Navigating the IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation V4.0.1 Web UI and working with artifacts- This presentation gives an overview of IBM Rational DOORS Next Generation web client's user interface. We learn about accessing a requirements project, finding artifacts, exploring artifact details, creating views, and some basic editing of artifacts.
Last month the following technotes were the most heavily reused when closing PMRs opened by you, our clients. Hot off the presses is the top content reused during November to help solve your Rational Focal Point, Rational Change, or Rational Quality Manager issues. We hope that highlighting them here will help others encountering the same or similar issues also find quick resolution:
Have you found a technote that helped you solve an issue without having to open a PMR? Let us know by rating and leaving feedback on that content using the "Rate this page" stars on the top right of the content or the box of the same name at the bottom of each technote! Your feedback is highly valuable to us as we work to improve the quality of solutions and help you sole issues more effectively and efficiently.

Last week, we rolled out a new release of the IBM Support Portal! We've been listening to your feedback across various channels and have worked hard to continually improve our offerings and capabilities to provide you with the right answers to your challenges.
Take a quick look below at some of the top changes we've implemented, but don't linger here too long; you'll want to jump over to the IBM Support Portal to see the changes for yourself!
IBM has replaced the banner image with a new “Support shortcuts” module. This new module contains the links to the top 5 support tasks based on your feedback.
- Clicking on the Fixes (downloads) link in the new “Support shortcuts” module opens up a “Refine my fix list" window. This window allows you to select version and OS, then continue to a list of specific fixes. You may also select the “Show me more options” link in the “Refine my fix list” window. This link will take you to the full IBM Fix Central site, where you may find additional product fixes.
- Clicking on the Open a new service request link in the new “Support shortcuts” module opens up the IBM Service Request site. Clicking on the “Service requests & PMRs” link in the top navigation tabs will also open the IBM Service Request application. This site has also been updated recently with new layout and links. This site allows you to work with all aspects of your service requests.
- Clicking on the Product documentation link in the new “Support shortcuts” module opens a focused search results page showing just the documentation for that product. You may either use the left nav to navigate to the answer and/or search this list using the “Search within results” field.
- Clicking on the Problem resolution link in the new “Support shortcuts” module opens a focused search results page showing just the technical library documents for that product. You may either use the left nav to navigate to the answer and/or search this list using the “Search within results” field.
- Clicking on the Plan an installation or upgrade link in the new “Support shortcuts” module opens a focused search results page showing just the support documents written as helpful for installs or upgrades for your products. You may either use the left nav to navigate to the answer and/or search this list using the “Search within results” field.
- Clicking on the Communities link in the top navigation tabs will open the new Communities page. IBM has greatly simplified this page, leaving only 3 to five main links for each product. Additionally, IBM has added social business feeds appropriate for each product. “More” will open up a new page with additional community links. You are able to filter the social business feeds using “Filter results”.

Enterprise application development has sprawled beyond any single platform. IT organizations rely on a mix of Intel, mainframe and Power hardware to support business operations, and to stay ahead, developers need to tackle challenges beyond any one platform. Also, development skills and tooling deployed on one platform need to be portable - mainframe to mobile - so advantages can be applied everywhere.
We invite you to join this webcast to get first-hand knowledge and understanding of typical challenges and myths surrounding multiplatform development. See a demonstration of the latest multiplatform development tooling and techniques to help mitigate these issues.
