Guide to Git for Rational Team Concert users - If you're a user of Rational Team Concert then you know it's a robust, well integrated source code management system. But that doesn't mean it's the right fit for every software development project or team. We've written this article for Rational Team Concert users like us, who want to learn about Git or will be using Git for new projects. We compare the basic and advanced features of Git and Rational Team Concert, so you can see what they have in common and where they differ. We also look at how some common Git flows translate to similar source management patterns in Rational Team Concert. Finally, we point out some pitfalls to avoid when migrating from Rational Team Concert to Git.... [Read more...]

Considerations for reporting on Rhapsody Design Manager data by using the Report Builder technology preview

First published by the Design Manager Team on Jazz.net
Build basis: Rhapsody Design Manager 6.0.3
The Rational Rhapsody Simulink and Documentation domains are not supported in this technical preview. You cannot report on data from these domains.
The rich hover feature does not work for Design Management (DM) artifacts. When you hover over a DM artifact in a report, no additional information is provided.
When you generate data from a Rational Rhapsody Design Manager project, and you use the Enable Global Index (LQE) for project resources from all conf
In Report Builder, configuration managed projects are shown in the Limit the scope section only if the data source is Lifecycle Query Engine(LQE) scoped by a configuration.

Getting started with reporting by using Lifecycle Query Engine data sources in version 6.0.3: You can use the Report Builder in the Jazz Reporting Service to create and run reports about artifacts across projects or versioned data in configurations. Using indexed data from the Lifecycle Query Engine (LQE) data sources, you can, for example: Create a multi-project report that shows test cases, the requirements that they validate, and related defects. You can include designs from Design Manager by editing the SPARQL query in the Advanced section of Report Builder. Run this report, scoping the results by choosing a configuration (stream or baseline). Learn how to set up your environment and understand some of the limitations when you use either the LQE or LQE using Configurations data source. Consider the limitations described here before you use LQE data sources for production reports. If you are interested only in document-style reports, you can export Report Builder reports as Rational Publishing Engine templates to make document authoring easier. [Read more at Jazz.net...]

Looking for information to help you prepare for the migration of your existing Rhapsody projects to another version? If so, then you may want to first review the relevant migration issue sections in the Migr
When reviewing the document, it is best to go through the lists in ascending product version order. For example, if you have Rational Rhapsody 188.8.131.52 and are migrating to version 8.0.3, review the migration issues for 184.108.40.206 on the 7.6 tab and then all the migration issues on the 8.0 tab up to and including version 8.0.3.
Getting started with components in the RM and QM applications - In IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation (RM application) and IBM Rational Quality Manager (QM application), in projects that are enabled for configuration management, you can now create components to manage versions of data at a finer granularity than whole project areas. You might see components referred to as "fine-grained components." Instead of working with all the artifacts from the project in one stream (for example, a physical piece called a Handheld Meter Reader), you can create a component to represent a smaller collection of artifacts (for example, a smaller physical piece such as a Sensor in the handheld meter reader). Components are supported only in projects that have configuration management capabilities enabled.
Note: This feature is a technology preview and is not supported for use in a production environment. You should read and understand the key limitations that are listed in the

In the 2.1.1 release of Rational Publishing Engine, we’ve continued to simplify the user experience with a focus on both template designers and report designers. You can watch demos of these and other new features at the Rational Publishing Engine 2.1.1 YouTube playlist. For more details, see New & Noteworthy. [Read more...]
