I am looking for info on creating my own widgets for the RTC/RRC dashboards.  The options I am looking at are iWidget and opensocial widgets.  Are there any references that describe how to create widgets in these formats, and any guidelines on what kinds of things to to, and what to avoid.

many thanks

anthony

Hi Anthony,

Have you seen the wiki page on Extending the Requirements Management Application?  It has some code examples that can get you started on creating custom widgets to extend product functionality.  I'm not aware of anything similar available for RTC however.  Hope it helps,

This is useful for RRC, I will see if I can find similar content for RTC.

Hi Anthony,

I would certainly check out these two videos:

(note DOORS DNG and RRC v4 are the same)

 Hi Anthony,

I created some widget for DNG and RTC. For this I used Open Social Widget, because it is based on Webstandards like HTML, CSS and Javascript. Especially with Javascript you will have a lot of possibilities (JMX, SPARQL, D3 etc.)

Have a look at my Blog http://rtcpractise.wordpress.com

Let me know if this helps...

Hi ,

Hi Aastha,

what exactly do you want to know? For RTC Open Social Widget you can use the information from DNG, except there is no Javascript RTC API like the RM API. But we have OSLC and some REST API you can use.

Thx

Stefan

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for your reply!! I am looking for creating a custom widget which should have a query editor ,once the user runs a query I need to call a rest API which will perform some operations on the query result.

Thanks & Regards,
Aastha
