+ <h1 id="Branches">Branches</h1>
+ <p>A fundamental feature provided by OSEE is the concurrent management of multiple variants or lines of a product. After a set of requirements is developed, it may become the baseline for variant sets of requirements for similar products. In other words, you may develop the same product for another customer, but have slight changes to the requirements, code, and test for features specific to that customer. </p>
+ <p>Historically, this would mean maintaining completely separate "copies" of all the requirements and other artifacts. This is costly to maintain when changes from the baseline artifacts must be propagated to the other product line. The expense of this undertaking increases dramatically as more customers are added, each with their own set of requirements changes.</p>
+ <p>For this reason, OSEE provides full
+ <b>branching</b> functionality. Using OSEE, it is possible to create these variant branches, record where they originated, and to apply changes made to a baseline branch to its variants.
+ </p>
+ <p>By default, OSEE has two system branches. The <tt>System Root Branch</tt> is the parent of all other branches in the system. The <tt>Common</tt> branch is used to store OSEE configuration information, such as users. <tt>Common</tt> is a child of <tt>System Root Branch</tt>.</p>
+ <h2 id="Working_Branches">Working Branches</h2>
+ <p>On complex projects, artifacts can be subject to modification by any one of hundreds of engineers. To have requirements "locked" while they are being modified by one user can cause significant delays in schedule. The need for parallel development (multiple users working on the same requirements) is a necessity to keeping a project moving forward. In addition, users making mistakes need the ability to revert or throw away their changes and start over without polluting the baseline branch. This is done using
+ <b>working branches</b>. A working branch is a sandbox area used to prepare a commit to a baseline branch.

+ <p>What it is
+ The search page in the Eclipse Search window for finding artifacts on the default branch.
+ How to use it</p>
+ <p>The Artifact Search page works by building a list of filters which that describe the desired artifacts. Filter types are selected from the drop down at the top of the page. After completing the options for the filter, pressing the Add Filter button will add the filter to the list of filters. If the Not Equal option is checked, then it will be added with the image signifying that the complement of the filter will be used.</p>
+ <p>Filters can be removed from the list at anytime by selecting the next to the filter.</p>
+ <p>The radio buttons in the Artifacts that match frame are used to control whether artifacts are returned that match every filter listed or at least one filter listed.</p>
+ <p>Once all of the options have been filled out, the Search button can be pressed to start the search against the default branch. For convenience the default branch is stated at the top of the search page. If a large number of artifacts will be returned then a confirmation will be displayed with a count of the artifacts that are about to be loaded.</p>
+ <p>The Search button will not be enabled until there is at least one filter in the list.</p><hr/>

+ <h1 id="Services">Services</h1>
+ <h2 id="Event_Service">Event Service</h2>
+ <p>OSEE is a client side application that runs off an Oracle database. As with many applications, OSEE caches some of the data it provides to the user. These caches need to be notified that there are updates available. These updates are triggered by an event service that "connects" all OSEE instances and notifies them that changes have been made to cached data.</p>
+ <p>When your application focus is on any OSEE View, you will notice a double-arrow icon at the bottom of your workbench. When NOT connected to the event service, this icon will show a red slash. When this happens, you should shutdown, restart and accept all OSEE updates. If this does not solve the problem, contact an OSEE Team member for help in resolving the problem.</p>
+ <h2 id="Attribute_Tagging_for_Quick_Search">Attribute Tagging for Quick Search</h2>
+ <p>When an artifact is saved, each attribute contained in the artifact is analyzed to produce a list of tags that are then associated with the artifact. Quick search is a form of <i>keyword</i> based searching which uses tags to perform contextual artifact searches.</p>
+ <p>For an attribute to be tagged by the system, it must meet the following criteria:</p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>The attribute's type must specify an <b>Attribute Tagger</b> to be used by the tagging system.</li>
+ <li>The attribute must contain valid data.</li>
+ <li>The attribute revision must be saved in the database before sending to tagging system.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>To produce tags, modified attributes are sent to the OSEE application server where the tagging system processes each attribute using an <b>Attribute Tagger</b> specified by the attribute's type. The <b>Attribute Tagger</b> knows how to interpret the attribute's data and how to extract words from the content. At this point, a word is defined as a sequential set of alphanumeric characters delimited by one or more spaces. As words are parsed, they are sent to the tagging system's word encoder where the following processing takes place:</p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>The characters in the original word are converted to lower case.</li>
+ <li>The lowercase version of the word is encoded and stored in the tagging system.</li>
+ <li>The lowercase version of the word is split using <tt>(' ', !, ", #, $, %, (, ), *, +, ,, -, ., /, :, ;, &lt;, &gt;, ?, @,
+ <a href=",">\, </a>, ^, {, |, }, ~, _)</tt> as delimiters.
+ </li>
+ <li>Words given in inflected form (possessive, plural, etc) are converted into
+ <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dictionary_form" target="osee_external">citation form</a>.
+ </li>
+ <li>Each word is encoded and stored in the tag system.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>When encoding words into tags, the tag encoder uses an algorithm which transforms the word's characters into a bit-packed tag that will fit in a 64-bit integer. The tag will represent up to 12 characters (all that can fit into 64-bits). Longer words will be turned into consecutive tags.</p>

