To calculate dependency we examine every reference in an Understand project. We then build up dependency data structures for every file and architecture. This includes the nature of the dependency and the references that caused the dependency.  All of this data is instantly available for quick exploration and browsing or it can be exported in matrix form for files, architectures, or entities.

The Dependency Analysis capability provides these features:

  • Rapid browsing of dependencies for files and Understand architectures
  • List “dependent”, and “dependent on” entities, for files and architectures
  • Spreadsheet export of dependency relationships
  • A Dependency Browsing dock that shows all dependency information
