While working the front lines in support over the past 16 years of my career, a small handful of issues always seem to crop up as the most requested items when clients call in. One of those items was consistently in depth question on how to setup SSL for any of the products I was supporting. So, of course I'm going to highlight an SSL article when it comes across my plate, as I know how important these types of setups are to you, or clients, with a focus on ensuring your environment's security.
Luckily, John Chewter, Chief Architect for Green Hat Technologies in IBM has written a wonderfully detailed article on developerWorks outlining this process for IBM Rational Integration Tester:
Using SSL within Rational Integration Tester- Overview of key material, the SSL handshake, and its use in Rational Integration Tester transports. Learn how to configure SSL and use the key material in IBM® Rational® Integration Tester to test and virtualize secure services.
Summary: This article explains the various key material types and how they are used within Rational Integration Tester so that it can connect to and test applications secured using SSL. In Part Two we explore how to use the HTTP(S) proxy server to record and re-route secure traffic by using existing key material, or by using the certificate and key that is included in the HTTP proxy server, within the Rational Integration Tester Platform Pack.

We're always working to bring you deeper value to the products you use. From our support perspective, this doesn't just mean troubleshooting tips or solutions to errors. It also means larger implementation content and best practices! Helping you avoid issues by highlighting best practices before trouble is seen is just another of those ways we help make sure you are as successful with these products as you need to be! That's exactly why we bring you this periodic series of roll-ups from our developerWorks Rational community and libraries... that in mind, here's the past few weeks' articles that went live on developerWorks Rational:
What's new in Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters
What's new in Rational Software Architect and Design Manager
Top 10 modeling hints: #4 Design patterns reuse proven solutions
IBM Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters Standard Edition extends the IBM Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) with integrations to select third-party tools. These adapters also provide integrations for Rational ClearQuest. The Rational Lifecycle Integration Adapters Standard Edition enables you to continue using your existing lifecycle tools and benefit from the many capabilities found in the Rational solution for CLM products.
Monica Luke lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area. With more than 20 years experience in software engineering, she joined IBM Rational software 10 years ago in the test organization. During her 17 years as a test automation engineer and architect, she has repeatedly tackled the tough problems of building test automation solutions through frameworks that last and build triggered test solutions for complete lights-out testing. Testing and test automation remain a passion, and that has led Monica to move into the product management organization, where she has the opportunity to tackle these tough problems in the testing tools. Monica currently spends a lot of her time thinking about the challenges of Continuous Testing. Using an outside-in scenario design approach, Monica is happily influencing the next wave of Rational testing tools.

We're knee deep into fall now, and well into November already! How did that happen? I'm not sure of the time-space continuum shift that has truncated this year, but what I am sure of is that our awesome developerWorks authors have been steadily publishing their great articles regardless of how short or long the year has seemed... Here are the latest articles from the past few weeks which have gone live on Rational developerWorks:

Darrel Rader, a technical skills and development leader in IBM Rational has built this amazingly short (only 6 slides!) but robust presentation on slideshare.net to help explain what learning circles are:
Now that you know what a learning circle is, did you know we've got five of them currently rolled out (with more to come)? Check out the great learning circles below, choose one, and dive in! These learning circles focus on aspects of the product and application lifecycle:
Because you may not have time to browse all the resources and mingle with other learners in one sitting, learning circles help you create your own personal roadmaps, your pathways through the resources.
You can check off items as you complete them, break away whenever you need to, and easily return anytime. No guesswork; no wasted time trying to recreate where you were.
You can keep your progress confidential, of course. But you also have the option of easily sharing your progress with a mentor, your manager, or your team so you can all progress together.
Don't forget to keep and eye on our developerWorks Learning Circles page to see when new circles are added!

In this six part demo series on developerWorks, we show you the ins and outs of IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering. All six of the articles below will take you to pages on developerWorks from which you can either click to view the demo, or download the video and transcripts for review later or in secure environments.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 1: Collaboration, Planning and Change Management- In this first demonstration in the lifecycle walkthrough we will show you how to use work item management, project dashboards and lifecycle traceability to deliver greater team collaboration, transparency and improved project over sight.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 2: Requirements Management- In this demonstration, we will update and test a popular software library downloaded from the internet.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 3: Quality Management- In this demonstration in the lifecycle walk-through we will show you how to use requirements and model driven quality management to validate system behaviour and verify compliance as early as possible in the lifecycle.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 4: Architecture Management- In this demonstration in the life cycle walk through we will show you the use of standards based modeling techniques to capture, analyze and design complex systems.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 5: Embedded Software Development- In this demonstration, we will update and test a popular software library downloaded from the internet.
IBM Rational Solution for Systems and Software Engineering Demo Part 6: Visualise, Analyse and Organise Lifecycle Data (RELM)- We will start inside Rational Team Concert as Susan, our lead systems engineer, and we're working inside the project for the Automated Meter Reader System.
