 16, users can compile their code base into a Code Miner repository. Code Miner system provides instant and comprehensive access to existing source code information.
  • It enables complete access to all features of the original source code in a machine-readable manner. This is done by parsing all source code and storing the resulting “Abstract Syntax Tree” in a read-optimized database.
  • The main purpose of the Code miner is to give quick and effective access to data concealed within the source code.
  • The interfaces have been designed to be as simple as possible while ensuring optimal performance.
  • As a result, the system can assess the program’s structure, calculate metrics, track relationships, and even refactor the code.

What’s New in Sparx Enterprise Architect 16?

Sparx Intel Service

  • The Sparx Intel service program enables development projects and customers to learn more about the code bases and software frameworks they’re working with.
  • Multiple Enterprise Architect customers can use the service to access and (raise a query for the same data) query the same data from a variety of software domains and frameworks.
  • Clients of Enterprise Architect can use the service to have access to Intelli-sense in code editing and smart search results in search tools.
  • The Sparx Intel service is a division of Sparx Satellite Services. The service can be installed on a local network or in the cloud, plus it runs on Microsoft Windows.
  • The Sparx Intel Satellite service can be executed as a standalone process or as a Windows service.

Config File Format

NameWhen a service is named on the command line, the service with the matching name attribute will commence.
StatusThe service will be starting only when status = ON
LazyloadWhen lazyload is ‘true’, any Code Miner database will delay loaded until an Intel request is made to the service.
LoglevelDefines the level of information logged, as a combination of keywords { information, warning, error} separated by a ‘|’.  For example:
     loglevel= Information|warning|error
LogoutputSpecifies the full pathname of the log file to write to. For example:
DatabaseSpecifies the full path name of the Code Miner database to be loaded. For example:
Multiple ‘database’ directives are allowed, each specifying a different database.
AllowIdentifies the IP address that is permitted to connect to the service on the Port. For example:
     allow=172.160.*  (wildcards are allowed when the ‘network’
                                  the directive has a value of ‘network’ or ‘public’,
                                  but not ‘local’)
NetworkAllows service connections to be restricted.
local – the service can’t be heard on any connection other than localhost
network – when used with the wildcard ‘allow’ directives, it allows clients on an allowed IP address wild card to connect
pubic – allows any connection
ShowWhen ‘true’, the Console window for the service will be shown; the default is ‘false’.
PortThe Port on which the service will be heard.
