Learn the main guidelines to build an automated development and testing framework using scripts. In the following blog post, Aya Elgebeely (Application Developer, IBM) highlights how using scripts to automate your development workflow can have a magical effect on your work quality and performance:
Streamline development efforts with scripts- There are quite a few steps to set up an environment or modify and build a substantial amount of files. If you use scripts, one command can do all the work at once. That's a big difference (and savings in time and energy) from doing the steps one-by-one. This gives you the time to focus on the important and innovative tasks and let the script do the mundane tasks.
With scripts you can combine various technologies under one custom framework. As if you are playing with Lego parts; scripts are the connectors between the different building blocks of your build and test environment. With scripting capabilities the intended workflow runs automatically with minimal user intervention.

When you contact our support team for help resolving Rational product issues, we often we request additional troubleshooting information from your problem system. For some products, obtaining this information is easy to do, but often the info or particular files are not that easily located. On occasion, additional logs are requested based on new information found or it may have simply been missed.
What can we do to make it easier?
For select products, we've enabled an automated data gathering tool called IBM Support Assistant Lite (ISALite for short). This tool will gather appropriate troubleshooting information for a particular product. This will help reduce the amount of back and forth communications between you and support, and help our support team get to the core of the problem more effectively and efficiently.
Our newest ISALite product additions are:
