AMELIO Logic Discovery has the goal to discover with certainty WHAT is implemented in an application. The recovered knowledge will be shown in a language neutral and technology independent way.
To reach this goal the Source-Code will initially be analyzed, implementation details are extracted and determined HOW the application has been implemented: what components make out the application, the relationships between these components and what interfaces they share.
Implementation details are abstracted, the information gained is linked, logically structured and insight derived about the functionality of the application.
As a result, one gets e.g.:
"AMELIO supports craftsmanship in technical analysis, as many of the required information is supplied."
Friedrich Pohle, Deputy Head of Department, Valida Pension AG
AMELIO Logic Discovery identifies also redundant and dead code-shares. In these analyzes, both the procedure code and data definitions are taken into account.
If copybooks, includes or macros (in the case of Delta ADS applications) have been used during the application development, AMELIO Logic Discovery determines whether they contain or create superfluous, dead or redundant code.
The actual functionality of the application is made visible. In addition, these analyzes support the cleanup of the code to make this leaner and more maintainable.
AMELIO Logic Discovery - Spring-Clean Your COBOL- and PL/I-Applications
Spring is coming and the sun brings light into flats and houses. Dust and dirt being collected unrecognized during the dark reason now gets visible. Thus in many households the spring-cleaning is started. How about extending your spring-cleaning also to your COBOL- and PL/I-applications?
AMELIO Logic Discovery provides comprehensive in-depth data structure analyses for COBOL, PL/I and Delta ADS applications. With the new representation of the analysis results, the complete knowledge about your data structures, their declaration, usage, and dependencies is available directly at a glance.AMELIO Logic Discovery provides comprehensive in-depth data structure analyses for COBOL, PL/I and Delta ADS applications.

The Problem with Data Structures
To understand an application, it is essential to understand its data structures. But, in applications that have been implemented using procedural languages like COBOL or PL/I, either native or generative, the declarations, usage and dependencies are spread over the entire code or even are only implicit.
In order to facilitate the understanding of these applications, AMELIO Logic Discovery offers comprehensive data structure analyses.
