The Process Practice

Process engineering with the Eclipse Process Framework and Rational Method Composer

Entries Comments


My name is Peter Haumer. I am a software architect working for IBM Rational on the Rational Method Composer as well as the Eclipse Process Framework as a committer. I also work in the OMG on finalizing the SPEM 2.0 specification. (See this page for a short bio.)

This is my personal blog in which I want to provide background knowledge, FAQs, tips & tricks, as well my thoughts on everything related to development processes. I will especially focus on the areas that I am personally involved in such as RMC, EPF, and SPEM2, but might also venture into related areas such as discussing concrete process frameworks that I am interested in (e.g RUP, OpenUP, Scrum, XP).

I am new to RMC and using the trial version of the tool I notice the use of content variability does not replace all of the elements that I expected it would,any suggestions?

Hi Peter, I was wondering if any work is being done towards providing Scott Ambler’s work on EUP as a plug-in for RMC 7.2. That would be of great help when extending RUP for use in the ITL space – if not, can you make another suggestion? thx

Hello Rob. Let’s discuss this in the RMC online forum here:
Could you describe the concrete example that you were trying to model?

Hello Julio.
A lot of the EUP disciplines are now covered by RUP plugins and other RMC content. For example, the ITL space is covered by ITUP (ships with RMC 7.2; see here for details and here Other plugins for portfolio management, COTS, maintenance, etc. you find here:

Hello Peter.
I have watched your recorded presentations at about EPF Composer and I was wondering where I could find the presentations about “Process Authoring” and “Special Features” that you mentioned in the “General Overview”?
Thanks in advance.

Hello Stella. Yes, sorry, did not get around to do these, yet. However, check out some of the links in the resource tab of this blog to find some alternative. For example, the new three part video for RMC also covers process.
