Those of you interested in learning more about extending, integrating and adopting Systems and Software Engineering solution should check out my colleague’s blog. Stefan is in IBM Services and writes about his experiences here. http://rtcpractise.wordpress.com
Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager has just EGA’d v4.0.6!
You can learn more on the following Web Sites:
1. Shutdown DWA, Derby, Interops and Broker (user desktop shortcut)
2. You must stop the DOOR DB server, kill it from the task manager
3. Backup folder C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Rational\DOORS\9.5\certdb
4. Update and replace the 4 server_* and 4 client_* files into the C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Rational\DOORS\9.5\certdb folder the following files:
5. From Services start the DOORS DB server again.
6. Start Broker, Derby, Interops and DWA (use desktop shortcut)
If you don’t have updated keys above you can also solve this issue by setting the secure key (on regedit) to “off” instead on “on”.
Rational SPARQL Gateway
SPARQL is a querying language for RDF databases analogous to SQL for relational databases. Its power lies in being able to query across RDF artifacts and their relationships that span multiple repositories. RELM supports SPARQL v1.1. Many of the SSE customers are interested in reporting on or exporting cross domain artifact reports in PDF, Excel or CSV format. One of RELM’s core capabilities is to provide near real-time reporting across tools and repositories. The SPARQL Gateway component included with RELM allows you to create reportable XML data sources the from the RDF results returned by the RELM SPARQL queries. Additionally RELM allows you to deploy Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) templates that format these XML data sources into reports that can be easily printed or exported to CSV, Excel or PDF formats.
Tip: For historical or trending reports consider Rational Insight. Also consider existing reporting technologies within each SSE product
Tip: When configuring SPARQL_Gateway for the RELM (https://hostname.com:9443/relm) you get the following error when trying to generate a RELM Report
500 (null):CRCPD1006E The LQE endpoint is not defined in SPARQL Gateway
Problem is probably caused by not having Endpoint URL set. Go into LQE and set the end point URL. It should look like https://yourhostname.com:9443/lqe/sparql
I am happy to share the availability of the Tracked Resource Set Software Development Kit that supports Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager (RELM) V4.0.3. which support TRS v1 draft specification plus errata. There is a technical article on Jazz.net that shows how to use the reference implementation TRS provider for Bugzilla. The article is titled
Setup Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager, Lifecycle Query Engine,
Jazz Team Server and Tracked Resource Set Provider for Bugzilla
Anyone who uses TRS SDK can get support from the Eclipse Lyo Community. IBM Customers and partners who have purchased RELM and use the TRS SDK can also use the Jazz.net forums to get assistance.
Both the TRS SDK workshop and the Jazz.net article don’t include references to or implementations for Access Control Protocal which describes how to control access to the data and resources published to RELM/LQE. The ACP specification is still in draft and requires additional review.
