Extending Rational DOORS Next Generation by using OSLC services

Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) is a community that is standardizing the way that lifecycle tools work together. IBM® Rational® DOORS® Next Generation supports the OSLC data sharing specification as a provider for the Requirements Management (RM) domain and as a consumer of other domains in the Rational solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management (CLM). Data sharing is also supported by other RM tools that support OSLC integration, such as IBM Rational DOORS.

The sharing of OSLC data between domains is based on a common set of resources, formats, and REST architectural services.

The data sharing supports these transactions:
  • Linking that is based on HTTP protocol
  • Identification of resources by URIs
  • Information retrieval that uses industry standard media types

Rational DOORS Next Generation supports OSLC data sharing with the domains and specifications that are listed in the following table.

Table 1. OSLC domains and specifications that Rational DOORS Next Generation supports
OSLC domain RM consumes RM provides
Change Management (CM) V1, V2 None
Quality Management (QM) V1, V2 None
Requirements Management (RM) V1, V2 V1, V2
Design Management (DM) based on OSLC Architecture Management (AM)* V2 V2
Configuration Management None See Oasis Working Draft

*The Design Management domain is based on the OSLC Architecture Management (AM) V2 specification. The IBM implementation of Design Management includes more services that are outside of the OSLC AM specification. Those services are documented on the Jazz.net Design Management wiki.
