IBM Rational Events – Open Labs

Update 2041.08.04 10PM: despite its name the site is external to IBM so please take this into account when using the site.

A source of education on IBM Rational technologies are the open labs offered by IBM Rational DoD Events.

Rational Publishing Engine is among the technologies covered and the Free IBM Rational Software Open Labs – Sept 8, 9 & 10 2014 Cambridge, MA will include a lab entitled “Publish Your Rational DOORS Requirements with Rational Publishing Engine”

For a full list of the upcoming labs and the tools and technologies that they cover you should consult the List of Events.

 

Extracting DOORS information via the OSLC API

UPDATE 2014.09.11: the schema entry point is main.xsd not oscl_rm.xsd. Thanks to Geoff and Paul for pointing this out.

The best way to extract information with RPE from DOORS is via the native DOORS driver in RPE. There is however 1 scenario where going through the DOORS native driver is very difficult to design and inefficient at runtime. The scenario is producing a document from RQM artifacts which have DOORS linked data.

This post contains the video my colleague Kumar has prepared on how to setup RPE to work with DWA  as well as a brief textual description of the process.


NOTE
: the information exposed by DOORS through the OSLC APIs (DWA) is limited compared to the one available through the DOORS native driver. If you use DOORS as a starting point in your report you should always use the native DOORS driver as its the best and most efficient way to get DOORS data into RPE.
