This demonstration shows how to develop embedded software using the Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software development environment. The Rational Rhapsody development environment enables developers to visually capture their applications to automate manual coding tasks and communicate their designs. Learn how to import existing C++ code and synchronize it with a UML model, automatically create diagrams to understand the relationships in the code, and then document the design for external reports.
The workflow integration with Eclipse is illustrated by using Rational Rhapsody Architect for Software to turn the code into a simple 'ping pong' console game. It illustrates how, using code centric settings, dynamic synchronization with the code can be achieved, enabling the user to make updates in either the model or the code while still preserving the existing layout and structure. This enables developers to more easily adopt modeling on existing code projects or where preservation of code layout is critical to success.

southworth 100000HBX4 Tags:  rational rad for smarter 3 software a development part being planet 3,113 Views
This week I'll be talking about RAD and the runtime analysis feature, the debug tool and reverse transformations.
Within RAD, the runtime analysis feature allows you to view the actual execution of the code, which may be different from the intended behavior. With profiling, you can analyze performance, method execution sequences, thread behaviors and code coverage. With the Runtime Analysis feature, you can do:
In addition, RAD provides reverse transformations. It allows teams to work on both the design and the implementation and to reconcile any differences between the two. So for example,let’s say we have an architecture team and an implementation team that are divided, either by geography or because one team is subcontracting to the other, or even by corporate culture. The architecture team completes its version 1.0 of the system, and transforms the model to code.
The implementation team picks up the code and begins to work. The architecture team continues to work on the design, and after some time creates a v1.1 of the architecture. This architecture is forward transformed and integrated with the work done by the implementation team.
So far, so good?
When the architectural deviation is introduced, a dialogue would need to take place between the architecture and implementation teams so that both teams could better understand why the deviation was introduced. The forward transformation that occurs after the reconciliation probably would not delete code elements if those code elements were not the product of forward transformation in the first place. The deletion of the code elements would often be done manually.
and now for the demo..............

This week I'm going to continue the conversation with some additional features RAD has, that will help you develop software in a team environment more affectively. Here I will talk about the RAD database tools, developing portlets and the code review tool.
It is important to know that RAD includes database tools to assist developers in creating and maintaining applications that access and use relational databases. Support is provided for the most commonly used database products. The tools allow developers to access previously defined databases or to create database definitions. Wizards and frameworks are provided for XML-based data access, JavaBeans-based data access, and for using SQLJ to access the data. The tools provided in Rational Application Developer are intended to give a developer everything needed to build applications using relational databases, they are not meant as database administrator (DBA) or data architect tools.
RAD also provides tools for developing portlets. You can construct your portlet much as you would a Web page, by using a visual editor and dragging and dropping components from a palette. There is a Quick Edit view for inserting scripts into your page. There is a Data view that lets you bind data to the UI components. Additionally, there are portlet-specific components, such as Click-2-Action, which creates a data flow between two portlets, and People Awareness, which provides information on users logged into the portal. The tools allow you to create many types of portlets, and to use either the IBM portlet API or the JSR 168 portlet API. Portlets can be tested and debugged within the IDE (integrated development environment) using the included WebSphere Portal Test Environment.
Within RAD, the Code Review tool (used for Code Quality Assurance), is a rule-based static analysis tool, for automatic validation of Java code. It is used for correctness and compliance with coding standards and best practices.
J2SE and J2EE Best Practices
Deep analysis of J2EE code
- validation of data flow across compilation units of a J2EE application
Looks across project without running code – statically
Rules can be extended through rule templates
Quick Code Review – 34 rules
QuickFix (shown as lightbulb)
Complete Code Review – 200+ rules (all rules)
- When you change to the property of rules, change happens for all Reviews
- Rules are part of tool, not the project
And now for the demo.....
This demo shows a typical transfer scenario using the Team Debug feature. It provides an overview of the setup process, the debug artifacts included in a transfer, and how to search and retrieve debug sessions.

As a software development team, what is your challenge? My experience is that development teams need to have a structured approach to application development. A software development team has to develop applications for multiple projects, often running on multiple platforms. The applications must, of course, be of the highest quality and use industry standards and best practices.
- Building scalable applications and services
- Reducing rework and defects
- Improving quality and performance
- Matching application complexity to team skills
- Coordination and planning
These are not easy things to manage. IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD) is the product that addresses the structured application development challenge. RAD provides tools for developing J2EE, portal, Web services, and SOA applications.
It, is built on Eclipse, so it can be extended to meet your needs. It has many visual design and development tools for greater productivity, including UML visual modeling tools, that let you use UML notation to create code.
RAD provides a host of tools for developing and consuming Web services, building components for use in a service-oriented architecture and building web 2.0 applications. It also provides runtime environments on both WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Portal server for development and testing. It can also be used to develop applications running in other runtime environments, such as Tomcat, Geronimo, and others.
RAD comes with a host of visual tools for designing Web sites and Web pages. It provides extensive tooling and support for building JSF applications. It also provides tools to create and use Service Data Objects (SDOs) to access various data sources and to bind SDOs to UI components.
So if you want to be a RAD software development team, you may want to check out Rational Application Developer. It is all part of creating a smarter planet through software and that starts with smart software development tools.

