pure-systems has announced the availability of a new extension module for
the pure::variants variant management Eclipse plug-in.

pure::variants Connector for IBM® Rational® ClearQuest® simplifies the
management of tests and defects in the development and maintenance of
variant-rich products and software product lines - families of
similar-but-different software systems.

Connector for ClearQuest offers a connection between variant management
and test management/defect tracking. The focus is on visualizing the
status of a ClearQuest element.

Defects and test cases recorded in ClearQuest can be linked to specific
elements in pure::variants. This makes it possible to retrieve the last
state of each ClearQuest item. Where an error such as a not yet fixed
defect or a failed test exists, pure::variants reports an appropriate

Connections are made by means of the ID of the respective entry in the
ClearQuest database and stored in a special attribute in the corresponding
element in pure::variants.

pure::variants Connector for ClearQuest keeps the connection to the
ClearQuest database open and updates its status information at regular
intervals. Therefore changes are directly visible in pure::variants and
the information may be used to support the deployment process.

In a whitepaper "Efficient Management of Tests and Defects in Variant-Rich
Systems with pure::variants and IBM Rational ClearQuest" describes the
integration between pure::variants and ClearQuest in more detail, with
examples of test-management and defect tracking.

Software Acumen distributes pure::variants in the UK and Ireland.

Machines Corporation in the United States, other countries, or both.
