How is this done? Now that WSAD starts, it doesn't give me the option of creating (or using) and alternate workspace.

I'm using RAD 6.0 so it may be slightly different for you, but for me it's Window, Preferences, Workbench, Startup and Shutdown, Prompt for Workspace on Startup.

Go to the properties>target for websphere (or wherever you exe from)
and add this


to the end of your target. If you set this it will ask for new workspace.

In WSAD, once you tell the IDE to not prompt you for a new workspace each time, that is gone forever.

I use "-data" at the end of my target to use a specific/new workspace.