+ <li>Revert the changes on the Source Branch (This is the only available solution when the Artifact/Attribute was deleted on the Destination Branch, will show up as no change on the Change Report)</li>

+ <h3 id="GUI_Overview">GUI Overview</h3>
+ <p>The GUI is organized to provide the user with an ability to quickly identify conflicts.</p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Heading</b> - The Heading contains text to help identify what is being merged. It identifies the Source Branch, and the Destination Branch. It also provides the user with information about how many conflicts there are and if they have been resolved. The Heading also contains easy launch icons for additional tools in connection with the Merge Manager.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Conflict Resolution Column</b> - This column provides the user information about the state of the conflict. A blank entry in the column means that the conflict is new and has not had any actions performed on it.
+ <ul>
+ <li>A
+ <img border="0" src="images/Chkbox_disabled.gif"/> indicates that conflict is in the modified state. This means the user has begun merging the conflict but has not marked it as resolved. The user may transition it into the resolved state by left clicking on the
+ <img border="0" src="images/Chkbox_disabled.gif"/> icon.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Accept.gif"/> icon indicates the user has marked the conflict as resolved. This means they have selected a value for it and have verified the value going in is what they want. No additional changes are allowed on a conflict once it is in the resolved state. It can be placed back into the modified state by left clicking on the
+ <img border="0" src="images/Accept.gif"/> icon.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Chkbox_enabled_conflicted.gif"/> means that a conflict was in the resolved state but a new change has occurred on either the Source or Destination Branch. It serves to notify the user that the conflict was not in the finalized state when they resolved the conflict. The user can return to resolved state by left clicking on the
+ <img border="0" src="images/Chkbox_enabled_conflicted.gif"/> icon.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Red_light.gif"/> icon indicates that an Artifact or Attribute must be reverted on the Source Branch. This indicates that the Artifact/Attribute was deleted on the Destination Branch and can not have a change committed onto it. The user must abandon any change to that artifact attribute by using the revert command. Once the Artifact/Attribute has been reverted the Merge Manager will be refreshed and the conflict will be removed.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Issue.gif"/> icon indicates an informational conflict. The user does not have to take any action to resolve these conflicts. It just provides the information that the Source Branch deleted the Artifact/Attribute but the Destination Branch has been modified. The user is free to act as desired based on the provided information.
+ </li>
+ </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Artifact Name Column</b> - This column tells which artifact the conflict occurred on. If the name is different between the Source and Destination Branches, (this will show up as a conflict) it will at first showing use the Source Branch value and then use whatever the name is resolved to be after that has occurred.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Artifact Type Column</b> - Simply lists what type of Artifact is conflicted
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Conflicting Item Column</b> - In the case of an attribute conflict it states what attribute type is conflicting. In the case of an artifact conflict it will always say "Artifact State"
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Source Value Column</b> - When possible this column tells what value the Source Branch has for the conflict. It will always have a
+ <img border="0" src="images/Green_s.gif"/> icon. If the conflicting item is Word Formatted Content the words "Stream data" will be shown. For artifact conflicts it will either show "Modified" or "Deleted". Left clicking on the
+ <img border="0" src="images/Green_s.gif"/> icon will populate the Merge Branch with value found on the Source Branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Destination Value Column</b> - When possible this column tells what value the Destination Branch has for the conflict. It will always have a
+ <img border="0" src="images/Blue_d.gif"/> icon. If the conflicting item is Word Formatted Content the words "Stream data" will be shown. For artifact conflicts it will either show "Modified" or "Deleted". Left clicking on the
+ <img border="0" src="images/Blue_d.gif"/> icon will populate the Merge Branch with value found on the Destination Branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>The Merge Value Column</b> - The Merged Value column serves to show the user the value that has been selected for use when the Branch is committed. The Merge value is actually kept on a new "Merge Branch" and so any changes made to it will not affect the value seen on the Source or Destination Branches. When the Merge Value column is blank with no icon, the conflict is informational and no actions are provided.
+ <ul>
+ <li>When the Merge Value column contains a
+ <img border="0" src="images/Conflict.gif"/> icon the value has not been set. This is the icon that should be shown for all conflicts (Except informational conflicts, or same value conflicts) the first time the user brings up the merge manager.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Green_s.gif"/> icon indicates that the Source Value was selected as the final value. The actual Source Value text will also be shown in this column if possible.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Blue_d.gif"/> icon indicates that the Destination Value was selected as the final value. The Destination Value text will also be shown in this column if possible.
+ </li>
+ <li>The
+ <img border="0" src="images/Yellow_m.gif"/> icon will be shown when a new value has been selected for the final value. This indicates that the user has modified the final value so that it is no longer a copy of the Source or Destination, but some variation thereof.
+ </li>
+ <li>A
+ <img border="0" src="images/Accept.gif"/> icon indicates that although both the Source Branch Value and Destination Branch Value have changed they were both changed to the same value and so there is not really a conflict. Left clicking on the icon in the Merge Value column will bring up the Merge Wizard or in the case of un-resolvable conflicts a dialog offering the ability to revert the conflicting item.

