Why IBM has two different products ?
As per my understanding RSA -> Rational + WebSphere -> mainly used for Architects who designed the system, RAD - pure IDE

Kri,
One is more expensive than the other. Maybe they want to let people choose how much functionality they need rather than go for everyone getting the more costly product?

RAD gives you(Full IDE for J2EE, Web Services, database, etc...)
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/awdtools/developer/application/index.html
You get full WAS 6.0 Base server as a test environment with RAD.

RSM (Modeler) is a modeling tool. It is the next generation of Rational Rose and Rational XDE

RSM + RAD + a little bit more stuff = RSA (Architect).
RSA gives you all the modeling (use cases, all UML 2.0, etc.. + the whole RAD IDE)
Pattern and transformation authoring and generation.

In the RAD, whether WAS 6.0's server test environment has all features of WAS 6.0 ?

Yes. The WebSphere instance is a real server. The only think you don't get is the network deployment edition/functionality.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
