If your current version of Rhapsody Design Manager (RDM) is v5.0.2, you can now directly upgrade to v6.0.1; previously you must upgrade to v6.0 first. Note that the direct upgrade process is only supported from version 5.0.2 interim fix (so called iFix) 011 or higher, so you still need to apply the latest iFix for RDM v5.0.2 prior to commencing work. Interactive User Guide was recently updated with instructions for direct upgrade from v5.0.2 to v6.0.1, you will no longer see the warning below when you select v5.0.2 as your source version. See this blog for upgrading Rhapsody Client for using with RDM v6.0.1.
IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation: Basic Navigation - Getting Started with IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation: Basic Navigation By Yianna Papadakis Kantos
In this video we explore basic Navigation within Rational DOORS Next Generation such as the home button and the navigation menu and breadcrumbs. .
The basic layout of the application explored and you will learn how to differentiate between the different pages such as the Projects page, the Artifacts page, and the Open Artifact pages
You will know that there are several ways to located artifacts, including filters, or searches; where to save a view, and where to create a new artifact.
Finally, you will learn how to collapse and expand sections of the UI
IoTization means to empower your Rhapsody applications with an ability to communicate with other Rhapsody applications, devices or services by sending and receiving MQTT/HTTP(s) packets over the cloud in a secure manner, opening up a way to induce Cognitive/Watson IoT capabilities into your physical devices. IoTization process involves the use of IBM Internet of Things Workbench. The entire IoTization process was compressed into 9 minutes video. This video was particularly designed for busy people who want to understand the entire process quickly.
For those who want to follow every steps to recreate the same environment, watch it once, then adjust YouTube settings to play slower and follow steps. Get the MQTT profile today and follow README.txt to install it. The MQTT profile is provided only for experimental only at this point, and currently supports only MSVC++ to compile the code. Read the disclaimer below before installing it.

Technote 1973531 - This technote provides all you need to automate the deploy and build process of source code generated by IBM Rational Rhapsody and run the executable on your Raspberry Pi target. It also comes with a ready-made adaptor which you can use immediately to get started with your hobby project up to prototype making. The attached 1:30 video shows my first IoT robot I've programmed with using the attached adaptor and show how its powerful animation capability can be used to remotely monitor the behavior of the device and interaction with Watson services on Bluemix. Grab the adaptor today and try creating your first Raspberry Pi application with Rational Rhapsody!!! Rhapsody experts are reachable atRhapsody Forum site at IBM developerWorks.

Upgrading Rhapsody Design Manager Server (RDM) is not straight forward as it often involves upgrading other CLM tools and there is no one place to obtain all migration guidance or fixes needed to complete the complicated migration process. Even worse, Rhapsody Client & Server interoperability is highly dependent on RDM and iFix versions, requiring extra efforts in keeping Client and Server compatible. This blog will break down the whole migration process for DM into 3 Key Steps and show you the direction for what to do at each steps. Also, check out this page for new features of RDM v6.0.1!!!
Apply iFix005 to RDM v6.0
The upgrade process to v6.0.1 is only supported from version 6.0 interim fix (so called iFix) 002 or higher. If your current version is any release of v5.x or v6.0, you must first upgrade your server to 6.0 iFix002+, and then upgrade to 6.0.1. As of this writing, the latest DM iFix is iFix005, which you can download fromthis page at Jazz.net. In addition, you should apply the latest CLM iFix for your JTS or other CLM applications if any are integrated. The CLM iFix includes fixes for both JTS and CLM applications. As of this writing, the latest CLM iFix for v6.0 is iFix005, which you can download fromthis page at Fix Central. Follow readme.txt for installation steps. Watch the 5-min video (*1) to walk through this step.
In this video, CLM iFix002 was used instead of iFix005.
Migrate RDM v6.0+iFix005 to v6.0.1+iFix001
RDM v6.0.1 introduced two significant changes, they are:
1. No more VVC!!!
Starting in version 6.0.1, RDM is based on Jazz Foundation versioning instead of VVC, to be aligned with other CLM applications. The removal of VVC makes the whole DM architecture simpler and less error prone when it comes to migration, data synchronization, indexing etc. Furthermore, the simpler architecture achieves additional performance and scalability improvements.
2. Websphere Liberty replaces Tomcat Server!!!
Starting in version 6.0.1,WebSphere Liberty is provided as a default application server. Select this option if you used Apache Tomcat server in your previous CLM installation and like to migrate your previous Apache Tomcat configuration files into WebSphere Liberty.
As result of these changes, upgrade procedure for RDM has slightly changed from previous as such involving the export and import of VVC data. ReadUpgrade Guide very very carefully, which now includes RDM (*2). Note that, you will be instructed to install the new RDM v6.0.1 (RDM is also delivered as part of IoT Continuous Engineering Solution package) and apply the latest iFix for applications immediately; as of this writing, RDM v6.0.1 iFix001 is available fromthis page at Jazz.net (*3). You will separately need to apply the latest CLM iFix (iFix001 as of this writing) for your JTS and/or any CLM applications that share the same JTS with RDM. Consult the upgrade guide.
Apply iFix001 to Rhapsody Client and DM Client Extension.
To connect to RDM Server v6.0.1+iFix001 and edit models on the server from the local client, you MUST do two things.
1. Apply iFix001 to Rhapsody v8.1.4 (Stand-alone)
Do not skip applying iFix001 or higher to your Rhapsody Client (Stand-alone)!!! If you forgot applying it, you will see Rhapsody crash when you open a model from Server due toError:400 Illegal Unquoted Character exception (*4). Download "IBM Rational Rhapsody 8.1.4 IFix 1" from this page.
2. Install DM Client Extension v6.0.1 iFix001
You have to install Client Extension that is the exact same version and patch level with RDM server, that is v6.0.1 iFix001. If you forgot applying iFix001, you will see an errorat connection (*5). Download "Rhapsody Design Manager Client Extension v6.0.1 iFix001" from this page. Grab the fix for Simulink and Import Engine if needed (*6).
If you're on Rhapsody v8.1.3 release, you need to first obtain Rhapsody v8.1.4 from Passport Advantage site or download a 90-days trial version from this page at Jazz.net and install any of 4 editions. Once you have Rhapsody v8.1.4 installed, follow the 2:30-min video (*7) to install both binaries in one go.
