Failure to generate test documentation in due time may imply failure to meet a project deadline, which in turn may have contractual consequences in the worst case. In this blog I shall briefly present a solution that works well even for large test plans with many traces between IBM Rational Quality Manager test artifacts on the one hand and IBM Rational DOORS requirement (modules) on the other.
Lets set the scene first. Test artifacts such as test plans…
