Generate documents from fine-grained components

Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) 1.3 and above was already capable of configuration-aware document generation. With Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) 6.0.3, we can use configurations of separate components in the project area to achieve re-usability. Rational DOORS Next Generation (RDNG) and Rational Quality Manager (RQM) offer the reusable solution. With RPE 1.3 (yes, 1.3) and above, we can generate documents by selecting the configuration of a component through RPE Launcher (desktop application) and also from RPE Document Builder (Web application) while configuring the template data source.

OSLC API and POX Profile simplifies CLM traceability

Further to OSLC + POXProfile post, RPE 2.1 with CLM 6.0.2 simplifies the data source configuration; especially while configuring dynamic data source for traceability reports.

Use OSLC / Permanent link for configuring the data source URL without having to modify the URL manually or through JavaScript. This simplifies the data source configuration to a great extent as the Permanent / OSLC links are available to the user from the product UI.

Watch video, created by Dragos, on requirement (DNG) to use case design (DM) traceability document generation using Permanent / OSLC links from DNG and DM without having to go through building Rest URL. Continue reading “OSLC API and POX Profile simplifies CLM traceability”

Studio Integrated with 2.1 Web application

RPE Studio 2.1 could now access assets from RPE 2.1 Document Builder (Web Services). The templates, snippets and stylesheets from 2.1 web services are available in Studio 2.1. The “Load From Library” in Open Template dialog lists templates and snippets, which could be view, modified and saved back to the web app.

The remote services preference setting is similar to how remote services 1.x were configured. However, the service URL should be pointed to RPE 2.1 web service URL. Find complete documentation here. Continue reading “Studio Integrated with 2.1 Web application”
