Getting Started - Registering the Project
Chapter 2 - About This Tutorial
Now you are ready to start your work for ClassicsCD, Inc.! To understand how
Rational Suite fits into your development environment, we recommend that you work
through the entire tutorial. Follow the instructions for each exercise exactly as they are
printed, and make sure you complete all exercises in each chapter before attempting
to perform the exercises in subsequent chapters. Each series of exercises builds upon
the information and skills you learned in previous chapters.
Registering the Project
In a typical development environment, a project administrator sets up the Rational
software environment and creates a Rational project in the Rational Administrator.
Your project administrator uses the Rational Administrator to group a set of projects
associated with Rational Suite (for example, a RequisitePro database and a Rose
model). As a user, you register the project to your computer so that you can connect to,
and work with, the project on the network. In this tutorial, the Rational project has
been created for you.
Exercise: Register the Rational project you will use in this tutorial.
To start the Rational Administrator, click Start > Programs >
<RationalSuiteProductName> > Rational Administrator
In the left pane of the Rational Administrator, right-click Projects. From the
shortcut menu that appears, click Register Existing Project (see Figure 2).
