About the example

Included with your AppScan® Source installation is a sample handler that reads and provides Framework for Frameworks information about Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) 2 applications (also referred to as Enterprise Java Beans, or just Beans).

EJB is a framework that attempts to make it easier to work with and reuse business logic components. Each bean represents a business component and must have associated interface classes that other Beans must use to interact with it. These interface classes are associated with the Bean through the application's EJB configuration file (EJB-jar.xml). This creates a blind spot, as the static analysis engine will not pick up those associations in the source, which makes the EJB framework particularly suited to be handled through Framework for Frameworks.
