Rational Application Developer v7 - A First Look

This weekend, I spent a wee while getting used to the new RAD7 product. To be honest, I'd downloaded this before Christmas, but hadn't had time to do anything with it until now.

The first, and most positive sign, is that it was a simple matter to hook it up to a previously installed copy of WebSphere Portal v6.

I made the usual user error of getting the Portal administrative user ID or password wrong - which meant that I couldn't start/stop the server from within RAD. Once I resolved that issue, all was well.

The reason behind this was that I wanted to use the beta of WebSphere HATS v7 to generate a portlet for use within Portal.

Thus far, all is well.