If the deletion should not have happened the user needs to talk with the committer of the deletion to resolve the issue.

+ <h3 id="Word_Formatted_Content_Conflict_Resolution">Word Formatted Content Conflict Resolution</h3>
+ <p>Resolution of conflicts is provided in two different ways. They can either copy and paste the changes into their Merge Artifact document or they can generate a Three Way Merge and accept the changes that show up in the generated document. Both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages and are best suited for different situations. They can also be combined where the situation warrants it, however the three way merge must always be done first if this is the case.</p>
+ <h3 id="Manual_Merging">Manual Merging</h3>
+ <p>
+ <b>Usage:</b>
+ </p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>When one version of the artifact has many changes and the other version has very few changes</li>
+ <li>When both files have formatting changes</li>
+ <li>When three way merging generates a complex document</li>
+ <li>When both versions edit the same text in multiple places</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>Manual Merging is the process of combining the Source Branch changes and the destination branch changes manually by copying and pasting them into the Merge Artifact document. The Merge Artifact is a separate version of the artifact that will preserve the details of the Merge, and will be reviewable in the Merge Manager after an artifact is committed. IMPORTANT: If the user makes the changes to their Source Branch instead of on the Merge Artifact the Merge Manager will incorrectly represent the merge in future reviews.</p>
+ <p>The following procedure illustrates the functionality available to facilitate a manual merge.</p>
+ <p>The user will first either launch the Merge Wizard by left clicking on the icon in the Merge Value column of the GUI or they may select the functionality from the right click menu for the conflict in question. The first thing to do is to bring up a word document comparison of both the Source Branch Version and the Destination Branch Version. These documents will show all of the changes that have been made to these two artifacts since the Source Branch was created. To launch these difference's the user either select "Show Source Diff" and "Show Destination Diff" from the wizard or "Differences"-&gt;"Show Source Branch Differences" and "Differences"-&gt;"Show Destination Branch Differences" from the right click menu. These will bring up the two difference's in different Word instances with window labels to allow the user to differentiate the files. The intention of bringing up these difference's is twofold. Firstly, it allows the user to identify the file that has the most changes. Secondly, it will come in use later when the user copy's and paste's changes into the Merge document.</p>
+ <p>Upon identifying the branch that has the most changes the user should then set the Merge Artifact to contain that branches value. This is done by either selecting "Populate with Source Data" or "Populate with Destination Data" from the Merge Wizard or left clicking on the icon or the icon in the Source and Destination Value columns in the Merge Manager GUI. The user can then bring up the Merge Artifact for editing by clicking on "Edit Merge Artifact" in the Merge Wizard or in the right click menu. The Document that comes up contains the Merge Artifact and any changes made to it will be reflected when the Source Branch is committed. The user can than begin to copy the changes from the diff report that showed the fewest changes (opposite of the one chosen as the baseline). After all changes have been migrated into the Merge Artifact document the user than saves the document, which will preserve the Merge Artifact value. The user should be aware that any changes they do not wish to preserve from either the Source or Destination version of the Artifact need to be omitted on the Merge Artifact.</p>
+ <p>The user then right clicks on the in the Conflict Status Column so that the icon is displayed. The conflict is resolved and will allow the Source Branch to be committed.</p>
+ <h4 id="Three_Way_Merge">Three Way Merge</h4>
+ <p>
+ <b>Usage:</b>
+ </p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>When both versions have many changes or both versions have few changes.</li>
+ <li>When only one file has formatting changes (Must be combined with Manual Merging in this case)</li>
+ <li>When three way merging generates an understandable document </li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>Three Way Merging leverages Microsoft Words ability to merge documents. At the beginning of any Word Formatted Content merge it is recommended that user generate a Three Way Merge and check the complexity of the document. In most cases Three Way Merging is a quicker way to merge two documents, however in some cases the Three Way Merge will generate a document that is difficult to use and understand. This usually arises when the Source and Destination branches have edited the same text or if one of the branches has touched a large percentage of the file. As it runs fairly quickly it is always a good idea to run it at the beginning of a Merge to check if it is useful. Three Way Merging only allows the user to maintain format changes from one of the documents. If format changes are made on both documents the Three Way Merge will prompt the user as to which format changes they would like to maintain, the user will then need to copy the format changes from the other document into the Merge Artifact document manually.</p>
+ <p>A Three Way Merge is generated by selecting Generate Three Way Merge from either the Merge Wizard or the right click menu. IMPORTANT: Generating a Three Way Merge will discard any changes made to the Merge Artifact, therefore a prompt will make sure this is the intended operation. If a user had started a Three Way Merge previously but had not completed the Merge the user is also given the option of continuing the previous Merge in the prompt (Selecting Edit Merge Artifact will also have this effect). The following is an example of a Three Way Merge in Word.</p>
+ <p>
+ <img width="650" align="middle" border="0" src="images/WordThreeWayMerge.png"/>
+ </p>
+ <p>The changes made by the Source Branch and Destination Branch are shown in different colors in the Word Document. In this particular case the changes made in Red were done by the Source Branch and the changes made in Blue were done on the Destination Branch. The color scheme is not consistent and the user needs to verify which color equates to which changes by hovering there mouse over one of the changes. A popup will be shown which will identify the author. The following Guide will explain how to resolve the changes in the document. IMPORTANT: All changes must be either accepted or rejected before the conflict can be marked as resolved. After the user has resolved all the changes it is a good idea to do generate a difference document between the Source Artifact and the Merge Artifact, and the Destination Artifact and the Merge Artifact by selecting "Show Source/Merge Diff" and "Show Destination/Merge Diff" from the merge Wizard or "Differences"-&gt;"Show Source/Merge Differences" and "Differences"-&gt;"Show Destination/Merge Differences" from the right click menu. These views will show the differences between the branch artifact and the merge artifact. For the Source/Merge difference this will show everything that is different between the source document and the Merge document. In the case where the user accepts all changes from the source and destination branches this diff will highlight all of the changes that occurred on the destination branch. In the Destination/Merge diff it will highlight all of the changes that happened on the source branch. It is always possible to use Manual Merging techniques in conjunction with Three Way Merging.</p>
+ <p>The user then right clicks on the in the Conflict Status Column so that the icon is displayed. The conflict is resolved and will allow the Source Branch to be committed.</p>
+ <p>
+ <img width="400" align="middle" border="0" src="images/Word_formatted_content_merge_wizard.jpg"/>
+ </p>
+ <h3 id="Additional_Features">Additional Features</h3>
+ <p>The Merge Wizard contains a "Clear the Merge Artifact" that is not available from the right click menu and only available for Word Formatted Content. This will empty out the Merge artifact and allow the user to start with an empty document for editing. It will also place a
+ <img border="0" src="images/Conflict.gif"/>icon in the merge value column for that conflict.
+ </p>
+ <h3 id="Step-By-Step_Recipe">Step-By-Step Recipe</h3>
+ <p>Upon selecting to commit a working branch, OSEE will prompt the user to perform a merge if conflicts are detected between the changes made on the child branch and any changes made to the parent branch since the child branch was created. </p>

