Abstract

The publication will describe one of possible approaches of checking the relevance conditions of fixlets and tasks. More and more customers deploy their solution using a relevance language. Nowadays relevance becomes the standard way of validating application against particular group of computers/endpoints. Scripting languages like bash and batch got one more level of pre-execution by delivering a very light and easy relevance language which checks and validates if the given script or program can be launched on the target machine. This does not only apply to the scripting languages only but can be used as well for other pre-compiled programs written in Java, C, C++ or C#.   Some of relevance condition that validate the pre-execution can be evaluated to false from some reason implicitly influencing the status of the fixlet to become not relevant and hence not applicable on the computer/endpoint.   Relevance analysis generator helps to identify those relevant conditions which failed during fixlet relevance validation.

Relevance analysis generator

More and more customers deploy their solution based on fixlet and analysis . Nowadays relevance language becomes the standard way of validating application against particular group of computers/endpoints. Scripting languages like bash and batch got one more level of pre-execution by delivering a very light and easy relevance language which checks and validates if the given script or program can be launched on the target machine. This does not only apply to the scripting languages only but can be used as well for other pre-compiled programs written in Java, C, C++ or C#.

Some of relevance condition that validate the pre -execution are now circulating in the network and become of one of the most frequently exchange information between software engineers and operating system administrator . A confirmed and solid relevance condition might be now re-used in many application. For example the relevance condition that checks what operating system we deal with and makes a distinguish between Windows and Linux/UNIX platform can look as following:

(if (name of it as lowercase starts with "win") then (true) else
((name of it as lowercase starts with "linux") OR (name of it as
lowercase starts with "aix") OR (name of it as lowercase starts
with "hp-ux" AND ((architecture of it as lowercase contains
"ia64") OR (family name of main processor as lowercase contains
"pa-risc") OR (exists match (regex "^PA8[0-9]{3}(\s+)?$") of
(family name of main processor)...
