DB2 license expired after 90 days for IBM IoT CLM, RQM, RTC, RDM, JTS, RELM, IBM DOORS Next Generation – what can you do?
UtaUiAlmhain 2700020G5T Visits (10080)
Each valid client license of IBM CLM, CLM, RQM, RTC, RDM, JTS, RELM or IBM DOORS Next Generation includes a license to run one instance of DB2 Workgroup Server Edition (excludes z/OS).
If you get a message that your DB2 license is expired you might have installed a trial license – for example a trial license for DB2 Enterprise edition).
You can remedy this by extracting the license file for the bundled DB2 Workgroup Server edition.
To do so, please follow the steps provided in the technical docu

How to Add websites (IIS Website location) in the RTC source control using HTTP location.
When you create Web site projects, Visual Studio creates the solution files in the Projects location specified under Tool
You have two options here, one to create a solution first and then create a web site project under it as described in Work
or, just share the project instead of sharing the solution. Refer to "Solution outside the sandbox" section in Flex
** Solution for adding local IIS websites into RTC source control** Find the steps below.
If you want to share your .sln file:
1. Create a virtual directory in IIS that points to a physical location in your sandbox, say <sandbox>\WebSite1
2. Create a blank solution with the name WebSite1 at <sandbox>. This will create <san
3. Add a new WebSite to the solution created in the previous step and choose http
4. You'll see a "Web Site Already Exists" dialog. Choose "Create a new Web site in the existing location"
5. Right-click on the solution in the Solution Explorer and Share in Jazz
If you prefer not to check-in the .sln file, skip step 2 and in step 5,right click on the Web site in solution explorer and Share in Jazz..

This two-part article series describes many operations a developer is responsible for from the time they join the project to the time where they are ready to deliver their features and fixes. This series is meant to be a helpful collection of "developer's cheat sheets." Some of the operations outlined are ones you might use infrequently. You'll use other operations often enough for them to become second nature to your normal development routines.

Many developers are familiar with IBM's Configuration Management Version Control (CMVC) system. Some might question whether it's worthwhile to migrate to a newer lifecycle management platform. While it is possible to use CMVC to coordinate tasks and workflow throughout the development cycle, CMVC's relatively simple two-tier architecture lacks many of the features of Rational Team Concert. In addition to the basic version control and management features in CMVC, Rational Team Concert offers continuous builds, iteration planning, and process templates, which make it easy to configure and manage various work item types and workflows.
Migrate your CMVC workflow to Rational Team Concert, Part 1: Set up and configure your migration path with CMVC-RTC Connector Plugin 2.3 - This tutorial is for developers and managers currently using CMVC who are ready to migrate to Rational Team Concert. We'll walk through the complete migration path, including tips for working around synchronization issues between the two platforms for an optimal migration. [Read more...]
Migrate your CMVC workflow to Rational Team Concert, Part 2: Configure the Defect/Feature Importer to migrate CMVC work items to Rational Team Concert - The CMVC-RTC Connector Plugin includes several tools useful for synchronizing CMVC and Rational Team Concert™, including the Defect/Feature Importer and CMVC-Rational Team Concert SCM Importer. In Part 1, you installed and set up the CMVC-RTC Connector 2.3 plugin on your RTC Eclipse client, then prepared your RTC server and client environments for migration. Here in Part 2, you'll begin migrating work items and source code from CMVC to Rational Team Concert. [Read more...]
Migrate your CMVC workflow to Rational Team Concert, Part 3: Extract and import your source code to Rational Team Concert - Moving source code from your current and previous CMVC projects is the final stage in migrating your software development lifecycle to Rational Team Concert™. Learn how to configure the CMVC-Rational Team Concert SCM Importer to safely and efficiently extract your project source code, then import it to your Rational Team Concert client repository. See Part 1 for instructions to install and setup the CMVC-RTC Connector Plugin 2.3. See Part 2 if you need help configuring the Defect/Feature Importer to migrate CMVC work items to Rational Team Concert. [Read more...]

What’s new in Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 22.214.171.124 - We are pleased to announce that Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 126.96.36.199 is here! The Team Concert Jenkins plug-in integrates Jenkins with Rational Team Concert’s (RTC) SCM and Build capabilities using the richer features of the build toolkit. It provides options to configure Jenkins jobs to use RTC source control. Jenkins jobs can also be configured to use the source control options specified in an RTC build definition, facilitating Jenkins builds to be managed from RTC and take advantage of the traceability provided across RTC work items, builds, and change sets. The plug-in also publishes the changelog information in the Jenkins builds and supports polling....
An overview of the different build configurations supported by the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in - Using the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in, you can configure your Jenkins jobs to use Rational Team Concert (RTC) source control and, optionally, report information back to Rational Team Concert builds. The plug-in integrates Jenkins with RTC using the richer features of the build toolkit. This plug-in is different from the other Rational Team Concert plug-in for Jenkins which uses SCM CLI to integrate with RTC. This article provides an overview of the different build configurations supported by the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 188.8.131.52. For instructions on how to setup and configure the plug-in, refer to Team Concert Jenkins plug-in wiki....
Loading symbolic links correctly when using the Rational Team Concert/Jenkins integration - When using the Jenkins plugin to load files from Jazz SCM it is possible that the symbolic links in the Jazz streams will not be loaded correctly. The problem is that the default Java runtime for Jenkins will not know how to deal with the symbolic links. It is necessary to manually include the .dll/.so files into the Jenkins library path so the symbolic links will load correctly. This article will detail how to setup Jenkins to get the symbolic links to load correctly....