+ </p>
+ <p>Perform the following steps for each artifact listed on the
+ <i>Merge Manager</i> tab:
+ </p>
+ <ol>
+ <li>Determine which change would be the easiest to re-implement (typically the smaller and simpler of the two). This can be done by comparing all of the changes made to this UI.
+ <ol>
+ <li>
+ <b>Show Source Diff</b> displays the changes made on this working branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>Show Destination Diff</b> displays the changes made on the parent branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>Show Source/Destination Diff</b> displays the effect on the parent branch prior to any merge management. This view will show how the changes made on this working branch will be overwritten by the changes made on the parent branch.
+ </li>
+ </ol>
+ </li>
+ <li>Select the
+ <i>more complicated</i> of the two changes to populate the Merge Artifact:
+ <b>Populate with Source Data</b> or
+ <b>Populate with Destination Data</b>. The Merged Value column on the
+ <i>Merge Manager</i> tab and the top-most icon in the
+ <i>Edit the attribute</i> window will update to display "S" or "D" based upon this selection.
+ </li>
+ <li>Select
+ <b>Edit Merge Artifact</b> to open the merge document for editing.
+ </li>
+ <li>Re-implement the changes from the
+ <i>simpler</i> change report.
+ </li>
+ <li>If at any time the merge effort needs to be cleared or re-started, select
+ <b>Clear the Merge Artifact</b>.
+ </li>
+ <li>The following selections may be used to review and confirm the changes made during the merge. Prior to updating the Merge Artifact, these selections will not provide accurate information.
+ <ol>
+ <li>
+ <b>Show Source/Merge Diff</b> displays the additional changes beyond those made on the working branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <b>Show Destination/Merge Diff</b> displays the additional changes beyond those made on the parent branch.
+ </li>
+ </ol>
+ </li>
+ <li>Select
+ <b>Finish</b>
+ </li>
+ <li>Under the Conflict Resolution column on the
+ <i>Merge Manager</i> tab, check the box so that the resolution status updates from "Modified" to "Resolved".
+ </li>
+ <li>Once all artifact conflicts have been addressed, the
+ <i>Merge Manager</i> tab will report "All Conflicts Are Resolved." At this point, the user can return to the Workflow tab and re-initiate committing the branch.
+ </li>
+ <li>OSEE will display the

+ <p>The
+ <a href="http://www.eclipse.org/osee" target="osee_external">Open System Engineering Environment (OSEE)</a> project provides a tightly integrated environment supporting lean principles across a product's full life-cycle in the context of an overall systems engineering approach. The system captures project data into a common user-defined data model providing bidirectional traceability, project health reporting, status, and metrics which seamlessly combine to form a coherent, accurate view of a project in real-time. By building on top of this data model, OSEE has been architected to provide an all-in-one solution to configuration management, requirements management, testing, validation, and project management. All of these work together to help an organization achieve lean objectives by reducing management activities, eliminating data duplication, reducing cycle-time through streamlined processes, and improving overall product quality through work flow standardization and early defect detection.

+ <h2 id="Eclipse_Installation">Eclipse Installation</h2>
+ <p>To install OSEE: Start by downloading the OSEE Application Server and the OSEE Client Update Archive from the
+ <a href="http://www.eclipse.org/osee/downloads/" target="osee_external">downloads</a> page.
+ </p>
+ <h3 id="Quick_Server_Installation">Quick Server Installation</h3>
+ <p>If you are interested in a quick start, and are not setting up a custom database installation, setting up the OSEE server with the bundled HSQLDB database is simple.</p>
+ <ul>
+ <li>Create a directory to place your server in, and unzip the downloaded server zip file (e.g. org.eclipse.osee.x.server.runtime.zip) into that directory.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>You should end up with the following files and directories:</p>
+ <dl>
+ <dd>configuration</dd>
+ <dd>demo</dd>
+ <dd>eclipse</dd>
+ <dd>etc</dd>
+ <dd>plugins</dd>
+ <dd>runDemo.bat</dd>
+ <dd>runDemo.sh</dd>
+ <dd>runHsql.sh</dd>
+ <dd>runPostgreSqlLocal.sh</dd>
+ </dl>
+ <ul>
+ <li>Edit the desired startup script file (e.g. "runDemo.bat") to provide the server the link to the binary data.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>For example, if you were using Windows, and you installed to C:/UserData/OseeDemo, you would change the line in the batch file to:</p>
+ <ul style="list-style: square">
+ <li>
+ <ul style="list-style: square">
+ <li>Dosee.application.server.data="C:/UserData/OseeDemo/demo/binary_data"</li>
+ </ul>
+ </li>
+ <li>change to the etc directory, and edit the osee.hsql.json file.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>Set the jdbc.server.db.data.path to the location of the hsql db.
+ Following the example above, for instance, you would change the line in the json file to:</p>
+ <dl>
+ <dd>"jdbc.server.db.data.path": "file:c:/UserData/OseeDemo/demo/hsql/osee.hsql.db",</dd>
+ </dl>
+ <p>That completes the simple server setup.
+ Run the server by setting up a command window, then running the script file to start the server.
+ For example, if you were running with Windows, you would start a windows command shell, then run the "runDemo.bat" batch script. See
+ <a href="Installation-and-Initialization.html#Launch_Application_Server">Launch Application Server</a> for details on running the server.

