New Whitepaper: Managing requirements across Analysis and Design phases using System Architect & DOORS
A new whitepaper has just been published:
Managing requirements across Analysis and Design phases using System Architect & DOORS
This document describes why requirements need to be tracked and also explains how tracking can be setup and managed.
The IBM Rational System Architect DOORS integration helps users create abstract views in System Architect based on the user requirements in IBM Rational DOORS. Having this integration will enable users to synchronize the model with the ever changing requirements. This document can be used as a reference for users who would like to map their requirements captured in DOORS to a modeling tool Rational System Architect. Also, there would be an information flow between DOORS to System Architect and vice-versa.
Using the document provided, users can map the requirements in
DOORS to the System Architect project encyclopedia and vice versa. As a
summary, this document can prove effective as a start point for new
users who are in the process of exploring this integration and its
Many thanks to authors Rajesh Avanthi and Praveen Sreenivasan!

New whitepaper published: IBM Rational Rhapsody and Visual Studio 2008 - Workflow Integration
Abstract: An efficient integration between a UML tool and an IDE is an essential aspect of efficient application development. This white paper discusses one such integration between two such widely used tools in their respective domains; IBM Rational Rhapsody and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.
Content: This white paper intends to provide you a with a comprehensive guide on how to successfully use the integration between IBM Rational Rhapsody and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. While the white paper illustrates and discusses certain features of both Rational Rhapsody and Visual Studio 2008, it does not intend to go into the specifics of Rhapsody or Visual Studio 2008. By the end, you will be able to setup and use the integration and its various features that will enable you to be more efficient in the way code and model is handled together.

From Bill Penny, Knowledge Manager:
It has been a busy release time in the AM space, so I wanted to make you aware of three new RSARTE (Rational Software Architect RealTime Edition) whitepapers that I have collaborated on with development and just published.
These documents will be referenced both from the RSARTE support web page as well as from within the RSARTE InfoCenter.

How and Why to create Custom Ant Tasks - Extend IBM Rational Application Developer functionality by invoking Eclipse APIs from Ant tasks
This article describes how to create custom Ant tasks within IBM Rational® Application Developer, which is built on the Eclipse platform. It also explains why you might want or need to do so. The example in this article provides a useful function not currently available in the integrated development environment (IDE): a custom Ant task that you can use to delete all generated files marked as derived.
Configuring environments that implement an Administrative VOB structurethat incorporates the use of multiple UCM PVOBs (nested PVOBs).
In addition to the added scalability and functionality offered by usinga nested UCM project VOB structure, there is also a level of complexitywith this configuration that requires special attention. This paperoutlines some best practices to follow when linking UCM project VOBsthat should help you avoid many of the problems that could beencountered when linking project VOBs.
This document isdesigned to be read by ClearCase UCM administrators who are responsiblefor their organizations UCM configuration.
