Defining the RAM information model takes iteration and discussion. We wanted to visualize the RAM information model before committing it to RAM; and so we prepared the RAM Configurator. This RSx (Eclipse) plugin uses a RAM UML model profile to define the following elements of the RAM information model:

  • asset types
  • category schemas
  • asset attributes
  • relationship types

This article posted on developerWorks provides an overview of the RAM Configurator.

You can also download a viewlet demo. Unzip the file and open the .html file in your browser.

This plugin configures RAM from an RSA model, it also can read a RAM repository and create a model of the configuration. The RAM information model is defined at the repository level and at the community level. The RAM configuration this plugin works with is at the repository level.
