    Chandra,

    In your learning roadmap just below where you find the link to the video, there should be another link that says  
    YOU NEED A PASSCODE TO VIEW THIS - Click HERE to get the passcode
    Follow that link to get to the page with the passcode
     
    An image can be set up for you when you are ready to start using it, but it will only be available for a limited time, so it is best to get it running only when you are ready to use it.  Your local business partner contact should be able to arrange this for you - that would be the person who arranged for you to join the learning circle.

    Hi

    You can have a cloud instance for 21 days. This should be enough time. If it is not then you can always request another one.

     

    Send an email to lcsuppt@us.ibm.com, and COPY/PASTE the following text into the subject line:

    LEARNING CIRCLE - REQUEST FOR MACHINE INSTANCE

    Within 48 hours, you will receive the information for how to access your machine.
    All machines use the Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop Client, which is included with WindowsXP and later versions.

    Hi all,

    after being through milestone 2a.

    I would like to give a hint regarding the resetDatabase Test, which is mainly about passing data between tests in Chapter 18.

    The input file provided and used. has an empty column of middlename. This leads to a null value, which is passed to the SQL insert operation. In my project this was not accepted on the execution of the INSERT SQL command.

    I have fixed this by setting the middlename hardcoded. For the case that anybody has an idea how to make the SQL operation work with a passed null, I would be very interested in that.

    Best regards,

    Max

    Hi Max,

    There shouldn't be a problem with that example - I've tested it a number of times.  My best guess is that you've set "Treat empty strings as null" on in the data source configuration.  It should be off by default, and if it's left off, it should give an empty string, rather than a null value.  An empty string shouldn't cause any problems with the tests that you're asked to create.

    Could you please check this - if that's not the case, please add a screenshot of the configuration of the data source within RIT.

    In case anyone's curious how you would handle the situation of being passed a null value, you could use a short bit of ECMA Script to check for a null value in your tag, then set it to a default value if it's null, and otherwise leave it alone.  That's a bit more complex than what we want to do in the training course, but makes things a bit more reliable in the real world.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Hi Morgan

    Thanks for the response.

    This is the first time i am trying to access the Remote desktop.

    I had a response from Support team stating  that they have restarted the machine and advised to retry, i did try this morning, but it is  still an issue with the same error.

    Please advise.

    Thanks

    Hi Matt,

    I checked the "treat empty strings as null" checkbox, but it was unchecked, like the default value is.

    I was not sure what might have been the problem, so that I tried again to get this test running. Now it works.

    The only small problem I was facing on the second try, was due to a wrong placed comma. Maybe such a problem was the reason, when I tried it last week. But usually this can be easily seen, du to the blue underline.

    Anyway, you are right, it works as described. Thanks for your help,

    Max

    Hi Chandra,

    There are two certifications available, you can find details here: http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/rl_index.shtml

    The two you are looking for are:

    IBM Certified Associate Developer - Rational Integration Tester V8 - Click here

    and

    IBM Certified Associate Developer - Rational Test Virtualization Server V8 - Click here

    The first covers Integration Testing (from Milestones 2a and 2b) and the second covers Service Virtualization (from Milestone 2c) and has the first test as a pre-requisite.

     

    Hope this helps.

    Hi

    Please advise on the below listed questions.

    1)Is there any Cloud implementation template available
    2)What time frames do we need to quote to set up/implement cloud test environments
    3)How is the security maintained
    4)Is there a way to raise and track defects using RIT or do we have to use QC separately for defects initiation&tracking.

    Thanks&Regards

    Hi,

    We are moving to providing demonstration and PoT environments to SkyTap, see the Systems Middleware Demonstrations in Skytap blog announcement for more details and instructions on how to access a cloud instance.

    To learn how to perform basic operations on SkyTap, see Lunch and Learn: Getting Started with Demos on CSIDE / Skytap

    For details of the RTW PoT on SkyTap refer to Service Virtualization & Integration Testing Demonstration and Proof of Technology 

     

    I am not sure what the support email is that have that is bouncing. What support do you want? If its to do with cloud instances then try SkyTap first.
