We’ve had dependency analysis in Understand for many years and have consolidated it into a functional area of the tool, improved what it does, and also added a few dependency views.
The Dependency Analysis capability provides these features:
Lots of Data
To calculate dependency we examine every refererence 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.
See the dependencies for any file, directory or architecture by right clicking on the entity and selecting ”View Dependencies” from the context menu.
The Dependency Browser then pops up, by default docked to the bottom of the interface.
The browser has many options available to customize the window to your needs, and once you have it like you want, you can export the dependencies to a csv file.
