Integration is a hot topic on developerWorks. There are many posts in the forums and many tech notes on the support site. Here's a collection of the top 10 articles that we published in 2010 about ways to use different types of IBM® Rational® software together, as well as software from other IBM brands and other companies. A few articles are listed in more than one category, because the software involved falls into different categories.

We get our content from people like you — experienced pros who are doing innovative work and solving problems every day.
