“Whether your API is available to external development teams or internal product teams, developers need a robust API readiness plan for this business critical asset, just as you would prepare a product readiness plan for a standard application,” said Lorinda Brandon, Director, API Partner Development at SmartBear. “IBM and SmartBear created an integration that brings the two technologies together, allowing teams to focus on API quality in addition to API operations. The plugin provides functionality for both the API consumer and API provider, regardless of whether you are using SOAP or REST as your protocol.”
SmartBear is also demonstrating Collaborator, the only tool available that allows peer review of source code, user stories, test plans and more with support for .docx, .xlsx and .pdf files. Collaborator is tightly integrated into IBM’s Rational Team Concert (RTC). The direct integration allows users to quickly create reviews based on work item state changes. Collaborator also supports Rational ClearCase and Synergy. For more information, visit: On Twitter, follow @CollaboratorSB.
