Make continuous deployment practical and cost-effective with Rational ALM tools
Continuous deployment means deploying software changes to a development, test, preproduction, or production environment. It is similar to adopting continuous compilation and then continuous integration to build every change. Steve Arnold outlines the three main challenges of this approach: design, automation, and governance. Then he explains how using specific Rational tools for ALM, in combination with the cloud, make it practical and cost-effective, because it reduces the effort of testing and deployment, improves governance, and lowers risks of deploying to a production environment.

Improve the quality of unit testing by increasing code coverage
One of the challenges for many agile software development teams is to ensure that their unit tests cover most of the code. This is critical in ensuring that they create as few defects as possible and that the code can be refactored. Therefore, one of the key metrics (other than all tests passing) is the amount of code that has been covered. Starting in version 8.0.3 of Rational Application Developer, you can configure IBM Rational Application Developer and integrate it with IBM Rational Team Concert to run your tests and check code coverage before allowing the code to be delivered. This article walks you through how to set up this precondition, called the Code Coverage Advisor, and shows how you can use it to increase the coverage of code tested in your projects.

How to generate simple Web sites fast
This article describes how to use IBM Rational Software Architect to generate working Web pages from a UML data model. The generated Web site provides pages that offer create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) functionality for the defined data model. It can be used to generate the simple data management screens for your application, thus enabling you to focus on more complex, higher-value development.

Improve the quality of your unit testing by integrating eclEmma and Rational Team Concert
This article describes how to set up eclEmma and IBM Rational Team Concert so that you can automatically check your code coverage when code is delivered to a stream. The delivery can then be prevented if the coverage is not sufficient. This process makes it possible for teams to ensure that their unit tests are being effective and that they have high levels of coverage. It also helps teams with existing code to incrementally improve the coverage and quality of the code.

Get automated, consistent color in your UML models by using the UML Coloring plug-in
By using the UML Coloring plug-in, you can define rules to automatically color UML elements as they are placed on the diagram surface in either IBM Rational Software Modeler or IBM Rational Software Architect UML models. This helps you apply a consistent coloring scheme to model elements, based on element traits. Coloring models in a consistent way can be a significant aid to improving others' understanding of the model.
