Rational DOORS Next Generation api

Lyka Bernardo (8135) | asked Sep 02 '15, 4:34 a.m.

Is there an RDNG API which is sort of similar with the RTC plain java api which can be used to connect to RDNG, get the list of artifacts, and extract artifacts data and/or attribute fields values? Any reference for that?

I found this reference (Client extension API for the Requirements Management (RM) application) but i think it can be used for extension only.

Note that this thread is DNG specific.
  • OSLC RM V2 API - the open standard way to programmaticaly integrate with DOORS Next Generation, there is an elaborate workshop to get you started here OSLC Workshop article. These programs can be from any language that support HTTP REST calls, e.g. Java, C# etc. Hence these are more flexible to run and can read and update DNG data, as part of a web server, or standalone, but have some limitations set by the current OSLC standard, for example module support.
  • and additionally, there is the so called client extension capability, these are Javascript extension that generally added as widgets you can run from the dashboard, and can be used to view and edit DNG data. It's more tailored to DNG, so has better module support, but is limited to run in a browser/javascript environment.

There are three API's that are public for DNG:

That's from this forum question: Do we have API documentation for DOORS NG latest release

This is quite an old thread but for newbies this is a very confusing topic within the Jazz environment - is there any documentation explaining the purpose of 3 different APIs and the use-cases for each of them?
