Requirements Management and Definition 1.0 Specification


This family of documents defines the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration Requirements Management and Definition specification, also known as OSLC RM. These documents collectively define the OSLC RM 1.0 specification, which is part of the OSLC group of specifications.

This specification supports key REST APIs for software Requirements Management systems. OSLC RM 1.0 takes an open, loosely coupled approach to specifc lifecycle integration scenarios. The scenarios and this V1.0 specification were created by the OSLC RM Working Group.

More information on the principles underlying OSLC and RM in particular can be found on the main OSLC site and the home page of the RM topic.
