If I have RSA, I don't need RAD?

Hi folks

I'm new at the IBM products, and I'm using RSA 7, but sometimes I feel like it's not complete (SOme functionalities are not present).

I've heard some people saying that RSA is like a RAD++, that is, RSA has all the functionalities from RAD and more.
If I have RSA, I don't need RAD?
Is it true?

Thanks

The titles give you the clue: Rational Software Architect and Rational Application Developer. RAD has a small subset of the tools available in RSA. If you have RSA you don't need RAD.

What functionality is not present that you expect to be available?

hum..
That's what people usually said me.

Recently I tried to generate .java files from a class diagram in RSA and I couldn't.
The option transform is not avaliable, when I try I get the message "No applicable configuration" and even didn't find how to create the "configuration" it needs.
I've searching it in the web and found some tutorials and topics about doing it in RAD, not in RSA, so I think it's not a functionality of RSA.

Am I wrong?
And if you know hoe to generate java files from the class diagram in RSA, please tell me.

Thanks for your answer.

Its definately something you can do in RSA - it is after all a tool designed specifically for model driven software development. Afraid I don;t have it installed anymore, so can't check how you do it, but there should be examples in the product documentation. I'd have a look there.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