+ <p>Before you can launch OSEE, you will need the address of an arbitration server or an application server to access the OSEE data store. If you have questions regarding client/server interactions, visit 'Client/Server Overview'. If everything is on the same machine, the following examples will work.

+ <h1 id="Planned_Capabilities_for_OSEE_Release_0.8.2">Planned Capabilities for OSEE Release 0.8.2</h1>
+ <p>This release of OSEE concentrated on major bug fixes. However, an effort to improve our ability to support our customer base had also been initiated. This effort required selected customers to reevalute the actions they have originated and determine if these actions can be retracted (cancelled), particularly if they fall into any of the following categories:</p>
+ <ol>
+ <li>
+ <i>Overcome by events/no longer valid.</i>
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <i>Not backed up by a requirement (e.g. development of an emulator/model).</i>
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <i>Of relatively low importance or priority.</i>
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <i>Limited applicability to the user community.</i>
+ </li>
+ <li>
+ <i>Duplicates.</i>
+ </li>
+ </ol>
+ <p>Thanks to all who participated and helped us bring down the number of active actions so we can reasonably assess their relative importance and subsequently, get them into a release sometime in the future. </p>
+ <p>
+ <b>Results:</b> Total Actions: 529; Total Cancelled: 324; Total Completed:188; Pending: 17

+ </p>
+ <h2 id="Do_I_have_to_use_Microsoft_Word_to_enter_my_requirements.3F">Do I have to use Microsoft Word to enter my requirements?</h2>
+ <p>Quick Answer: No</p>
+ <p>This question comes up when users find out that OSEE is integrated with Microsoft Word as one method to enter artifact data such as requirements.</p>
+ <p>OSEE uses Artifacts, Attributes and Relations to store information in its data store. The Attributes associated with a certain Artifact can be boolean, text, date, float or any newly created attribute type. One such attribute type is a "Word Content" attribute. This allows word content to be added as an attribute to an Artifact. This attribute, however, is not required to be used. One could define a "Software Requirement" to be any set of Attribute types that must/can be entered. Although, Word 2003 XML is more tightly integrated into OSEE, the architecture provides for other editing applications to be plugged in. We are actively working on adding tight integration with Open Office to edit requirements.</p>
+ <p>In addition to this specific type of Attribute, OSEE does allows any operating system file to be dragged in and created as an Artifact. This artifact, when opened, will extract its data and present it to the operating system to allow viewing and editing. This allows things like requirements to be specified by other modeling, diagraming or even mathematical applications that OSEE doesn't know about. These artifacts can have their own metadata associated and also be related to other artifacts in the system.</p>
+ <h2 id="Importing_Microsoft_Word.28c.29_documents_into_OSEE">Importing Microsoft Word(c) documents into OSEE</h2>
+ <p>Yes. OSEE will import existing Word 2003 XML documents and atomize them by their paragraph sections. The Word styles "Heading (1...9)" are used to determine the breakout into individual artifacts and their position in the document hierarchy.</p>
+ <h2 id="How_are_MS_Word_styles_and_formatting_handled.3F">How are MS Word styles and formatting handled?</h2>
+ <p>Whole MS Word documents can be stored and edited as an artifact like any other native file type without any formatting restrictions of any kind. However, to use the more tightly integrated support such as editing many artifacts in a single Word document or the document generation capabilities, then the file format needs to be MS Word 2003 XML. Since OSEE supports user defined Word XML templates for editing, previewing, comparing, and publishing, the user has complete control over the Word styles (and all other formatting) through the rendering templates. The only formmatting requirements for Word content are that when importing the Word styles "Heading (1...9)" are used to determine the breakout into individual artifacts and their position in the document hierarchy.</p>

