This article discusses how you can identify the "Actual Start and End Dates" in Rational Quality Manager.
There will be instances where a testing effort would be delayed and one needs to capture the actual date it started as apposed to the planned date it was supposed to be started.
The planned start and end dates are inherited from the dates in the timeline, as are the actual dates that are shown in brackets next to the iteration name.
The following steps lists the steps you will need to perform to edit the Actual dates:
1. Navigate to 'Test Plan > Test Schedule'
3. Edit the dates under the Planned Start Date and enter the description as required
Also, the other way is to define the "Custom attributes" in the test plan where you will need to manually enter the Proposed / Actual Start / End dates.
When you are defining the custom attributes you may mark the 'Planned/Proposed Start and End Dates" as "Required" so that one cannot save the test plan without specifying the planned dates.
While creating the test plan this should look like below:
You can use the "Browse Test Plans" and compare the 'Actual Start / End Dates' Vs 'Planned / Proposed Start / END Dates".

Rational Performance Tester supports the TN3270 protocol. However, the TN5250 protocol is still undergoing testing.
The recording of the application using TN5250 protocol is possible using the Socket protocol, as there is no specific protocol recorder provided for this. Identifying and debugging issues which arise during a re-run of the recorded test is difficult using the Socket protocol. Although it is not advisable to use the Socket protocol; there is no other option currently available to use Rational Performance Tester with applications using the TN5250 protocol.

Correlation of cookies is not mandatory in RPT. During playback some values which are recorded during scripting are sent to the server to be processed, but these values most of the time are dynamic in nature, and they do not form the page content during response from the server. Cookies are usually cached to be reused by the page, but these do not give the correct response time for the page content. Hence, some times the test is run by disabling the cache. To summarize, no it is not necessary to correlate cookie in RPT, as they do not form the basic contents of the page.

It is somewhat of a bitter-sweet day for me as I hand off ownership of this blog to a new team of colleagues to take this space and bring it to even higher levels of value. I'm letting go of this blog as part of my transition in to the IBM IoT support organization where I am working on social business strategy and logistics like I did for Rational Support all these years.
As you may have already noted from the about section to the right side here, I am leaving this blog in the very capable hands of Denise McKinnon and Naomi Guerrero. I couldn't be more pleased to leave this institution in their hands, much like Kelly Smith did for me a few years back. Rest assured, you will get the same if not better information and value from this blog moving forward as you did previously.
But now I hear you asking... What IS IBM IoT Support? And THAT, my friends, is a great question!
IBM IoT Support is a team of IBMers who are now part of the new IBM Internet of Things organization supporting the tools makers like you need to build components and connected devices. IBM IoT Support is focused on helping you, the makers, with your product questions by providing content relating to the various products covered by our new division.
Through our focused support of asset management and continuous engineering tools, we are here to provide you with the best support in the industry; to help you be successful with the applications and components to ensure your work on the connected devices in the Internet of Things brings you the right value.
The products we support here include:
There's no change in the way you will obtain support for the products you already own, the only change you'll likely see is the addition of a few new social channels like our blog, our new Twitter account, and our new Youtube channel to help get you the right content at the right time. Our technotes can all be found in their same locations per product, and the process for contacting support to open a Problem Management Request (PMR) remains the same as well. We hope you'll follow us in our new spaces!
Cheers to you all!

In this article Shanker Prasad Perumal and Syed Attaullah demonstrate how to use the new features in IBM Rational Test Workbench to perform two important aspects of performance testing on mobile apps: Response time measurements and Resource monitoring.
Given the explosive growth of mobile smartphone use and mobile application development, mobile test automation is a key requirement to enable successful and fast delivery of quality mobile applications. Automated functional testing of mobile applications has helped ensure that the desired functionality of the mobile app and the user flow in the application work as expected. However, there is a significant need to move beyond just functional testing of mobile apps. There are numerous performance aspects of those apps that need to be measured and enhanced. There is a direct correlation between a mobile app's performance and the end user experience of the app.
Are you a visual learner? Watch Shanker go through the steps to analyze the performance of a mobile app:
