The pillars of knowing your software is right
In model-driven development and formal specification of software systems, the quality feedback mechanism is reinforced by the more extensive validation of early lifecycle representations of the system. It is worth replacing a well-understood and trusted validation and verification model based on hand-crafted requirements, code, simulation, and test with a formal requirements engineering approach.

Memory management in Rational DOORS
This article shows how to use DXL APIs to effectively manage memory when you use DXL scripts in DOORS. With these APIs, you can monitor the memory used by DOORS. You can take action when the memory used by DOORS reaches the maximum threshold level. The APIs help to avoid loss of data due to an abrupt stop of the application.

Product Design for Variants
Recognizing the need to design for product variants and the best methods to manage variants is critical to product development success over time. Variant management is how you organize the list of feature variants and put them into products. With new product development projects, planning for future variants is not typically done at the beginning. In this article. Joanne Scouler and Marty Bakal explain how to get started with variants. They illustrate their points with examples from Eaton Corporation's experience in developing variants of transmissions for heavy-duty hybrid vehicles. The authors also describe how various Rational software products can help.

Back up Rational software user data for quick disaster recovery
Currently, there is no supported way to plan for disaster recovery for IBM Rational software that uses Rational Directory Server. Therefore, administrators of Rational DOORS, Rational Change, Rational Synergy, and other Rational products that rely on the directory server always fear losing user data, such as rights, roles, preference settings, and so forth. Pranab Agarwal explains how to use peer-to-peer replication to back up that user data. This method also ensures that turnaround time to recover from a failure is very short, which helps in disaster recovery planning.

An overview of the TOC on AIX
On an IBM AIX system, the addresses of global symbols in C, C++, and Fortran programs are stored in a fixed-size data structure called the table of contents (TOC). TOC overflow occurs if the application contains more global symbols than can fit in the TOC. This article explains how the TOC works on AIX and the different mechanisms that can be used in the presence of TOC overflow. It discusses the performance impact of each mechanism and provides guidance for application developers on the best ways to use these mechanisms, based on the characteristics of their applications.

Improve the value of your CLM reports by using metrics
The Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) is a set of seamlessly integrated applications that work together as one platform for managing the complete lifecycle of your development projects. The application and lifecycle data that your teams create collaboratively for their projects is provided to you for reporting by CLM in a data warehouse. Although CLM includes more than 200 sample reports, with the addition of either the Rational Reporting for Development Intelligence (RRDI) component or IBM Rational Insight, you get design tools for customizing CLM samples and creating your own reports. With these tools, you have access to the data in the warehouse, which is grouped into two main categories: operational data (ODS) and metrics. This article gives you an in-depth look at the metrics available and how to use them.

Configure DOORS and Rational Team Concert for globally distributed workers
Rational DOORS is a widely recognized requirements management and traceability application for complex systems and software development. It can be integrated with Rational Team Concert to provide a comprehensive requirements management and collaborative change management working environment to use throughout the product development lifecycle. But imagine that the requirements analyst uses DOORS to establish the requirements in Australia, the business analysts enter stakeholder requests through DOORS Web Access in Japan to establish critical attributes values, the systems engineers develop requirements and create traceability from the UK, and the development and QA teams are in India. Plus, you might not have your servers installed in one place. This article explains how to set up servers and computers globally and provides examples. Readers can follow the sequential configurations to configure their own working environments. Prerequisites: Instructions in this article are based on the assumption that readers have an intermediate knowledge of both Rational Team Concert and Rational DOORS.

A compiler option that helps debug optimized code
Debugging optimized code has always been a challenging task, because it could make the program state not available to debuggers. Optimization can change the sequence of operations, add or remove code, change variable data locations, and perform other transformations that make it difficult to associate the generated code with the original source statements. In this article, Daniel Chen and Tommy Hoffner introduce a compiler option that helps debug optimized code.
