John Kelly (devthack) has been blogging on the IBM Rational community blog about Rational Integration Tester (RIT) for quite a while now. Here's a roll up of all his relevant posts on the topic to help you learn more about RIT and see examples to help you build your own test suites:
Rational Integration Tester - First steps: This is a step-by-step introduction to Rational® Integration Tester (RIT) for new users. It avoids, as far as possible, reference to use of a particular technology so the basic functionality of the product is seen more clearly. For more in-depth information on the product, see my reading list.
Rational Integration Tester - Running a "Hello World" Test: After reading this you should be able to create and run a simple "Hello World" test within Rational Integration Tester.
Rational® Integration Tester (RIT) supports testing of various domains and technologies and you'll find most blogs cover testing one or more of these technologies with RIT. This series of blog entries is ignoring all of that. By focusing on a very simple one-line test it hopes to help the reader understand some of the basic building blocks of the product set.
Rational integration Tester - Saving the results of a "Hello World" Test Suite: After reading this you should be able to save the results of a simple "Hello World" test in a Results Database and view those Test Results within Rational® Integration Tester. Note: It is assumed that you're read
Rational Integration Tester - Running a "Hello World" Test Suite from the Command Line: After reading this you should be able to run a simple "Hello World" test suite from the Command line using Rational® Integration Test
Rational Integration Tester - Running a "Hello World" Test Suite using an Ant task: After reading this you should be able to run a simple "Hello World" test suite using an Ant script using Rational® Integration Test
Rational Integration Tester example - Creating a test from WSDL: This video shows how to create a simple test of a web service from a WSDL definition using Rational Integration Tester (RIT). The "echo" web service used in the example is one of several that are built-in to IBM's Rational Test Virtualization Server (RTVS). RIT is part of IBM's Rational Test Workbench (RTW).
Rational Integration Tester - ready-to-run example projects now available for download: The developers in the Rational Integration Tester team have just made available some ready-to-run RIT/RTVS examples via the GitHub proj
Rational Integration Tester - Reading List: Over the last few weeks, while starting to blog about Rational Integration Tester (RIT), I've come across a few gems and so thought I'd make myself a reading list and share it with you here.
What sort of samples would you like to see from the Rational Integration Tester team? The development team for Rational Integration Tester (and associated products) have a new home on GitHub. This is where you'll be able to download sample RIT projects, and other assets.

I suspect I could get DOORS Web Access (DWA) installed and running on Windows in 5 minutes. But I hear grumbling about it so I am sharing and timing a DWA 188.8.131.52 install in a rush. I’m usually in a rush.
[Start the stopwatch]
It is important to wait for it to start, as the first time you start it, it is uncompressing the .war files and putting them in different places - this can take minutes. If you interrupt it, you get partly deployed war files which will cause problems later.
When in the Tomcat window you see the message 'INFO: Server startup in xx ms', it should be done
[Stop the stopwatch]
24min 11sec. This included downloading and first draft of this blog. So 5 minutes is not in fact possible for me, I stand corrected. Downloading and starting are the slowest parts.
Avoid problems by having the DOORS client and DWA at the same version level and make sure that the client can start and that you don’t interrupt the tomcat start. If the database server is on the same machine, it is usually best to also upgrade it in order to avoid any DLL compatibility issues.

WHAT COMPELS AN IBM PARTNER TO PUT SUCH A MAGNITUDE OF TRUST IN IBM RATIONAL AVP?
One of IBM’s largest competitors is also one of IBM's most important business partners for software and systems. This Consulting Firm’s goal is to standardize how they approach software delivery for their clients. They consider Rational to be a good technology fit in this area, so they have made the Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution and other Rational products the critical foundation of their software delivery process. This is a clear endorsement of IBM Rational products and strategy by one of the world’s leading companies.
Since 2007, this Consulting Firm has also invested in a successfully evolving partnership with the experienced Rational Accelerated Value Program (AVP) team. AVP is Predictive, Preemptive and Proactive - bringing fast ROI for Rational Software clients across the globe. Consulting Firm relies on their AVP team for advice on their overall software deployment strategy, guidance on successful roll out of Rational tools, and the management of expedited resolution for cost-inducing software issues. The client considers the AVP team to be a high value extension of their own teams and have granted access to several of their internal systems and environments to make collaboration and troubleshooting easier- showing ultimate trust with IBM AVP.
The flexibility and personalization of the Accelerated Value Program has meant that the service continuously adapts to align with Consulting Firm's needs, so it is no surprise that the by the end of their current contract they will have been a AVP client for a full decade! AVP’s comprehensive knowledge of their customer’s business goals, ecosystem and topology helps ensure that the team is well positioned to dynamically respond to changing business conditions, partnering for continued success.
EXAMPLES OF HOW CONSULTING FIRM’S BUSINESS WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPACTED WITHOUT THE GUIDANCE OF THE EXPERIENCED RATIONAL ACCELERATED VALUE PROGRAM TEAM
2. Working with IBM Level 2 support and IBM Development, the AVP team arranged for the delivery of more than 20 hotfixes for Consulting Firm's CLM deployments in 2013. Without these hotfixes Consulting Firm would have had to upgrade all 1000+ of their CLM deployments to each quarterly release. Avoiding 5 additional upgrades saved Consulting Firm $3.08 million (1000 deployments X 8 hours per upgrade X 5 upgrades X $77/hr FTE cost).
OVER THE PAST YEAR, THE AVP TEAM HAS COLLABORATED ON SEVERAL WINS WITH CONSULTING FIRM’S STAKEHOLDERS. READ JUST SOME OF THE IMPRESSIVE AVP ACHIEVEMENTS BELOW:
WHAT’S AHEAD FOR THE CONSULTING FIRM’S AVP PARTNERSHIP IN THE FUTURE?