+ <p>As you may have already seen, Word will take the following:

+ <ul style="list-style: square">
+ <li>&gt; XXX, or A. -&gt; XXX, or 1 -&gt; XXX, etc.</li>
+ </ul>
+ <p>This will cause incorrect formatting, because Word will automatically create styles that are not part of the templates used for rendering and publishing in OSEE. Ultimately this auto-numbering leads to the need for fix RPCRs. Additionally when introduced using Word 2003, it can cause compatibility issues. </p>

+ <h2 id="Creating_Cross-References_between_Multiple_Word_Artifacts_having_OLE_Data">Creating Cross-References between Multiple Word Artifacts having OLE Data</h2>
+ <p>
+ <b>Issue:</b> OSEE is unable to open Word Artifacts containing OLE Data for multi-edit. Therefore, I am unable to create cross-references between sections of artifacts.
+ </p>
+ <h3 id="Method1:_Use_single_edit">Method1: Use single edit</h3>
+ <ol>
+ <li>Open each artifact for edit separately.</li>
+ <li>In the artifact with the figure, ensure the figure has an associated auto-reference number (i.e., the figure has a title/caption paragraph with a field code for the auto-reference). Create one if it does not already have one using normal MSWord procedure (right-click on the figure and select Insert Caption, etc.).</li>
+ <li>In the artifact with the figure, create a temporary paragraph with a temporary sentence that says “As shown in .”</li>
+ <li>At the end of the temporary sentence, insert an auto-reference to the figure using normal MSWord procedure (use the References tab and select Cross-reference, etc.). The temporary sentence should now say, “As shown in Figure x” where x is the figure number.</li>
+ <li>Copy the field code from the temporary sentence (i.e., the part that says “Figure x” and which will turn gray when selected) from the artifact with the figure in it to the other artifact that you want to reference the figure from. This copy/paste will result in copying the field code for the figure over to the other artifact. Copy it to the text location where it is needed in the other artifact.</li>
+ <li>Once edits are complete, delete the temporary paragraph that was put into the artifact with the figure in it. </li>
+ <li>Save both artifacts (there is no need to save the artifact with the figure in it unless you made substantive changes, such as adding the title/caption paragraph to the figure per Step 2 above).</li>
+ </ol>
+ <h3 id="Method2:_Separate_contents_and_reference_with_hyperlinks">Method2: Separate contents and reference with hyperlinks</h3>
+ <ol>
+ <li>Create a separate artifact for the section that needs to be referenced. </li>
+ <li>Create hyperlinks to the new artifact from the referencing artifact.</li>
+ </ol>
+ <h2 id="Word_XML_opening_in_XML_editor_instead_of_Word">Word XML opening in XML editor instead of Word</h2>
+ <p>Sometimes, the registry settings for what to open XML documents can get set incorrectly. A common symptom is that links to Word documents in OSEE open in an XML editor or IE. To fix this, modify the registry entry:
+ <b>Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\xmlfile\shell\open\command</b> to the correct version of Office. For Office 2013, the value would be:
+ <b>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE15\MSOXMLED.EXE" /verb open "%1"</b> (with quotes)

