How to use Rational Asset Analyzer with Rational Insight for metrics reports: Part 1. Create the custom query for data export
Summary: You can use IBM® Rational® Asset Analyzer to inventory and analyze distributed applications that are composed of languages such as Java, HTML, JavaServer Pages (JSPs), and, to a limited extent, C++ and XML. Rational Insight is a cross- project and cross-product reporting tool that offers customizable control over data and performance. Used together, they help organizations understand how they're using applications and where they could reduce application maintenance costs. This article, part one of a three-part series, describes how to use these tools together by using the Rational Asset Analyzer REST interface. The example concentrates on moving data from the Rational Asset Analyzer repository and turning it into reportable metrics within Rational Insight.
We published Part 2 this week:
