CQE-9052: Invocation of a Control Element at an Unnecessarily Deep Horizontal Layer

 
Invocation of a Control Element at an Unnecessarily Deep Horizontal Layer
Quality Issue ID: 9052 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

The code at one architectural layer invokes code that resides at a deeper layer than the adjacent layer, i.e., the call skips at least one layer.

Extended Description

This pattern identifies situations where the named callable and method control elements from the higher horizontal layer directly calls the named callable or method control element from the lower horizontal layer, while the lower layer is not the next lower layer to the upper layer, as defined in the model of the architectural layers; this excludes the vertical utility layers that can be referenced from any horizontal layers.
