Parser

A parser exists for each language type and transforms the source code into one common language construct. This construct is input to the various code generators required by the target environment.  New languages can be added to OnTarget with ease.

Application analysis

A recursive process whereby OnTarget is able to analyze the existing application, map all existing connections between the different entities and identifies the impact of a change on the application components. The result of the analysis is used to drive and manage the required application changes.
