SAVF Extraction feature allows to extract SAVF format into source code (PF, LF, DSPF, PRTF, RPG, RPGLE, CBL, CBLLE, CL, CLLE… files) in order to explore it easily. This feature is visible only when files with SAVF extension have been detected in the uploaded codebase.
SAVF files are detected at the project creation. They are indicated by an orange exclamation mark asking the user to click on the upper-right menu in order to launch the Extraction.
The extraction takes a few minutes depending on the number and size of the files to be extracted. Once done, the user is notified by email, the orange icon is replaced by a green one, and the project metrics are updated. A summary of the extraction is also available on the “…” menu.
The extraction can be relaunched if needed.
NB: AS/400 (iSeries) source code can also be imported into BluInsights as textual files within the corresponding extensions (e.g. PF, LF, DSPF, PRTF, RPG, RPGLE, CBL, CBLLE, CL, CLLE…).
