Often times, you might have data requirements which are documented in external data source files such as Comma separated Value (CSV) or Microsoft Excel worksheet. Microsoft Excel and Word are popular document formats used by many test organizations to author, store and maintain their test assets. These document formats are easy to use and widely available.
So if any of your project teams are working on such external data sources and want to import the data involving relevant image files into IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM), they can make use of the RQMExcelImporter utility.
In fact, RQM software helps teams share information seamlessly, use automation to accelerate project schedules and report on metrics for informed release decisions.
Rational Quality Manager helps quality assurance teams by providing the below functionalities.
Below is one such scenario which will describe how to import a few test assets and an image specifically into RQM. It also describes a defect behavior of the imported images (part of Test Case Design section in RQM), not getting exported to PDF file, though the import was successful.
For example: Image is successfully imported into Test case design section, but when we create a comprehensive PDF export, the image does not get exported. Interestingly, if you manually cut past an image within the Test Case Design section in RQM, the import gets exported to PDF successfully.
Debugging this problem, prompted a couple of questions like...
Let's analyze this scenario now...
Below is the snapshot of the data which is documented in the MS Excel worksheet.
Following is the Configuration file (CFG file) which will map to each entries present in the rows and columns of this worksheet .
Using the RQMExcelImporter utility, import the Excel data into RQM and you should see the data layout as shown below:
So, once you have the data imported, you can export this data to available PDF formats in RQM.
However the exported PDF does not display the image as you can see in the below snapshot:

Our folks were busy the last few weeks of 2013 pulling together some new educational material to help you better understand how you can use test case execution records with IBM Rational Quality Manager (RQM). A new six part video series was published to help explain how you can use test case execution records to plan, execute, and report on testing activities.
These videos are included in the Rati

One of the IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) users, having an integration with Focal Point (FP) were planning to move the production database
1. Server Rename
2. Isolate the production and the test environment at network level.
I welcome any comments, suggestions on this note.
