Release notes
This document contains information about new features and enhancements for Rational® Test RealTime and links to useful information about the products.
This document includes information about hardware and software requirements for IBM® Rational® Test RealTime.
IBM® Rational® Test RealTime is a complete test and runtime analysis tool set for systems development created in any cross-development environment. Rational Test RealTime provides tools for automated component testing, code coverage, memory leak detection, performance profiling, and UML sequence diagram tracing.
Source code instrumentation overview
Source code insertion (SCI) technology uses instrumentation techniques that automatically add specific code to the source files under analysis. After compilation, execution of the code produces dump data for runtime analysis or component testing.
Target deployment port overview
Target deployment port (TDP) technology is a versatile, low-overhead technology enabling target-independent tests and run-time analysis despite limitless target support.
This section provides the instructions for installing the product as well as installation verification. To install your product, follow the procedures and information in these topics. Installing the product involves verifying requirements, planning, managing licenses.
Installation requirements
This section details hardware, software, and user privilege requirements that must be met in order to successfully install and run Rational® Test RealTime.
Planning the installation
After verifying hardware, software, and user privilege requirements, plan the features and software that you want to install.
Installing the product
Installing the product involves verifying requirements, planning, performing pre-installation tasks and managing licenses.
Starting Rational® Test RealTime
You can start your product from the desktop environment or a command-line interface.
Managing licenses
The license server and port for Rational® Test RealTime are set up when you install the product from IBM® Installation Manager. You can apply a license to a product or upgrade trial versions of an offering to a licensed version by importing a product activation kit. You can also enable floating license enforcement for offerings with trial or permanent licenses to use floating license keys from a license server. You can update the license and port from License Key Administrator (LKAD) that must be installed on your computer on Windows or by updating the script in the "testrtini.sh" file on Linux.
Use these topics to configure the product.
Target Deployment Port Editor overview
The TDP Editor provides a user interface designed to help you customize and create Target Deployment Ports (TDP) for any platform on which you want to run tests or programs.
Opening the Target Deployment Port Editor
Target Deployment Ports (TDP) are stored as XDP files, which can be viewed and edited with the Target Deployment Port Editor.
Creating a TDP
This topic provides a typical example workflow for creating a new target deployment port (TDP) for a C compiler.
Editing customization points in a TDP
Use the Target Deployment Port Editor to adapt an existing Target Deployment Port (TDP) to a specific target platform or development environment.
Read these topics to learn how to use the product.
This section applies only to Rational® Test RealTime for Eclipse IDE.
Generating test reports
You can generate tests reports from the results of a test harness run. Custom reports can be generated from XSL transforms.
Generating 2D and 3D chart data
You can use test data (initial values, expected values and obtained values) to generate various types of 2D and 3D graphs and charts in the chart viewer. This representation of test data is particularly valuable associated with a data pool to generate test patterns
Opening runtime analysis reports
After running an instrumented application or a test harness, runtime analysis results can be displayed in a series of specialized viewers or in HTML format reports.
Use these additional topics to gain more knowledge about the product.
