- There are 27 sessions that (at least mention) OSLC, and you can see them all at a glance.
- The Integration Center shows off integrations of IBM, partner, competitor, and open source software, all powered by OSLC.
- OSLC community participants, implementers, supporters, and their lucky guests have an opportunity to socialize, network and share their passion about solving the "integration problem" using OSLC at a Hospitality Suite.
- Integration developers, open source aficionados, and those just looking for a relaxed technical discussion should plan to join the Eclipse Lyo Chat.
IBM Rational community
OSLC (Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration) is the key technology in Rational's integrations of ALM products (and beyond!). Rational isn't the only one using OSLC, nor is it only Rational products that it connects (see more on the OSLC Software page). Given its "key" role, you'd expect to hear a lot about OSLC at Innovate 2012, and you'd be right.
I look forward to meeting many people who I've only worked with remotely at Innovate this year. I am also excited to meet many new people who are interested in OSLC for the first time anywhere!
Software Analyzer integration with Rational Team Concert builds in Rational Application Developer v9.5 Beta (June)

In a previous blog post for Rational Application Developer v9.5 Beta (Feb), we covered how to use Software Analyzer Team Advisor to improve code quality by allowing RTC administrators to set code delivery preconditions, forcing developers to adhere to certain static code analysis rules when they deliver their code. In RAD 95 Beta (June), we are adding a new feature so that Software Analyzer can be run as part of Rational Team Concert builds and the results of running both Java Code Review rules and Java Software Metrics can be viewed as part of the general build results.
Software Analyzer Build Integration requires a new offering called Rational Code Quality Extension for Continuous Integration to be installed into IBM Rational Team Concert Build System Toolkit 4.x, 5.x or 6.0 on the build machine. The Software Analyzer package under Code quality tools for Rational Team Concert Build System Toolkit must be selected during install. IBM Rational Team Concert client 4.x, 5.x or 6.0 must be installed on the RAD client workbench. Use the -clean option when starting the build engine.
When Software Analyzer is specified as a post-build participant, a new Software Analyzer Results tab appears in the build results. This tab contains a summary of the Software Analyzer results, including up to 100 of the most serious results for Java Code Review and/or Java Software Metrics. If HTML or XML reports were selected to be generated in the build definition they will be available in the Downloads tab of the build results.
Software Analyzer RTC Build Integration in RAD v95 Beta (June) allows users to run static code analysis rules as part of an RTC build and see the results as part of the RTC general build results.

We're calling on Rosalind Radcliffe, an IBM Distinguished Engineer and the Enterprise Modernization Solution Architect responsible for collaborative lifecycle management (CLM) products for IBM System z and Power Systems.
I have two focus areas, one is bringing the different development teams based on platform and language to work closer together. We can only improve the overall development of applications if all the teams are working together. Second area is bringing development and operations closer together so that we can reduce the problems and errors introduced in production.
What is the one action you have taken that has accounted for most of your success?
I have a focus on understanding our clients. Having a clear understanding of what's important to our clients business, understanding what their goals are and why they have selected our products and for what they will be using it for. This allows me to facilitate our building better solutions and has provided the opportunity to work across the divisions in IBM.
How do you keep up with changes in the industry?
By attending conferences, discussions with clients and peers, and reading news summaries from the industry. I have attended, presented and been a SHARE volunteer for the last 24 years. I believe this has been one key way of my keeping up with the focus of our clients and with the industry. Working with clients also has a way of forcing you to read and understand what's going on so I can provide the best input.
If you could change your life in one way, what would you change?
I think if I had understood earlier in life that it's important to find the joy and fun in what ever you are doing. This is a lesson I had to learn over time and it would have had more fun if I had learned it earlier.
What books have influenced your ideas and thoughts the most?
I read a wide variety of books as a child from science fiction including Asimov to Shakespeare. I believe the variety has led me to question what's in the world and try to find a better way of doing things. It also provided the opportunity to learn about different cultures and different ways things have been done in the past in order to help understand how to communicate new ideas to different groups of people.
When not heads-down in innovation, Rosalind spends most of her time with family and enjoys traveling in Europe for vacation. She volunteers for National Engineering week, spending time in middle school class rooms to explain what engineers do and help them understand the value of science in math. She is an active host and presenter at numerous events such as IBM Women in Technology, SHARE an IBM user group, IOD, Pulse, Impact and Innovate.
In collaboration with IBM Senior Software Engineer Chen Zhang Hong, she recently authored a series of feature articles IBM z/OS application continuous integration: Building continuous integration with Rational Team Concert, and Continuous testing at all levels. She appreciates feedback about whether you do automated deployment and testing of your z/OS applications? And if so, how?
