Extending EWM by using OSLC services
Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is a community that is standardizing the way that lifecycle tools work together. IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) supports the OSLC data sharing specification as a provider for the Change Management domain and as a consumer of other domains.
The sharing of OSLC data between domains is based on a common set of resources, formats, and REST architectural services.
The data sharing supports these transactions:
- Linking that is based on HTTP protocol
- Identification of resources by URIs
- Information retrieval that uses industry standard media types
EWM supports OSLC data sharing with the domains and specifications that are listed in the following table.
|OSLC domain||EWM consumes||EWM provides|
|Change Management (CM)||V1, V2||V1, V2|
|Quality Management (QM)||V1, V2||None|
|Requirements Management (RM)||V1, V2||None|