Are you having trouble managing your software assets? Well, your not alone. Many software development organizations do not have a central place to store their reusable, valuable assets. Therefore, they often store an asset as just another version of an artifact among the millions of other versioned artifacts in a software configuration management (SCM) system. Sometimes, the assets are stored on a Web server or on a wiki site. Even when companies provide a consistent place to store and search for these assets, the metadata that describes them is typically either inconsistent or nonexistent. Not having a consistent process to manage your assets makes it difficult to find, and reuse assets quickly. Rational Asset Manager ends the chaos and loss of productivity.
How does it work? Rational Asset Manager is a role-based repository for storing published assets, that have the potential for reuse. This repository can work with various hardware and operating system platforms and offers two types of interface: Web and Eclipse clients. These interfaces include tools that help you search, organize, and download assets. You can also communicate with other users, provide governance, and get statistics.
Rational Asset Manager also integrates with your development environment. Some of the tools it integrates with are Rational ClearQuest, Rational ClearCase, CVS, LDAP, Eclipse and more.
So if you need to organize your house of software assets, check out Rational Asset Manager.

It is amazing that in the last few years, so many companies are jumping on the Green bandwagon. I question some companies I see peddling their products in the name of green. But how about software companies? Can we find the value in Green for software? In the traditional sense, software isn't the first thing people think of when you say Green. We often think of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle with a 1970's perspective. For example, reduce your energy use, recycle materials, and find alternate energy sources. But to make this a better planet, we need to continue to challenge ourselves and look beyond. Not only in our personal lives, but at work as well.
As business people or software developers you may be currently participating in optimized multi-site collaboration and reducing travel, workload costs, and fuel emissions. You may be involved in a multi-site development effort, modernizing legacy applications with SOA services. Now that is the new Green or am I taking huge liberties?
In the developerWorks portfolio of demos, we have a great example of team tools that shows the integration with IBM® Rational® Build Forge and IBM Rational Team Concert. These tools work together seamlessly to provide software assembly for Jazz and traditional muti-site development environments simultaneously. Check out the demo!

Nearly all teams face challenges in getting their clients and other stakeholders involved enough in the requirements stage, of the development process. Especially when defining the outcomes and the details of what it will take to realize those outcomes. Rational Requirements Composer (RRC) is designed to provide a solution for the creation and composition of meaningful requirements, based on user and stakeholder needs.
IBM Rational Requirements Composer can help extended teams understand requirements faster by Using the best notation or sets of notations to communicate client and stakeholder needs by making the latest information available to the whole team, which will help shorten the review and approval cycles.
Teams can save valuable development time by using the web-based review and approval workflow. For example, the ability to have role based (reviewer, approver, optional reviewer) participants, will greatly enhance the ability to help everyone understand their role and what they need to accomplish.
With role base team members, status of both formal and informal reviews are visible to the entire team and automatic notifications help to keep participants engaged and informed. There is no need to maintain a separate record system of the approval process (but if you have one, you can still use it for final approvals).
Without a proper requirements management tool, many tools, document formats and repositories create “information islands”, making it hard to find, relate and use this information as requirements artifacts as well as use use it to inform downstream lifecycle activities. This old fashion system makes it hard to relate the requirements together, to keep the project coherent, and maintain team relationships.
Team members undertake heroic measures to consolidate, understand, monitor status, and make decisions based on this information. These manual processes often don’t scale and introduce errors.
Rational Requirements Composer enables you to use these documents together with RRC native artifacts. It can relate them to one another with links, apply attributes, include them in collections, manage review and approval status, and maintain every revision on the server. You can copy and paste Word and Excel tables into RRC in an intelligent manner and mark requirements in Word, to create individual requirements managed in the RRC database.

Internet and digital technologies are transforming the way we live and work today. New technologies are transforming how we share information, make relationships and make decisions.
It was just in the 1980's, when message centers still existed and businesses manually collected all telephone messages. We will skip the steps in between, like the answering machine, but now we have VOIP that sends our voicemail directly to our email inbox. We can be anywhere in the world, including at home by the pool and collect our telephone messages instantly, from our laptops or hand held devices.
Our global teams usually communicate through instant messaging. We Collaborate real time with each other for insights, information and answers. Your team member could be in Dublin while you live in Toronto. Instant information from 3000 miles away. You might just as well be in the office next door.
We are in a new era and it has only just begun. It will be software development teams, who will continue to transform and create this Smarter Planet through software. All business processes, hidden knowledge and services will become digital for quick access, to make faster and more effective decision making, Innovation will thrive and lives will be saved. Social software will allow us to find people with areas of expertise outside of our immediate teams, who will also provide us information to make the best decisions and blossom new innovation.

