3 Introduction Speaker Notes Hello my name is Max Vohlken.
I’m a release engineer for ClearCase and ClearQuest. My main responsibility is the automation used to build these two products. My automation tool of choice is Perl. I’ve been programming in Perl for over 15 years. Our development organization in the progress of migrating from using ClearQuest for defect tracking to using Rational TeamConcert(RTC). With ClearQuest we have automation that needed to be re-implemented using RTC. This automation was written in Perl. In my quest to re-implement this automation I’ve created a set of Perl modules to make interacting with RTC easier. The modules use OSLC to interact with RTC. Based on what I learned writing the RTC integration I have also created a similar set of modules for interacting with ClearQuest.

4 What services do the modules provide?
The goal of the modules is to query and update work items in RTC and change requests in CQ. The modules are based on an existing REST module called REST::Client. This module provided the standard REST methods of GET, PUT, PATCH, POST, and DELETE that OSLC uses. The modules implement the authentication scheme needed to access restricted resources in RTC and CQ. For RTC it implements the form based authentication scheme. For CQ it implements basic authentication. The modules implement the service discovery mechanism as documented by each products OSLC specification to discover the URL to use to execute dynamic queries.

5 The layout of the modules
After trying to implement these modules for both RTC and CQ I’ve come up with this convention for the different modules. The modules are written using Perl object oriented architecture. Lyo/OSLC/<product>/<domain>.pm Class that implements a client for a particular OSLC domain of a product. Lyo/OSLC/<product>.pm Class that implements methods that are common to the product and can be shared by the multiple domains. Lyo/OSLC.pm Base class for all OSLC modules. Methods common to all products go here. Lyo/OSLC/RDF.pm Class used to convert RDF formatted responses from the OSLC provider into equivalent Perl data structures. The methods that query the OSLC provider return an object of this type.

6 The modules Lyo/OSLC.pm Lyo/OSLC/RTC.pm Lyo/OSLC/CQ.pm Methods
credentials($user, $password) Lyo/OSLC/RTC.pm Implements form based authentication rootservices() Lyo/OSLC/CQ.pm Implements basic authentication

7 The modules Lyo/OSLC/RDF.pm
Module for dealing with the RDF/XML formatted responses Methods new ( $rdfxml, [%config] ) Init ( $rdfxml ) Add ( $rdfxml) QueryResults ( [$resultAR] ) QueryResultsByTitle ( ) QueryResultsByIdentifier ( ) Descriptions ( ) Links ( ) Namespaces ( ) QueryResponse ( ) UpdateByTitle ( ) UpdateByIdentifier ( ) ResolveReferences ( $force ) InlineRDFReferences ( )

8 The modules Lyo/OSLC/RTC/CM.pm Methods serviceProviders ()
servicesURL ($projectArea) services ($projectArea) projectAreaContextID ($projectArea) queryCapability ($projectArea, $queryCapability) queryCapabilityURL ($projectArea, $queryCapability) oslcWhere ($projectArea, $queryCapability, $where, $properties) workitem ($workItemNumber, $propertiesAR) workitemUpdate ($workItemNumber, $newValuesAR, $verbose) enumeration ($projectArea, $enum) enumerationItem ( $projectArea, $enum, $name ) workflow ($projectArea, $type, $name, $keyAttr) states ($projectArea, $stateType) state ( $projectArea, $enum, $name ) resolutions ($projectArea, $resolutionType) resolution ( $projectArea, $resolutionType, $name ) iterations () iteration ($title)

9 The modules Lyo/OSLC/CQ/CM.pm Methods serviceProviders ()
servicesURL ($userDB) services ($userDB) projectAreaContextID ($userDB) queryCapability ($userDB, $queryCapability) queryCapabilityURL ($userDB, $queryCapability) oslcWhere ($userDB, $queryCapability, $where, $properties) changeRequest ( $changeRequestNumber, $propertiesAR ) changeRequestUpdate ( $changeRequestNumber, $newValuesAR, $verbose )

10 RTC Query Example my $client = Lyo::OSLC::RTC::CM->new;
$client->credentials($opt{'user'}, $opt{'password'}); $client->setBaseURI($opt{'baseuri'}); my $rdfOjbect = $client->oslcWhere( $opt{'project'}, ‘Change request queries', $opt{'oslcwhere'}, $opt{'property'} ); my $arrayRef = $rdfObject->QueryResults(); foreach my $ref { my $id = $ref->{‘dcterms:identifier’}->{‘content’}; my $description = $ref->{‘dcterms:description’}->{‘content’}; }

11 RTC Work Item Update Example
my $client = Lyo::OSLC::RTC::CM->new; $client->credentials($opt{'user'}, $opt{'password'}); $client->setBaseURI($opt{'baseuri'}); = ( [‘dcterms:description’ => ‘Updated description’], [‘rtc_ext:CustomField1->{rdf:resource}’ => ‘https://rtc.mydomain.com/jazz/oslc/enumerations/_ABCDEFG/Model/Model.literal.l2’], ); $client->workitemUpdate($opt{'workitem'}, 1)

12 Scripts I’ve written to exercise the modules
rtcclient Usage: rtcclient [-h] rtcclient -baseuri <RTC jazz url> -user <user> -password <password> <url> rtcclient -baseuri <RTC jazz url> -user <user> -password <password> \ -project <project area> \ -oslcwhere <simple query> \ [-property <property> ...] -workitem <work item #> \ [-property <property> ...] \ [-update <field>=<value> ...] -enum <enum> -state <state> -resolution <resolution>

13 Scripts I’ve written to exercise the modules (continued)
cqclient Usage: cqclient [-h] cqclient -baseuri <CQ oslc url> -user <user> -password <password> <url> cqclient -baseuri <CQ oslc url> -user <user> -password <password> \ -db <CQ user db> \ -oslcwhere <simple query> \ [-property <property> ...] -cr <change request #> \ [-property <property> ...] \ [-update <field>=<value> ...]

14 Runtime Requirements perl or ratlperl Direct module dependencies
LWP::UserAgent URI Data::Dumper XML::Simple (not shipped with ratlperl) REST::Client (not shipped with ratlperl) All of the other modules these modules depend on.

15 What are the next steps? Add the ability to create new change management records Add a more robust RDF handling library Open the modules up for contributions from the community

16 Live Demo myrtcclient -workitem prop dcterms:title -prop rtc_ext:PatchBundle myrtcclient -workitem update “dcterms:description=apar for automation testing(3)”
