The heritage Boston Metro Rational User Group is cominginto 2009 as its own entity, separate from the Boston Metro RationalClearCase User Group. To avoid any confusion, the user group will nowby named – “New England Rational User Group”.w00t! Two Boston area Rational User Groups! :-)
I am writing toyou today because you are listed as a current member of the legacy usergroup. I heartily invite you to continue your participation with us aswe begin to roll out some exciting new initiatives throughout thecoming year. Please let me know if you wish to embark on this newjourney with the “New England Rational User Group”. [...] if youwould like to send me your thoughts on any ! topic, related to this newendeavor, I would love to hear them. You can email me at:d
We are taking the month of March to developa series of presentations and activities that will be deliveredvirtually as well as in person. We also plan on developing polls tohelp us gauge where everybody’s interests lie.
I hope that youwill carry your continued participation into the new organization. Ourgoal is to enable you through community and IBM channels, helping yourealize the potential of your IBM/
NOTE: To reiterate - the Boston Metro ClearCase User Group will still be functioning. It will just be a separate entity.

Guidance for deploying Rational Team Concert into an existing Rational ClearCase environment
IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) provides various types of integration capabilities: the synchronizer, the importer, and the bridge. The integration is not a one-size-fits-all and you may need help with deciding which integration capability best suits your current deployment or your future deployment plan. The information below provides a brief overview about the integration capabilities. Additional "Getting Started" information and "Quick Tour" videos are available in the Rational Team Concert and Rational ClearCase integration cookbook topic in the deployment wiki on Jazz.net.
Rational ClearCase Bridge
The Rational ClearCase Bridge provides a traceability link from Rational ClearCase artifacts to work items in Rational Team Concert. This is primarily for a customer who wants to continue to use Rational ClearCase as a source control system, but also wants to take advantage of Rational Team Concert features such as agile planning, dashboards, etc. You do not have to change your current usage of Rational ClearCase, but you can enhance your Rational ClearCase deployment by using Rational Team Concert in a complementary fashion.
Developers can associate UCM activities or base Rational ClearCase versions to Rational Team Concert's work items. You can then navigate from one to the other in the developer IDE. Because a Rational Team Concert work item is used as the "glue" for all development lifecycle artifacts, it provides end-to-end traceability throughout the development life-cycle, from project planning to source code changes.
Rational ClearCase Version Importer
The Rational ClearCase Version Importer (new in Rational Team Concert 4.0.5) is a one-way data replication tool from Rational ClearCase to Rational Team Concert source control. You can migrate all the versions in any branches in Rational ClearCase in a single operation, and the version branching is also replicated in Rational Team Concert source control. The importer also preserves the checked-in user information.
It can also import Rational ClearCase view configurations as Rational Team Concert baselines since the version 4.0.6.
You can use the version importer for both Base ClearCase and UCM ClearCase, but it does not import UCM metadata.
Rational ClearCase Synchronizer and Baseline Importer
The Rational ClearCase Synchronizer is a two-way data replication between Rational ClearCase and Rational Team Concert source control. You can choose a UCM stream or a Rational ClearCase branch to set up synchronization with a stream of Rational Team Concert source control. It leverages the Jazz Team Build, and you can run the synchronization on a scheduled basis or by request. This provides flexibility to enterprise customers by allowing a subset of teams to choose SCM tools to work with, while letting you manage all of the latest source code through a single SCM repository.
The Rational ClearCase Baseline Importer is a one-way data replication from Rational ClearCase to Rational Team Concert source control. Like the synchronizer, you can choose a UCM stream where all baselines or only selected baselines are imported, or you can choose to import label types for base Rational ClearCase. It also leverages the Jazz Team Build, so you can run the import of new baselines/label types on a scheduled basis or by request.
Version Importer or Baseline Importer?
There are two migration tools available - the Version Importer and the Baseline Importer. You can choose either of the technology that fits to your requirements to migrate the data from Rational ClearCase to Rational Team Concert source control.
