Watch this demonstration to learn how to use IBM® Rational® Publishing Engine document generation software to build a simple document template for IBM® Rational® DOORS® requirements management data. It shows how to link the template with a running DOORS data source and generate reports in PDF, Microsoft Word, and HTML formats. Demo details cover building queries in Rational Publishing Engine Studio, opening the Launcher to use the template in a document specification and configuring the specification to point to a running instance of DOORS, and specifying what report formats to generate. Then you follow steps to run and generate the reports, check the reports, and return to Studio to tweak the report. The final step explains how to check the output by publishing from Studio rather than Launcher.
