This RSA course is designed to prepare students to use the many modeling features of IBM Rational Software Architect (RSA) 8.0.4. Students will learn to navigate within the tool as well as introductory and advanced modeling concepts and techniques. This class is a combination of lectures followed with hands-on labs.nStudents will learn how to translate requirements into Use Cases and other artifacts, based on UML, and how these artifacts drive the development of class diagrams, sequence, and other UML diagrams. Students will also learn how to customize Rational Software Architect to clearly document and communicate system views. Students will understand how to support team development by integrating Rational Software Modeler with other tools in their environment to enable project teams to collaborate and track a project through its life cycle.
