Before you start
This series is for novices who want high-level overviews of various IBM software products. The modules are designed to introduce the products, and draw your interest for further exploration. The exercises only cover the basic concepts, but are enough to get you started.
This tutorial provides a high level overview of Rational® Software Architect, and shows some basic features of Rational Software Architect with a hands-on exercise. The exercise has step-by-step instructions for designing an application using UML diagrams, publishing the model information into a Web page, and transforming the design to Java™ using Rational Software Architect.
This tutorial is for application designers at a beginning level, but you should have a general familiarity with using the Eclipse development environment.
To run the examples in this tutorial, you need to install IBM Rational Software Architect v6.0.
If this is your first encounter with a developerWorks tutorial that includes demos, here are a few things you might want to know:
- Demos are an optional way to see the same steps described in the tutorial. To see an animated demo, click the Show me link. The demo opens in a new browser window.
- Each demo contains a navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Use the navigation bar to to pause, exit, rewind, or fast forward portions of the demo.
- The demos are 800 x 600 pixels. If this is the maximum resolution of your screen or if your resolution is lower than this, you will have to scroll to see some areas of the demo.