Today I'm going to talk a bit about the Jazz Architecture.
Jazz is a platform based on a client-server architecture. The Jazz server, normally running on a secured server-class machine, hosts a set of services and houses data in its repository. Remote clients communicate with the Jazz server over the network using HTTP. Remote clients come in many forms, with the quintessential one being an IDE with integrated Jazz support (like RTC), driven by a user engaged in collaborative software development. Other remote clients, such as Jazz-specific command line tools or Ant scripts, operate in headless mode. And others access the server directly using a web browser, without needing to install Jazz-specific software on their machine.
The Jazz Platform is designed and built to:
* Support seamless integration of tasks across the software lifecycle.
* Facilitate team collaboration and coordination throughout the software lifecycle.
* Provide an extensible platform.
* Help teams build software more effectively.
* Support globally distributed development teams.
* Provide solutions scalable from small teams up through large enterprises.
* Maintain audit trails and automate bookkeeping so that teams are accountable.
* Support UI integrations (IDE, web browser, etc.) that fit the needs of customers.
* Foster a broad ecosystem of tool providers, including independent software vendors (ISVs).
* Make software development more enjoyable.
IBM uses Jazz technology and products like Rational Team Concert (RTC) to build the products themselves. In fact, at any time registered Jazz.net users can see in-depth the on-going development of a product like RTC (work items, reports, graphs, etc.) in real-time.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been talking about Jazz and Rational Team concert, the importance of collaboration they provide and the architecture of Jazz. This week I will go into a little more detail of the collaboration capabilities of Rational Team Concert.
Rational Team Concert makes it easy to exchange information directly in the context of your work. If an enhancement request changes, you and other team members are notified of the change automatically. You can reference the change in chat sessions and link to artifacts. Business stakeholders can also automatically stay informed about the status of task changes that interest them.
Several views enable you to share team information. You can track team activity, present information in more detail, or configure which information is visible at any time.
Many aspects of the software development lifecycle are integrated, including iteration planning, process definition, source control, defect tracking, build management, and reporting. Each of these aspects is integrated in a single environment. You can track and manage the relationships between artifacts, promote sound development processes, and gather project information automatically and unobtrusively.
All this collaboration within the tool provides the ability to reduce meetings and status reports, reduce rework and leverage top technical and business talent by matching skills with work items through the tool.
It is all about communicating all the details and changes throughout the development cycle and that is smart software development.

Today I feel a little jazzy and want to talk a bit about Jazz. So you might ask..."What is Jazz"?
* An architecture for lifecycle integration
* A portfolio of products designed to put the team first
* A community of stakeholders
Let's explain these a little
Jazz products embody an innovative approach to integration based on open, flexible services and Internet architecture. Unlike the monolithic, closed products of the past, Jazz is an open platform designed to support any industry participant who wants to improve the software lifecycle and break down walls between tools.
The Jazz integration architecture is designed to give organizations the flexibility to assemble their ideal software delivery environment, using preferred tools and vendors. More than that, it allows them to do so with the flexibility to evolve their environment as their needs change, to move at their own pace, and not to be hindered by the traditional brittle and restricted integrations associated with traditional tools. The Jazz Integration Architecture defines a common set of Jazz Foundation Services that can be leveraged by any Jazz tool, and explains the rules of the road for accessing and utilizing Jazz services. It also incorporates specifications defined by the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration project, an independent, multi-vendor effort to define a set of protocols for sharing information across multiple tools and vendors.
The Jazz portfolio consists of a common platform and a set of tools that enable all of the members of the extended development team to collaborate more easily. This reflects our central insight that the center of software development is neither the individual nor the process, but the collaboration of the team. Our newest Jazz offerings are:
Rational Team Concert is a collaborative work environment for developers, architects and project managers with work item, source control, build management, and iteration planning support. It supports any process and includes agile planning templates for Scrum and the Eclipse Way.
Rational Quality Manager is a web-based test management environment for decision makers and quality professionals. It provides a customizable solution for test planning, workflow control, tracking and reporting capable of quantifying the impact of project decisions on business objectives.
Rational Requirements Composer is a requirements definition solution that includes visual, easy-to-use elicitation and definition capabilities. Requirements Composer enables the capture and refinement of business needs into unambiguous requirements that drive improved quality, speed, and alignment.
A community of stakeholders
Jazz is not only the traditional software development community of practitioners helping practitioners. It is also customers and community influencing the direction of products through direct, early, and continuous conversation.
Align business with Rational Requirements Composer and Rational Team Concert
Learn how the integration between IBM® Rational® Requirements Composer and Rational Team Concert highlights the capabilities that ensure project deliverables stay aligned to current business goals and requirements. Specifically, see examples of how to create a link from a requirement in a vision document artifact in Rational Requirements Composer to the work item stored in Rational Team Concert. Then see how to use filters to query across all the products on the Jazz platform. These capabilities help reduce project risk, reduce rework, and increase productivity.
