Pinned topic .dsf file syntax

‏2011-04-05T19:45:42Z |
Hello,

I am interested in .dsf file syntax.
I would like to know how the file is built up.
Is there anywhere the document about it?

Thanks in advance.

    Have never heard of ".dsf" files in relation to DOORS - did a search of the DOORS 9.2 client install and Database server just in case a new file type has been slipped in, but found nothing.

    Can you explain where you have seen ".dsf" files.

    Or maybe you mean ".dxl" which is the DOORS Extension Language script files?

    Hi Paul,

    If you want to export/import module from/to DOORS you can use eXhange tool.
    eXcange tool create one .zip file from one DOORS module.
    That .zip file contains one .dsf file.

    The eXchange solution is still and worldwide available (local purchase) - not only in Germany.

    Here are some information about:

    The professional services team of IBM Rational in Germany is able to provide a solution which allows data exchange between different versions (e.g. 8.x to 9.x and vice versa). The solution called "IBM Rational DOORS Data Exchange Add-On" (also known as eXchange) was developped for the German automotive industry where the need for data exchange - especially between OEM and suppliers - is tremendous. The "Data Exchange Add-On" does not only transfer data between different DOORS databases (probably having different versions), it also supports a certain data exchange process making sure that data can only be modified in one of the involved databases.

    The main features of the "IBM Rational DOORS Data Exchange Add-On" are:

    + Transfer DOORS modules from OEM to (multiple) supplier(s)
    + View-based
    + Allows transfer of write access on dedicated „supplier attributes“
    + Data transfer between different DOORS versions

    + Return feedback from supplier(s) to OEM
    + Feedback either in „supplier attributes“ or in separate DOORS modules

    + Update DOORS modules in both directions
    + Modifications are highlighted when updating

    + Export existing baseline and recreate it in other database
    + Different versions for different suppliers

    The eXchange asset produces a .zip-file, in this .zip-file there is a .dsf-file.
    So having a .dsf-file indicates the usage of the IBM Rational DOORS Data Exchange Add On.

    For more information incl. connecting to a local IBM contact please send a message to me:

    Hi Birgit,

    Are there plans to open a group on Developer Works for Data Exchange FAQs, questions etc.? I think it would be very useful.

    Hi Colm,

    sounds as a very good idea to me.

    I am going to check and discuss this point with some people in here and will come back (may take a while...)

    BR, Birgit
