Many large-scale IoT solutions require the use of long-range wireless networking to communicate among the sensors, gateways, the cloud, and any IoT apps that make up the IoT solution. These large-scale IoT solutions take advantage of edge computing (or fog computing, as some people call it). Learn more in the following IoT on the edge 3-part series of articles.
New videos are available for the latest 6.0.6 version of IBM Rational Publishing Engine.
RPE: Live Document Preview - Document Studio now includes a live Preview view, where you can see the output as you design the template in the template editor, without having to manually generate the document and open it. You can quickly verify the output with live or cached data, which is especially helpful when you are debugging a template or working with scripts. This video was recorded using IBM Rational Publishing Engine version 6.0.6. For more information, see Previewing a document.
Highlighting some of the many enhancements in the new IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation 6.0.6 release:
In this release, you can copy artifacts across components from a folder to a folder, from a folder to a module, and from a module to a module. When you paste artifacts into the target component, you can create back links for traceability purposes and specify mappings between the component type systems. You can also drag and drop artifacts to copy them across components.
Differentiating module artifacts from base artifacts
To further differentiate module artifacts from base artifacts, you can now specify a common folder for module content folders. The common folder organizes base artifacts in a hierarchy under a single folder, which can help you identify module artifacts from base artifacts and which can help you focus on module data.
Supply chain with a mix of DOORS and DOORS Next Generation
Removes the ReqIF restriction of data, crossing a mixed supply chain of IBM Rational DOORS and DOORS Next Generation where DOORS Next Generation is the original host.
This release includes several usability improvements, including drag-and-drop support for moving folders, visual indicators for non-editable cells, and the ability to rename a review on the Reviews page.
