This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
Our install of RAD has a 5.1 application server installation option. Once you install that, you then need to run the mother of all patches (available from within WSAD) which takes hours and hours to download. So start the download when you leave for the day.
When you create a J2EE project in RAD, you can specify a J2EE level.
Perhaps your J2EE project is above the J2EE level of WAS 5.1. It would be a sensible answer given your exception.
Good luck, and Happy WebSphere!

I believe you are on to the problem Kameron. When I start a new "Dynamic Web Project" and click the "Show Advanced" button, there is a "Target server" list. Unfortunately, the only server in the list is WebSphere Application Server v6.0. I can click the "New" button beside this list but that brings up another window with v6.0 as the only available IBM target.
