Notes from Rational Support
License borrowing, you ask?
License borrowing is a way that enables you to run software on a computer that is not continuously connected to a license server on the network. Review the details in the white paper to learn more about License borrowing: what the feature is, which products are supported and instructions on configuration and usage.

Hot off the presses, here's a great new whitepaper just released yesterday. This paper is jam packed with info intended to provide you with a comprehensive guide to successfully use the integration between Rational System Architect and All Fusion CA-Erwin:
Author: Rajesh Avanthi
Abstract: This document describes how to integrate IBM Rational System Architect with CA-Erwin modeling tool and will assist in better understanding the metabridge functionalities which supports the export and import of logical data models as well as Physical data models from CA-Erwin to Rational System Architect.
This paper intends to provide you with a comprehensive guide to successfully use the integration between Rational System Architect and All Fusion CA-Erwin. The purpose is to merely serve as an aid in bringing the logical and physical data models from CA-Erwin into Rational System Architect and thus helping you to enhance the modeling designs in Rational System Architect.
From a business perspective, integrating the two major Enterprise Architect applications (Rational System Architect and CA-Erwin) should serve better and provide a strong base for fulfilling the business needs by providing a pathway from strategic enterprise architecture to tangible solution delivery.

Another new whitepaper published: ClearCase 8.0 VOB Schema 80 and Feature Level 7 migration strategies
AcdntlPoet 2700019V2G Tags:  rational whitepapers rational-client-support rational-clearcase 7,743 Views
It is a two-fer this Friday! In addition to the Rational Performance Tester whitepaper published earlier, we have a second treat for you in the form of this new ClearCase 8.0 whitepaper on VOB Schema and feature level 7 migration strategies! Check it out:
Abstract: This white paper provides you with information about IBM Rational ClearCase 8.0 migration strategies for VOB Schema 80 and Feature Level 7.
ClearCase version 8.0 introduced both a VOB Schema and Feature Level update to allow for new functionality within the release. To be able to benefit from these changes, existing ClearCase 7.x and prior VOBs will require both a database reformat and then an update to the new Feature Level. While a ClearCase version 8.0 VOB server can support both Schema 54 and Schema 80 VOBs simultaneously, careful planning must be done to minimize downtime and ensure a successful migration from Schema 54 to 80 as well as the Feature Level update.

Any project that is taken up by your organization needs the knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to see success. Each of these tools requires them to be licensed so that there is an authentic and a transparent way to deliver the project seamlessly. The choice of tools and the licenses involved come at a cost to the organization.
