IBM Rational Publishing Engine for IBM Rational Rhapsody
This course is based on IBM® Rational® Publishing Engine (RPE) V 2.1.1
IBM® Rational® Publishing Engine (RPE) automates document generation from IBM Rational solutions and select third-party tools. You can use RPE to automate the generation of documents for ad hoc use, formal reviews, contractual obligations or regulatory compliance.
Rational Publishing Engine provides:
Documents and reports: Generate high-quality documents with flexible formatting as well as composite reports containing data from multiple sources. Reports may be scheduled or invoked on demand.
Outputs: Support multiple output formats and concurrent document generation to multiple target formats from a single template.
Template editor: A graphical template editing environment for custom report design.
Data sources: Extract data from a single source or combine data from multiple sources for cross-domain reporting
Rational Publishing Engine consists of the following applications:
RPE Launcher – a standalone application for generating reports using predefined templates
Rational Reporting for Document Generation (RRDG) – wizard based document generation from within the tools themselves (for example from within Rhapsody)
RPE Document Studio – A graphical environment for designing and testing templates
RPE Document Builder – A web-based application that allows dynamic creation of reports by assembling templates, as well as automated, scheduled document generation
