There are some new videos available for the Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) products. Two of the topics are the integration of the Data Collection Component into Rational Insight and in the installation of the V5.0 Jazz Reporting Service. There is another video that focuses on exporting and importing system definitions with enterprise edition of Rational Team Concert (RTC), a method you can use to provide system information to Rational Support. Thank you to support engineers Ben Silverman and Olivier Gauneau for creating the videos.

IBM Online Service Request:
If you cannot solve a technical problem using the resources available from the product support Web page, you can quickly open a problem management record (PMR) to engage IBM Support.
IBM provides the Online Service Request (SR) tool to electronically submit and manage your PMRs through the Web. With EcuRep, you can attach files to the PMRs, which gives you more control over their content.
With SR, you can create new PMRs and update existing ones through the Web. If you have an active support contract for IBM Passport Advantage, you can do the following:
Obtain fixes, device drivers, software updates and more:
Obtain software and hardware/firmware downloads 24x7 for support in one location with a common interface, eliminating the need to call a Support Center representative or look across multiple support sites.
Read about fixes, install instructions and change history:
Readmes, release notes, install instructions and change history files are provided with the recommendations and downloads. You get the complete package when you are ready to download.
Access special downloads:
Same interface for special downloads or customized content. Registered clients can access custom fixes, or beta program fixes, that are not ready for wide availability; there is no longer a need for you to call into support and ask for these fixes to be shipped on media.
Interim fixes for IBM products:
Immediacy - Fixes made available for clients experiencing a particular problem, without waiting for a fix pack or release.
Understand SR and Rational best @ Client connect:
The Client Connect Program is a new Client Connect Program, which will be initiated by Rational Client Resource Center team to assist clients who are new to Rational Support self-assist tools.
Overview & Objectives:
Deliver a personalized one hour online session with demo on IBM Self-Assist web tools.
Deliver Client Connect (CC) Information Pack (PDF format - attached below)
Provide useful links to online resources through e-mail.
Help Primary Site Contact (PSC) or Primary Site Technical Contact (PSTC) of clients new to Rational Support to give a good start.

There are several videos available for Rational Performance Tester (RPT) that help you troubleshoot possible problems you might encounter with the application. These videos explain the problems, walk you through diagnosis, and demonstrates resolving the problem. Thank you to support engineer Roja Ayyagary for creating the videos, which are available on the IBM Rational Support YouTube channel.

In Rational Test RealTime (RTRT) I want to test function foo() in the sample source code, where I will expect stub call some_Task(), but some_Task() function is present in endless loop.
To handle this endless loop, in order to do that I need to foreclose exit through RTRT from function foo().
I can use setjmp()/longjmp functionality to "exit" a test under certain condition. If some_Task() is stubbed then it can be done.
The below steps explain how to resume the execution of the test script when user code has reached an handled exception:
- stub the function that would put the user program in 'stopped' mode or 'exit'
- resume the execution of the test (using setjmp/longjmp combination)
First of all, the ptu has to include the header file <setjmp.h>
Note the use of '@' that would prevent the PTU parser to search for this file.
At this stage, the compiler header files might not be available.
Then, the setjmp structure has to be declared:
DEFINE STUB PTU_globalvar
Then, a user function has to be stubbed :
DEFINE STUB STUB_c
Then, in the test code include :
@if( ! setjmp( failure_setjump) )
This should help in forming a test case to handle the endless loops.
