EIN News /PRAvenueNW/ — The company in general is providing consulting and training services in software development area focused on using IBM Rational methodology and tools. During the practice it was developed a number of solutions based on IBM Rational tools and several add-on modules for specific Rational tools, which are already very popular among Rational tools consumers in Russia and CIS countries.
CM-Consult Ltd and the Rational-Tools.com project are to present you these very useful solutions:
UML2ClearQuest – This tool is for ease the process of the transformation of UML logical diagrams (State Chart and Activity Chart) which are describing change request’s lifecycle into their physical view as the scheme of ClearQuest Designer. Also it’s possible to make reverse transformation of CQ scheme into UML logical diagrams (State Chart and Activity Chart) with automatically validation checking. The tool supports IBM Rational Software Architect, MS Visio and StarUML.
CQlite – safe client for ClearQuest. This tool provides the owner of the project to grant the limited access to project data in CQ base for the external teams involved in project. It also allows to export bug-reports in XML to distribute it to external teams which can edit it in MS Excel and send it back for automatic synchronization with CQ base. Using this tool provides assurance in confidentiality of the project data which keeps authorized access only. The tool supports IBM Rational Software Architect and MS Visio.
PDA testing – the component for IBM Rational Robot and RFT to automate Pocket PC applications functional testing. It makes possible to playback tests on the PDA directly in real time mode. Testing can be run on several PDAs simultaneously via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or USB.
ClearQuest ProjectTracker – state-of-art MS Project (or Project Server) and ClearQuest integration module which allows bidirectional collaboration keeping the full hierarchy, total resources information and all dependencies as well. During planning in MS Project the module allows to import all resources available from the CQ base. It’s irreplaceable tool for excellent project management.
HP Service Desk and ClearQuest integration solution (with appropriate services). This solution helps to automate the process of transferring the SW development requests or SW change requests from HP OpenView into ClearQuest. It also supports receiving receipts by OpenView on the fulfilling request in ClearQuest.
And several add-ons (plugins for ClearQuest) which are for ease usual procedures in ALM cycle:
State chart visualization module of the ClearQuest requests. This add-on can be embedded to any CQ scheme to allow in real time mode for every type of requests (change request, bug report, task or enhancement request) receiving an UML diagram which describes the request. In such diagram it is specially highlighted current state of request and its transition mainstream.
ClearQuest change request hierarchy visualization module – this add-on can help to visualize either a hierarchy inside of one type requests (for instance task and subtask) or between requests of different types (BaseCMActivity, bug report, task and subtask). The description structure of the hierarchical tree can be easily adjusted. It is also supported a recursive address (all dependent requests are automatically scanned through the Reference Lists).
Role-based change request access rights regulation module – this add-on is a realization of the role approach to the change requests processing. It can work with any CQ scheme and allows to define resource roles for every project and to allocate rights more agile especially in case of leading several projects within one user database of ClearQuest.
Rational-tools.com is a worldwide project started in 2008 to promote to the world market the unique solutions for software development based on IBM Rational tools andrepeatedly certified by the one of the leading IBM Rational business partners in Russia
CM-Consult was founded in 2004. It’s primary business activities have been project management consulting, supporting and implementing IBM Rational methodology and supporting IBM Rational and Microsoft software.
