In Rational Test RealTime (RTRT) I want to test function foo() in the sample source code, where I will expect stub call some_Task(), but some_Task() function is present in endless loop.
To handle this endless loop, in order to do that I need to foreclose exit through RTRT from function foo().
I can use setjmp()/longjmp functionality to "exit" a test under certain condition. If some_Task() is stubbed then it can be done.
The below steps explain how to resume the execution of the test script when user code has reached an handled exception:
- stub the function that would put the user program in 'stopped' mode or 'exit'
- resume the execution of the test (using setjmp/longjmp combination)
First of all, the ptu has to include the header file <setjmp.h>
Note the use of '@' that would prevent the PTU parser to search for this file.
At this stage, the compiler header files might not be available.
Then, the setjmp structure has to be declared:
DEFINE STUB PTU_globalvar
Then, a user function has to be stubbed :
DEFINE STUB STUB_c
Then, in the test code include :
@if( ! setjmp( failure_setjump) )
This should help in forming a test case to handle the endless loops.

Greetings from the main tent at Innovate. Here we are in the second full day of events and the mornings have been exciting. The band welcomed us all and after yesterday's lightning sessions I was looking forward to some panels and speakers. First up was Robert Leblanc, SVP of Middleware. What I gleaned from him was that our customers clearly understand the latest trends of mobile, Cloud and more but they feel they are very unprepared to adopt and react to those trends. Seems like an opportunity for us to help them with the transition. I loved the example he gave with the Ford Fusion and how it contains over 15 million lines of code by the time it is complete and coming off the line. It is a walking data center. Also interesting was the how he positioned devOps to be more of and enterprise process and not an IT process. I think this shift will allow more of our customers outside of the traditional ALM and IT space to participate. I also heard a clear call to action with the directive to improve the speed of delivery of our offerings to map to the entire mobile paradigm and allowing customers to update at will at a very quick pace from the appStore.
Our final event was an interview with Alan Brown and Steve Wozniak. He focused on the fact that he designed things completely for himself and was "an engineer at heart". He did not always rely on existing documentation and design principles but worked to reverse engineer and improve upon them. He would offer challenges to himself to build something with less parts and that is what drove the entire simplicity model. Mr. Wosniak worked on many different projects and didn't ever discount those efforts. He also said it is not always easy to recognize innovation and what can be turned into money but that his partnership with Steve Jobs really helped there. What he brought to the table was the ability to be disruptive, and to not just learn the answers to the test but to ask thought provoking questions on a regular basis. This message resounded well with me as I see my own children often look for the answers instead of trying to figure out answers for themselves.

In a mobile, social world software is a mission critical for achieving competitive advantage.
At Innovate we have the opportunity to interact with some of IBM’s large clients with the most complex software environments. These customers have invested hundreds of millions of dollars in IBM solutions and have come to understand that the efficacy, with which they are deployed, administered and maintained impacts every facet of their business. In the current wave of disruptive transformation entire processes are being impacted by social technologies and over the next decade social business computing will pervade every business function. Thus, social strategies must be fully incorporated with the business plan and objectives and an integral part of the pervasive, mobile computing environment.

Here's an article which may have flown under your radar if you only watch developerWorks Rational. This one comes to you from the developerWorks IBM i Technical Library and covers some great technical details covering database modernization from DDS to SQL with Rational Open Access: RPG Edition:
Moving from a DDS to SQL database on DB2 for i can be accomplished without changing a single line of program code or recompiling a program. Converting a program to use advanced SQL techniques involved extensive program modifications or total rewrites, until now. With the addition of Rational Open Access: RPG Edition, advanced SQL coding techniques can be utilized by adding as little as 1 line of code to an existing RPG program. In this article I will describe how to use Rational Open Access: RPG Edition to take advantage of advanced data centric programming techniques only available via SQL programming.
About the Author: Daniel R. Cruikshank, Senior Consultant, IBM
Dan has over 39 years experience in the IT industry, predominantly IBM Rochester systems and RPG. Dan also has over 20 years of SQL experience. He currently teaches DB2 for i Optimization and Data Centric Programming techniques utilizing embedded SQL. Dan specializes in application performance troubleshooting and database reengineering.

Web UI Theming feature gives a Jazz Team Server administrator the ability to modify the look and feel of the Web UI for all users of that Jazz Team Server.
A theme can contain any number of *.css files. The *.css files in the theme can create new CSS rules, or they can override existing rules. If a CSS rule defined in an active theme exactly matches a CSS rule defined by the Jazz Team Server, the CSS rule defined by the theme will take precedence.
Tip: If you would like to alter the appearance of a certain UI element, use a tool like Firebug to inspect the DOM node and see what CSS rules are affecting its appearance. You can then create a theme that overrides those rules in order to alter the element's appearance.
I am listing examples where a logo can be modified either using a 'publicly accessible' image or an image file on a local machine.
Using a 'publicly accessible ' image. You can replace the hyperlink with your custom logo and modify the dimensions in css as per your requirement.
Similarly, upload the step 3 zip file for ccm and qm applications.

IBM Champion nominations for Rational are open!
Whether through developerWorks, jazz.net or social media, peer-to-peer participation helps you obtain the skills you need to be successful with Rational solutions. In some communities, you might have noticed colleagues or business partners who actively evangelize Rational tools and practices by running user groups, managing websites, speaking at conferences, writing books or blogs, or sharing their knowledge through relevant social media, and online forums. All of these activities bring value to our user communities. The IBM Champion program recognizes these innovative thought leaders in the technical community — and rewards these contributors by amplifying their voice and increasing their sphere of influence. An IBM Champion is an IT professional, business leader, developer, or educator who influences and mentors others to help them make best use of IBM software, solutions, and services. Even more notably, IBM Champions are not employees of IBM. But what's that all really mean? What do IBM Champions get out of this? With only a week to go, we encourage you to pause for a moment and identify those colleagues or partners whom you feel make significant contributions and nominate them to the IBM Champion program before its too late!
