Behind the Demo: Part 1 – Keep C(a)LM and Link On

Recently, Island Training was challenged to create a live demonstration of an end-to-end DevOps process for the IBM InterConnect 2015 conference where most attendees would be unfamiliar with IBM Rational tools. Showcasing DOORS Next Generation (DNG), Rational Team Concert (RTC), Rational Quality Manager (RQM) and UrbanCode Deploy (uDeploy), the demo had to be FAST—no longer than 10 minutes. And, being Island Training, the demo needed to be interactive, and, it needed an island theme.

This story (in several parts) describes the evolution of that demo and an overview of the features that allowed us to perform the amazing 10-minute sprints. This article (Part 1) shows you how we leverage links between DNG and RTC to quickly create work items. Part 2 will show how we automatically create our deliverable using the RTC REST API. Part 3 features uDeploy and how easy it is to set up and integrate a deployment process.

With the release of DOORS Next Generation 5.0, IBM introduced a long-awaited feature for those evaluating a move from “Traditional DOORS” (DOORS 9.x): the ability to extend functionality through scripting.

DXL (DOORS eXtension Language) has grown to be a popular capability for extending IBM Rational DOORS to suit the needs for DOORS users. With it, users can customize formatting, perform administrative functions, and extract data from requirements attributes easily and effectively.

While this new functionality in DOORS Next Generation at present doesn’t have the immense library of scripts that have been written in DXL, it does show promise in providing another means of providing customization on the Jazz platform to suit an enterprise’s needs. Let’s take a look at what’s needed to set up this functionality.
