The deployment architecture tools found in the IBM® Rational® Software Architect Versions 7.5 and 8.0 include modeling elements for a variety of technology areas, such as databases, application servers, and Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) applications. These elements are often enough to model any type of computer system or software deployment, but if you use an area of technology where specific modeling elements are not provided, you might want to create custom units and capabilities. This tutorial demonstrates how to create custom units and capabilities that you can use to model the components of any area of information technology, using the Topology Domain Generation Toolkit.
