Have you pulled together your platform upgrade plans for 2014? Do you know if your IBM Rational Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) environment will be supported on the platforms you plan on upgrading?
Greetings from IBM Rational Client Support!
We are glad to invite you to the OpenMic* session on "ClearCase 8.0.x - New features and Planning for Upgrade". Keeping in mind that version 7.1.2.x is reaching its ‘End of Support’ by April 2014, this session will help you in planning your ClearCase upgrade to latest supported version. Please join us virtually for a one hour long session on Wednesday, October 23rd 2013 at 3:00 PM IST.
*OpenMics are a series of conference calls and/or webcasts where technical experts share their knowledge and answer your questions on a specific technical topic.
Topic: ClearCase 8.0.x - New features and Planning for Upgrade
IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0.x.x being the latest version has many new features introduced. We would be presenting the new features, advantages of ClearCase 8.0.x.x and upgrade instructions.
When: 23rd October 2013 3:00pm IST (GMT+5:30)
Following are the key areas which we would cover:

IBM Rational Rhapsody family provides a collaborative design, development and test environment for systems engineers and software engineers. It uses Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and Unified Modeling Language (UML) to enable rapid requirements analysis and visual, model-based design.
The UML diagrams are views into the underlying semantic system model; each kind of diagram emphasizes some aspect of the model.
Example - Dynamic aspects is represented by behavior diagram - State chart.
Statecharts define the behavior of objects by specifying how they react to events or operations. The reaction can be to perform a transition between states and possibly to execute some actions. When running in animation mode, IBM Rational Rhapsody highlights the transitions between states.
The discussion covers few modeling challenges with state chart using Rational Rhapsody and how to over come those challenges:
1) Evaluation of condition connector in state chart
A scenario where a variable (count) is decremented before the condition connector and is expected to terminate if value of variable is 9 (count==9).
However, on executing you observe that the condition doesn’t take the change in the variable on the transition. Instead it takes the initial value of the variable for comparison.
The work around here is to have an additional dummy state in between to get the desired output.
2) Multicasting with rapid ports in layered structure
Currently, the multicasts of event via rapid ports (ports that have no provided/required interfaces) are supported only from a direct invocation.
Example - One sender object and two receiver objects
Consider a scenario where the event is first sent from the Class A's object(itsA) and then it reaches the Class B's object(itsB), from where it is delegated to its 2 inner parts(itsB1 and itsB2
No multicasting is available on having multi layered structure.
The Workaround is to add an additional state chart and MULITCAST_GEN() macro in class B.
3) Working of Reaction in State
In a single state for a Reactive class, you would expect to continuously print a statement after elapse time of tm (1000). However, upon execution it prints only once instead of continuous timer.
Using a tm (1000) as a trigger for a reaction in state means that 1 second after you enter the state you'll be triggered. It's not a continuous timer.
To restart the timer you have to exit the state and re-enter it. It needs a design change as below.
4) Combining Junction Connector and Condition Connector in a state chart
You would like to have several events from a state and a condition to determine the other state.
You cannot join several transitions into a condition connector neither you can have a transition from a junction connector to a condition connector.
However, you can model to add a dummy state in between that will further evaluate for condition connector.
Jazz LICENSING : Exploring Rational Team Concert
Rational Team Concert has a simple set of defined roles to enable key solutions for your organization. With Rational Team Concert you simply acquire licenses to support the roles and solutions that you are interested in. This provides you with an unprecedented level of flexibility and cost efficiency to choose and use only what you are interested in to support your needs. Rational Team Concert allows you to implement individual components of RTC now and others later simply through licensing - and without your typical deployment and integration headaches and risks.
When you purchase a role-based license for IBM Rational Team Concert you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application. In addition, there are three types of Developer client access licenses.
Client access licenses:
With a role-based licensing scheme, when you purchase a client access license for a particular role you will have read, write, and comment access to some or all of the capabilities of the Change and Configuration Management application.
You install the client access license activation kits in the License Key Management section in the Administration page of the Jazz Team Server. You assign the licenses to users in the Client Access License Management section of Jazz User Administration. See Installing and managing license keys for instructions.
Role-based client access licenses:
Configuration Management application.
Functional user licenses:
Developer Client Access Licenses:
Once a Jazz Team Server is installed, you may install additional license keys in the License Key Management section in the Administration page of the Jazz Team Server
