I have worked with RAD since 2005 developing Java Web application internally for IBM. It is the best development suite, very complete and powerful. The integration with the WAS Test environment is smooth and simple and makes the daily tests easy and fast!

RAD for WebSphere

Date:June 6, 2012
The Rational Application Developer 7.5 integration for WebSphere 7 has tremendously improved over previous versions. It is much easier to develop, test and deploy when compared to the basic open source tools.

Too big for normal JEE Development

Date:June 6, 2012
The Rational Application Developer product is a comprehensive solution for JEE development. However the product is too big for a normal day to day java development. The tool consists of many features but the development teams would like to have a smaller foot print, product that is quick to start and meets the day to day agile development. Liberty Profile for Websphere seems to be in the right direction to meet this needs.

Excellent development environment

Date:June 5, 2012
My company uses Rational Application Developer (RAD) for all of our web projects. With RAD we are able to develop robust services that we leverage by making calls both from our Web applications as well as our legacy VB6 applications. This allows us to share the functionality without having to deploy dependency files.
