Notes from Rational Support
Both the Telelogic and AppScan Source (formally Ounce) product lines have gone live in the Rational RFE Community. A segment of the Telelogic product lines became available on February 1st, while a segment of the AppScan Source product lines became available in early January.
The Rational RFE Community enables you to submit your own idea for a new "request for enhancement" (RFE). Our development teams will review your request and provide status updates throughout its life cycle. You can even search, view, comment, and watch other RFEs based on the products you are interested in, allowing for deeper collaboration with our development teams and other product users. The RFE community also provides tools so you can keep track of the RFEs you've submitted, voted for, or simply are interested in!
Get involved today and help directly drive improvement to the products you use!

One of our own Technical Support Engineers and content creators has his own blog on developerWorks and is now delivering some great ClearCase specific information to help address issues he discovers in the course of his job supporting the product.
Pedro Luiz Teixeira de Moura is just getting started with his blog, but already has some quality posts in his back pocket of the archives for you to check out:

This topic comes up frequently. Sometimes a customer will have a set of existing service tests and the server has been changed to require TLS 1.2 and the service tests no longer work. Or the customer is trying to record a new service test using the General Service Client and can't get a valid response after invoking the request.
The error message reported by RPT will be similar to:
RPWY0002E An exception occurred in com.ibm.rational.test.lt.models.wscore.transport.impl.HttpTransporterImpl
This usually means TLS 1.2 is required.
Unlike a HTTP test where a specific version of TLS can be set for each server, the version of TLS is global setting for all calls in a service test. The version is similar to one of the properties listed at http://www-01.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSYKE2_7.0.0/com.ibm.java.security.component.70.doc/security-component/jsse2Docs/overrideSSLprotocol.html.
The default value used by General Service Client is SSL_TLS. However RPT will not use the property com.ibm.jsse2.overrideDefaultProtocol but use the property com.ibm.rational.test.lt.soa.ssl.protocols instead
We need to set this property in two separate places so it can be used for recording as well as playback
Like for recording we need to set the same -Dcom.ibm.rational.test.lt.soa.ssl.protocols=TLSv1.2 for the playback engine of the test. The only way to do this in RPT is
to put the test in a schedule, then configure the schedule to run on a location instead of local computer. Then we add the -Dcom.ibm.rational.test.lt.soa.ssl.protocols=TLSv1.2 as a property of the location.
1. install the RPT Agent, on the same machine as RPT workbench is OK.
7. Add a property for this location with the value RPT_VMARGS= -Dcom.ibm.rational.test.lt.soa.ssl.protocols=TLSv1.2
8. run the schedule
The playback should now work. Remember the test will never be able to be run standalone any more if TLS 1.2 is required, it must be run in a schedule using an agent and a RPT_VMARGS set for that agent following the steps above
February 17 is coming up fast.
What's February 17th?
Our CCRC Open Mic Call, that's what!
A new thread has been opened on the ClearCase developerWorks forum, where we are soliciting your input ... please feel free to post your questions on the thread, and be sure to join us on February 17th at 1pm EST to talk with some of our resident CCRC 7.0.1/7.1 experts.
Hope to "see" you there!
