You may need to find dependency information about a component that […]

Taffy and DevOps – with Collaborative Lifecycle Management 5.0.1

Reviewing code changes with Rational Team Concert

In the good old days, things were easy. You worked on a bug, modified a few lines of code and were done. No one was looking over your shoulder to check if your code was right. The best code comes late at night when you’re alone anyway. No tests to run and no continuous build […]