+ <h1 id="Frequently_Asked_Questions">Frequently Asked Questions</h1>
+ <h2 id="Do_I_have_to_create_a_new_database_table_for_every_type_of_Artifact_that_I_want_to_use.3F">Do I have to create a new database table for every type of Artifact that I want to use?</h2>
+ <p>Quick Answer: No</p>
+ <p>The OSEE Architecture Framework uses a common table structure to store all types of artifacts, attributes and relations. This allows the users to dynamically create and start using new objects without major database modification.</p>
+ <h2 id="Do_I_have_to_use_the_Artifact_types_that_are_built_into_OSEE.3F">Do I have to use the Artifact types that are built into OSEE?</h2>
+ <p>Quick Answer: No</p>
+ <p>All Artifact Types, Attribute Types and Relation Types (with a few exceptions) are fully customizable. Although OSEE was initially built for capturing all data throughout the lifecycle of a large avionics systems engineering project, it was architected to store any data by simply defining a different data model to use.</p>
+ <p>In addition, these data models can be dynamically modified. New Artifacts, Attributes and Relations can be specified at anytime (and even by end users if allowed). Modification and deletion of these can be performed with some administrative back-end tools with the understanding that you would need to determine what to do with the removed data.</p>
+ <h2 id="How_do_I_delete_artifact_types.3F">How do I delete artifact types?</h2>
+ <p>There is a BLAM called "Purge Artifact Type" that is used to permanently remove all traces of an artifact type from the OSEE database. The BLAM allows the user to select one or more artifact types to purge. If any artifact instances of the doomed artifact type exist, a different artifact type can be specified; these artifacts will be converted to the new type. Otherwise, the BLAM will abort upon discovering an artifact that is of a type to be purged; that is, the BLAM will never delete any artifacts.</p>
+ <h2 id="Can_OSEE_be_used_offline_and_later_sync.27d_up.3F">Can OSEE be used offline and later sync'd up?</h2>
+ <p>Although OSEE does not currently provide the capability to download database artifacts, work offline and then sync up when re-connected, it was certainly a consideration in the design. The most complex part would be resolving conflicts that may occur to artifacts edited in both disconnected OSEE's. Since OSEE already has the capability to run on multiple databases and the capability to export and import artifacts, it would just take some effort to provide the first versions of this feature. This would be a great area for collaboration.</p>
+ <h2 id="Can_I_import_existing_traceability_into_OSEE.3F">Can I import existing traceability into OSEE?</h2>
+ <p>Quick Answer: Yes</p>
+ <p>Since traceability is usually defined in a way that is specific to it's use and the objects that are being traced, there is currently no "generic" traceability importing in OSEE, however OSEE provides BLAM that would enable traceability to be imported from existing applications, documents, excel spreadsheets. This capability has already been used a number of times to successfully import traceability from legacy documents and systems on projects OSEE has been deployed to.</p>
+ <h2 id="Can_I_import_from_Microsoft_Excel.26copy.3B.3F">Can I import from Microsoft Excel&amp;copy;?</h2>
+ <p>Quick Answer: Yes</p>
+ <p>Through OSEE's BLAM tool, users can import from other applications, documents and spreadsheets.</p>
+ <h2 id="How_do_I_publish_documents_from_OSEE.3F">How do I publish documents from OSEE?</h2>
+ <p>The majority of the work in publishing out of OSEE has been in the format of Microsoft Word&#169; documents. The user can create a Word template that "describes" the format, headers, footers and what data maps into the specified areas in the template. A BLAM is then run where the user can specify the branch and what artifacts are to be published. Upon execution, the documents are created. This method has successfully generated documents in excess of 10,000 pages that were delivered to the customer.</p>
+ <p>The OSEE architecture also supports other methods of publishing including web and open document formats. Depending on the level of complexity, some work would be done to provide further export capabilities.</p>
+ <p>Another form of publishing that OSEE was architected for is delivery of OSEE and the database. Although OSEE can publish documents and reports, it was decided early on that the vendors and customers would want and need the same navigation and exportation capabilities that OSEE provides. Instead of delivering generated documents, one of the projects that OSEE is deployed on delivers a copy of OSEE with a sanitized database (confidential data removed). This has been very successful from both the program and customer's point of view.</p>
+ <h2 id="What_databases_can_be_used_with_OSEE.3F">What databases can be used with OSEE?</h2>
+ <p>OSEE was architected to be database independent and should run on any SQL-99 compliant DB that has a JDBC driver. It is currently runs on Oracle 10g and 11g and PostgreSQL 8.2. In the past, OSEE has also been run on Derby and MySQL. The current release of OSEE would need to be tested for compatibility with Derby, MySQL, or any other database. If desired, the OSEE Team could work with the user/developers to help perform this task.</p>
+ <h2 id="Is_OSEE_Compatible_with_Office_2007.3F">Is OSEE Compatible with Office 2007?</h2>
+ <p>Yes, OSEE is compatible. When storing word content in XML format make sure to use
+ <b>Word 2003 XML Document (*.xml)</b> format.
