Can you imagine the impact of your 4GL code?

A visual representation of how the code changes affect and spread
into your whole application would definitely help you.
CrossWay is a custom-built tool with the main purpose of gathering the files’ cross-reference information starting with a certain file within the 4GL code of an OpenEdge application and producing a graphical output, easy to be read and understood, both from a technical and a functional perspective.

Being able to visualize ahead the impact of changing a single file in a whole application becomes due especially when the application business model requires strict control of the released changes.

How many of you found yourselves in a critical situation where not all test cases were covered, leading to malfunctions or situations when there was not enough transparency on which functional use cases of the application will be affected by your changes? Knowing ahead the impact of your code changes will give the chance to the testing team to know how much effort will be needed for checking all these changes.

While working on vast OE applications, a tool like CrossWay

will ease your development and testing process, by providing you a visual way to foresee the impact,
technical and functional, for every small (or large) change to parts of your code,
reducing the risk of releasing inconsistent functionality.
