Jazz Reporting Service (JRS) Workshop - Authored by Rosa Naranjo and Sudhakar Frederick, this workshop is intended to provide insight into the Jazz Reporting Service (JRS) introduced in CLM v5.0 and updated recently in v5.0.2. Jazz Reporting Service (JRS) is a lightweight reporting solution that provides practitioners with the ability to create their own reports in a powerful yet easy to use interface (without requiring Cognos expertise).
There is a YouTube video series on JRS below as well as a few Jazz.net articles along with the workshop instructions, so click through to learn more!

Here are typical steps that needs to be followed to set up TCP recording in Rational Integration Tester ( RIT ) . Suppose the TCP/IP application is running on the port 9089 on a <Application host>
4. Once the above configuration is set , start the recording on the Logical Component that was created. you should be able to see the messages in the recording stuido of RIT.

In a very typical scenario, To create a test, many testers currently sit at a PC and alternate between completing an action in the application under test and writing the step on a notepad. When the test is complete on paper, the tester (or in some cases an administrative assistant for the testing group) types the steps into a standard test template, frequently using either Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel. Following this procedure, a single manual test is essentially written twice.
Eliminating the need to write each test twice can save you time for other testing.
In addition to writing tests twice, much time is spent adapting existing tests for similar new tests. For example, a tester might create a test to log into the application under test as an administrator, and then adapt that test to log into the application under test as a regular user. This adaptation typically takes one of two forms:
• Open the existing test, edit steps as needed, and save the test with a new filename.
• Open a new test template, copy steps from the existing test, edit steps as needed, and save the new test.
Reducing duplication among many tests reduces the time you spend maintaining test scripts.
Testers typically receive many new software builds during a development cycle, often at an increasingly rapid rate toward the end of the cycle.
When a build contains a new feature or a fix that requires modifying the steps of a test, all of the tests that relate to the new feature or fix must be updated to reflect the change in the application under test. Although this update process is not difficult to manage when only a few tests require updating, when dozens (or hundreds) of tests are affected by changes to a commonly used area of the application under test, such as a login screen, updating can be very time-consuming. Eliminating or reducing the work that is required to keep many tests up to date can save you time for additional testing.
As you increase the efficiency of your testing effort, you can use the saved time to conduct additional tests. Rational Quality Manager can help you work more efficiently in each of the testing activities:
• Creating tests: Rational Quality Manager helps you to manage reusable content and use it in similar tests. As a result, you spend less time authoring tests.
• Running tests: Rational Quality Manager associates text to be typed in the application under test with an execution step. Rational Quality Manager also associates verification text with a test step, and then compares the comparison. Rational Quality Manager provides test data variables so that you can define a test once and run it many times to accommodate different data input values. These features save you time typing in the application under test, comparing actual to expected results, and testing different data values.
• Reporting test results: Rational Quality Manager provides customizable reports that reflect test result data from all phases of the project. These reports save time that you would have spent manually tabulating test results for reporting.
• Maintaining tests: Rational Quality Manager reduces the amount of required test maintenance by storing reusable content only once. As a result, you spend less time updating many similar tests.
