Pinned topic RMC 7.5.2 now available

‏2012-06-14T21:18:03Z |
Rational Method Composer version 7.5.2 is now available from http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24032821. It includes new features for RMC/Jazz integration, modifying existing types (including support for RACI), and a simple UI for project process customization. For more information about the release, see: http://www.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?infotype=AN&subtype=CA&htmlfid=897/ENUS212-244&appname=USN

The following tech notes provide detailed information about each of these new features:

TITLE: How to create a team process
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27027352
ABSTRACT: When a project team decides on a process, you will typically choose an existing RMC configuration that is close to what is needed, and then make a number of small changes to make it fit. The Team Process perspective makes this easy to do.

TITLE: How to modify an existing method type
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27025164
ABSTRACT: Modifications to an existing method type can be specified using an xml file, "user_defined_types.xml". Any type, including both IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC) standard types and user-defined types, can be modified.

TITLE: Generating a Jazz Process Template
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27027353
ABSTRACT: A Jazz Process Template configures the behavior of a project area in a Jazz-based tool such as Rational Team Concert (RTC). IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC) 7.5.2 provides a capability to create a Jazz Process Template for version 4.0 Jazz products.

TITLE: How to update a Jazz Project Area using Rational Method Composer
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27027354
ABSTRACT: IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC) provides a capability to update a Jazz project area while a project is in progress. Specifically, you can create project roles, work items, work item templates, and work item types from corresponding elements in RMC. Note that RMC cannot yet model all relationships, such as work item states, work flows, and permissions, so you may need to do further customizations using Jazz interfaces.



The following are new tech notes describing previously released features:

TITLE: How to create a user-defined type
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27027351
ABSTRACT: You can create your own user-defined types with unique attributes and associations. Up to seven custom rich text fields can be added to the "Detail Information" section. Other elements can be referenced (using the "References" tab), and these will appear in the treebrowser. You can add additional custom attributes, tables, and relationships by further modifying the user-defined type (see topic "Modifying an Existing Type").

TITLE: Rational Method Composer command line options
URL: http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27027017
ABSTRACT: IBM Rational Method Composer (RMC) has a number of command line options that configure how RMC behaves when launched. RMC can also be executed from a batch script, and the command line options can be used to performed repetitive operations, such as publishing. This article describes each of the command line options, and what it does.

Cheers,

    I checked my IBM Installation Manager and this release does not show up there. Is there a link that will take me to the download so I can upgrade my 7.5.1.1 version?

      Hi there,

      You can download RMC 7.5.2 from http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/r/rup/?S_CMP=rnav

      If you have an existing RMC release installed, just start IBM Installatio Manager and do an update. IM will automatically find the right repository to update your existing RMC to the latest 7.5.2.

      Thanks very much.
      Bing.

    I tried out to modify existing method types. I could get it work for rich text sections. But for attribute (choice) no attribute tab appears to edit those attributs.

      Here is a small example that works for me:

          <modifiedType id="org.eclipse.epf.uma.Task">
              <section id="com.abc.Task.enactGuide" type="attribute" >
                  <name>Some example attributes</name>
                  <attribute id="com.abc.Task.enactGuide.choices" valueType="choice">
                      <name>Choices</name>
                      <value id="a">High</value>
                      <value id="b">Low</value>
                  </attribute>
               </section>
              
          </modifiedType>

        Also make sure you are using the latest RMC release - choice attributes is a relatively new feature.
