Question

Information regarding the new web types in IBM Rational Change 5.2

Answer

The new or upgraded web types are:

  • CCM_VISUAL_STATUS - Visual Status
    Provide context for the current change request, a visual indication marks the current state within the complete change process. If a CR in a non-primary path state is displayed, the visual status simply shows the one state without any other transitions / states.
  • CCM_PAGE_NAVIGATE - Page Navigation
    Quick navigation within the Change Request to optionally color-coded sections of the page. It expect the relevant CCM_START_SEC and CCM_END_SEC attributes to be set.
  • CCM_PROGRESS_BAR - Progress Bar Indicator
    A simple progress bar indicator for the total effort to the actual effort taken to complete the Change Request.
  • CCM_SUBSCRIPTION
    A CR subscription feature allows users to subscribe to a CR. Once subscribed, a user will receive email notifications when the CR is updated by another user. A new attribute web type, CCM_SUBSCRIPTION, has been introduced for this purpose.
  • CCM_ANNOTATED_TEXT
    The web type CCM_ANNOTATED_TEXT provides a very simplistic discussion mechanism.
  • CCM_EXTENDED_TEXT
    Text editor with formatting options.

For examples on how to use those web types, please refer to the documentation and the examples lifecycles provided with Change, dev_process and ECP_process.
