It starts out as an idea, jot down a couple of ideas with a buddy over a drink, maybe grab a pen and a napkin, grab another napkin because we really have something here, collaborate more…. I know everyone reading this really want to finish the story with “you should just use Rational Software Architect Designer,” absolutely! Sketching out an idea has evolved from that napkin idea, well at least it has evolved once you reach for another napkin and start collaborating with your peers.
You can now bring all those innovative ideas into Rational Software Architect Designer (RSAD), elaborate a bit on your sketch within the RSAD palette with your peers. The next level will have you using Unified Modeling Language (UML) for designing your enterprise Java® applications and web services, far from that napkin you started with and with the collaboration from your whole team. This Model Driven Development (MDD) approach can help teams build out comprehensive designs with the modeling and development tools needed to deliver an end-to-end solution. RSAD delivers all this and more on an Eclipse open-source software framework that is extensible with a variety of Eclipse plugins for your development needs.
We know developers want the best of everything when it comes to their development tooling environment. We also know that developers want to ensure that their tools integrate with the other tools in their toolbox that they regularly use. Here at HCL, our Products & Platform division is driven to deliver on those expectations. We have a young development team that is currently growing, see careers at HCL, to meet the needs of our customers – YOU – the application developer! The focus of this Rational Application Developer for WebSphere (RAD) 9.6.1 mod release was all about currency; currency of your operating systems, your databases and of course currency of your middleware.
The Rational Asset Manager (RAM) 220.127.116.11 fix pack is now available for download.
