Title: Configuring Rational DOORS Help on Citrix environment
Abtract: Rational DOORS uses an Eclipse based help system that can be configured in different modes. Each Rational DOORS client that is installed on a user system can be independently configured in any one of the HELP modes. However, when Rational DOORS is published through a supported terminal or presentation server, a DOORS Administrator can choose to configure common help modes for all users. This document touches upon each HELP mode in the context of a terminal / presentation server. Citrix Xenapp 6.5 is used for testing the scenarios that are presented in this document.

Title: Differences between Rational Rhapsody 8.0 Statecharts and UML 2.4.1 Behavior State Machine
Abtract: OMG UML and IBM Rational Rhapsody have been evolving in parallel, and some differences were created and expanded over time. Not all graphical notations that are defined in UML specification are supported by Rhapsody. There are certain patterns of transitions you cannot draw due to restrictions imposed deliberately, but not necessarily limited by UML specification. Some of UML features such as deferred event and do-activity are not natively supported today. This document covers such gaps that are found between UML specification and Rhapsody implementation, aiming to help you design statechart more effectively and enable easier interchange of statcharts among UML-based modeling tools.
