Mastering Rational Software Architect v7 Training

Course#: WA1600

Rational Software Architect (RSA) v7 is an advanced modeling tool for development and design. It is used to generate and develop code based on a UML model. The goal is to explain in detail what RSA is and how to use the many aspects that are featured with this product. The course will teach how RSA can aid application development from the beginning stages of analysis and design to the generation of artifacts such as code and documentation.
