JavaScript improvements with Rational Publishing Engine 2.1.1

JavaScript is one of the key components while building a Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) template. The plain JavaScript dialog editor has been improved with:

  • Content Assist: Ctrl + space lists available variables, helps with syntax of various JavaScript functions, parameters to be passed to a function. Tip: If the variable is a data attribute from a query, store it in a JavaScript variable to take advantage of content assist.
  • Syntax coloring: For any programming language, syntax coloring is a must.
  • Line marking: The line containing the cursor has a line marking.

  • Publish Your Rational DOORS Requirements with RPE

Document Comparison between configurations or versions or views

With RPE you could generate the documents with the structure and formatting you need. However, if you want to compare contents of two different views from DOORS NG or test plan or test cases across different configuration or version, how would you?

RPE does not have an inbuilt solution for comparing documents. With the help of Microsoft Macro VB script, one could compare two documents to get representation of a third document that contains the differences between the two compared documents, and it is marked by using Track ChangesContinue reading “Document Comparison between configurations or versions or views”

Configuration Aware Document Generation

RPE 1.3 and above is capable of generating configuration-aware document from CLM environment with Configuration enabled.

My colleagues Sunil and Dragos have put a video that explains document generation from RPE desktop client and RPE Web document builder.

Find documentation related to configuration-aware below.

Understanding type of the model from DM

While building a cross product template from DNG to Design manager, the derived by attribute links to model diagram from Design Manager. How do you know whether it is a use case diagram or sequence diagram or something else?

If you make a GET request to DM model OSLC  / permanent URL (https://server:9443/dm/models/_Eea40KY8EeWtTLergOJe7g~OLDID__6018453__1) with Accept header as application/rdf+xml, you get OSLC representation of the resource. Looking at RDF/Description/type@resource attribute mentions whether the model is a use case or sequence diagram or etc. Continue reading “Understanding type of the model from DM”

Printing DOORS Object Heading without line break

While extracting Object heading from DOORS using RPE, RPE will try to retain DOORS heading formatting and styles and the heading is put in a new line. For example, add Object ID or Heading Number before Object Heading in a RPE template as below:

rpetemplate

Though you expect the RPE document to show Heading Number and Object Heading in same line, they will be shown in separate lines. Continue reading “Printing DOORS Object Heading without line break”
