OSLC Connect for Windchill enables users of PTC’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Windchill™ ecosystem to share information with other OSLC tools such as OSLC Connect for Jira, SECollab or IBM’s Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem. The Connector uses OSLC standards from the OASIS Open Standards Network, protocols, and user interface elements over modern Representational State Transfer (REST) web services to provide this sharing of information. Information is linked between systems, not replicated, optimizing storage and consistency.
OSLC Connect for Windchill is implemented as an extension to the Windchill PLM system:
This extension is a collection of Java Jars that implement both an “OSLC Provider” for Windchill PLM content to the IBM ALM system, and an “OSLC Consumer” of ALM content from the IBM ALM system to the Windchill PLM system.
