Test documentation frequently have a need to report on test artifacts as well as the associated requirements. If test execution fails, one would like to know which requirements are impacted. Generating such documentation using the IBM Rational Publishing Engine in conjunction with IBM Rational Quality Manager and IBM Rational DOORS in a straightforward way leads to a solution that does not scale, nor does it guarantee completion of the report. 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…
