AFP — how does the “model” address reconciliation?

  • Key: AFP-7

  • Summary:

    7. Today many applications are written with more than one “application language,” scripts, XML, and DML. When the same “operation” is being performed in different languages how does the “model” address reconciliation? An automated counting procedure would need to eliminate duplicate functions IF the algorithm could identify them. Identification is not particularly difficult, but determining if those similar (or duplicate) code segments are indeed duplicative and not merely slightly different could be a challenge within a language and more so across a potpourri of languages.

  • Disposition: Resolved — AFP 1.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    This is a vendor implementation issue and only vendors that can reintegrate the metadata from the parses of several languages in developing an abstract representation of the application can identify and reconcile multiple instances of the same function. Each vendor will have to make their own claim about how they achieve reconciliation and provide a demonstration to clients who ask this important question.
