RMC-RTC integration incubator available for 7.5

7 January, 2009 (15:35) | Rational Method Composer | By: Peter

The experimental incubator that allows you to generate process templates for Rational Team Concerts that I had announced here for RMC 7.2 and RTC 1.0 has now been updated to support Team Concert version 1.0.1 and Method Composer 7.5ifix1. Go here on to download the updated bits. I also updated the tutorial here on IBM’s DeveloperWorks that describes the integration. One important enhancement to this new version of the integration is the ability to provide as many default templates as you want now (see Advanced Usage sections in the tutorial for how to create and manage these).

Method Authoring Method released

The “Method Authoring Method” is a collection of practices, method content, and processes created with Rational Method Composer that describe how to develop all of these things with RMC. In other words and as a the name says it already: it provides methods for doing methods. This collection of practices covers topic areas that range from ways of eliciting and sketching methods, over how to use RMC to model processes, to a reference process model architecture for managing interchangeable sets of practices and process on a very large scale.

We now offer different packages and pre-published configurations of this content for different audiences:

  1. First of all there is an open source version of this content on the Eclipse Process Framework homepage that focuses on the scope of the open source practices of the Eclipse Process Framework.  Download it here and preview it here on EPF Wiki.
  2. Then there are two extended versions of this content focusing on the additional capabilities of Rational Method Composer and the way IBM’s commercial practices content is organized. They require an IBM Rational Method Composer license and can be downloaded from IBM’s DeveloperWorks here.
