I want to install Websphere portal server with Eclipse. But, while installing, I am getting an error asking me to install IBM Rational Application Developer. Is it mandatory to install IBM Rational Application Developer for installing Websphere Portal Server?
While this might not be the answer you are looking for. I am running WPS in eclipse with Websphere Portlet Factory (not RAD) so if the requirement is demanding you have RAD it's wrong. But you may still be required to have an IBM product.
Keep this in mind also, you can run Portal Server contained inside of WAS without having any other IBM suite of products installed.
Not really. You can install the Portal server and deploy your WAR into it using admin console. This means that you will need to start and stop your server using the command. You will not run the portal server in your eclipse. But instead you will use the Portal server as a stand alone and your IDE as stand alone Dev application.
