Rational Publishing Engine architecture – Document Builder and Desktop

Below is the architecture for Rational Publishing Engine (RPE) Document Builder and  RPE Desktop client, which  provide document generation capabilities for the Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) solution and external tools like HP ALM, JIRA, etc. Additionally, Rational Reporting for Document Generation (RRDG) is embedded within CLM for generating documents from the application you’re working on, like DOORS Next Generation or Rational Quality Manager. Jazz Reporting Service (JRS) also has RRDG embedded, from which RPE documents can be generated for the reports created in JRS.
