Improved reuse in Collaborative Lifecycle Management 6.0.3

IBM introduced versions and configuration management for requirement and testing artifacts in Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM) 6.0 – but up to now, the unit of configuration was the project area. In 6.0.3 (in Release Candidate 3 as I write this), you can create smaller components and configuration. This article shows how this new capability gives […]

Improving usability when merging changes involving gaps

One of the advantages of using the SCM capabilities of Rational Team Concert (RTC) is the traceability of change sets across multiple streams and workspaces. When a developer completes a new feature or fixes a bug, they deliver one or more change sets to their team stream. These change sets can then be accepted into […]
