Allocation of Memory without Associated Release
Quality Issue ID: 9112 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

The software allocates memory for a data element, but it does not release the associated memory at a later time.

Extended Description

This pattern identifies situations where a memory resource is explicitly allocated via the ManagesResource action to the storable or member data element, which is used throughout the application, along the sequence composed of ActionElements with DataRelations relations, some of which being part of named callable and method control elements, none of which being a memory release statement.

Excessive Attack Surface
Quality Issue ID: 9226 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

The product has an attack surface whose quantitative measurement exceeds a desirable maximum.

Extended Description

Originating from software security, an "attack surface" measure typically reflects the number of input points and outpoints that can be utilized by an untrusted party, i.e. a potential attacker. In some cases, this measure may reflect other aspects of quality besides security; e.g., a product with many inputs and outputs may require a large number of tests in order to improve code coverage.

Missing Serialization Control Element
Quality Issue ID: 9102 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

The software contains a serializable data element that does not have an associated serialization method.

Extended Description

This pattern identifies situations where the serializable storable element has no serialization control element in its list of control elements. In case of technologies with class and interface elements, this means situations where the serializable storable element is a class that implements a serializable interface element but does not implement a serialization method element as part of its list composed of method elements. The serializable nature of the element is technology dependent. As examples, serializable nature comes from a serializable SerializableAttribute attribute in .NET and the inheritance from the java.io.Serializable interface in Java.

Persistent Storable Data Element without Associated Comparison Control Element
Quality Issue ID: 9193 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

The software uses a storable data element that does not have all of the associated control elements that are necessary to support comparison.

Extended Description

This pattern identifies situations where the persistent storable element has no dedicated control element aiming at handling comparison action elements from the list. In case of technologies with class elements, this means situations where the persistent storable element is a class that is made persistent while it does not implement method elements from the required comparison control element list is now composed of method elements. As an example, with Java, a required comparison control element list is {'hashCode()','equals()'} method elements.

Serializable Data Element Containing non-Serializable Item Elements
Quality Issue ID: 9110 Maturity: Preliminary

Description Summary

The software contains a serializable, storable data element, but the data element contains item elements that are not serializable.

Extended Description

This pattern identifies situations where the serializable storable element is composed of the non-serializable item element. In case of technologies with class and interface elements, this means situations where the serializable storage element is a class that is serializable but owns a non-Serializable member element. The serializable nature of the element is technology dependent. As examples, serializable nature comes from a serializable SerializableAttribute attribute in .NET and the inheritance from the java.io.Serializable interface in Java.

Shared Resource Improper Locking
Quality Issue ID: 667 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

This pattern identifies situations where the shared storable data element or member data element, declared with the Create action, is accessed outside a critical section of the application via the Read or Write action. The critical nature of the section is technology and platform dependent. As examples, in C/C++, critical nature comes from the use of 'mtx_lock' and 'mtx_unlock' from the 'threads.h' standard C language API, or from the use of 'pthread_mutex_lock' and 'pthread_mutex_unlock' from the 'pthreads.h' C/C++ POSIX API, or from the use of 'EnterCriticalSection' and 'LeaveCriticalSection' from the 'windows.h' C/C++ Win32 API. As other examples, in Java, critical nature comes from the use of the 'synchronized' keyword, and in C#, critical nature comes from the use of the 'lock' keyword.

Unchecked Return Parameter Value of Invokable Control Element with Read, Write, and Manage Access to Platform or Data Resource
Quality Issue ID: 252 Maturity: Preliminary
+ Description

Description Summary

A named callable control element or method control element performs an action that reads, writes, or manages access to a data or platform resource, but it does not check the return parameter from the action.

Extended Description

For data resources managed using SQL, this pattern identifies situations where the invokable control element executes a CRUD SQL statement with the execute SQL statement action, yet the value of the return parameter from the action is not used by any check control element.
