Installing DXL scripts for quicker loading of requirements from DOORS

If you plan to use Rhapsody® Model Manager in conjunction with IBM® Engineering Requirements Management DOORS®, you must install the provided DXL scripts on the DOORS client that is used as an interop by the DOORS Web Access server. These scripts reduce the time that is required to load collections of remote requirements.


  1. In an installation of IBM Engineering Systems Design Rhapsody, locate the file ..\[Rhapsody installation directory]\Share\Profiles\RhapsodyModelManager\DXLScripts\RhapsodyDWAIntegrationServices.dxl, and copy the file to \[DOORS client installation directory]>\lib\dxl\addins\services\ (create any folders in this path that do not yet exist).
  2. Run the DOORS client.
  3. Copy the contents of the file ..\[Rhapsody installation directory]\Share\Profiles\RhapsodyModelManager\DXLScripts\registerServices.dxl to the DOORS client DXL editor.
  4. Run the registerServices script in the DOORS client DXL editor.
