How to share DoDAF2 data with Rational System Architect
Sharing enterprise architecture data across modeling tools, databases and analysis tools can be accomplished using spreadsheets. This is especially true for DoDAF2 data where spreadsheets, like the SV-06 System Resource Flow matrix and OV-03 Operational Resource Flow matrix, are both universally used and well defined. Recent changes to the DoDAF2 implementation in Rational System Architect make importing data from spreadsheets easy to do and sufficient to generate DoDAF2 diagrams, matrices and reports. While this tutorial uses examples based on importing SV-06 System Resource Flow matrix data into Rational System Architect’s DoDAF2, this technique can be used to import other spreadsheets into DoDAF2 and into other frameworks.

When your app crashes, you want to know absolutely everything!
If software engineering was like civil engineering, then mobile apps would be as rock solid as the average modern bridge. However, software engineering is a very different discipline - and a much younger one - than civil engineering. We have best practices and design patterns to help us write excellent software, but it is almost impossible to guarantee a piece of software will never crash. This is an even bigger challenge in today's mobile apps which, thanks to very short release cycles, do not enjoy as much quality assurance as do other kinds of software. In this article, you will understand how the automated crash reporting feature of IBM Mobile Quality Assurance can make your mobile app as strong as a bridge.

The pillars of knowing your software is right
In model-driven development and formal specification of software systems, the quality feedback mechanism is reinforced by the more extensive validation of early lifecycle representations of the system. It is worth replacing a well-understood and trusted validation and verification model based on hand-crafted requirements, code, simulation, and test with a formal requirements engineering approach.

Create defects automatically from automation playback report
Defects can be created automatically from an automation playback report. The list of failures from the automated test cases is filtered and using a small Selenium script or a java program (using RTC APIs), defects are created in IBM Rational Team Concert for all valid failures. The data for the defect is obtained from the failure reports (or any other data source), which also contain screen captures and a stack trace to give more precise information to the development team. You can integrate this automated process for creating defects from automation failures with automated deployment and testing.

DevOps for rapid software production
Producing IT software solutions fast enough to meet operational demands has become increasingly challenging for technology-rich businesses. The process is labor intensive and requires iterative procedures as well as 24x7 attentiveness to integrating, compiling, and testing code. At first glance, throwing additional resources at the problem seems the logical response, but a better solution is to develop software applications more rapidly using a framework that is resilient enough to withstand mass-production automations. DevOps offers such a framework, and coupled with rapid application development, businesses can perform fast-paced prototyping, testing, and delivery while maintaining high quality standards.

Set up a Jazz Build Engine to run an Ant script: Part 2. Setup build scripts to perform preview build
Learn how to set up an IBM Rational Team Concert main build that performs an IBM Rational Developer for System z code review. Based on the result of the code review, the process either submits the build to compile, or stops and reports the code review errors. Apply the tested, documented sample described in this article to implement a similar solution on your own platform. The steps focus on the Rational Team Concert administrator who writes an Ant task to compile COBOL programs, depending on other previous tasks, such as quality control. Part 2 introduces the Ant-based build script, build.xml, that defines tasks for the build to run.
