I received an email from my IBM account rep.

He said this about RAD 7.0:

"Yes, December 5th is the release date for electronic delivery of the new Software Development Platform products, including RAD."

Heh...

This is great news. I hate having nothing to do over Christmas, when everyone else is surrounded by people that love them. It'll be nice playing with version 7, although I'm still unaware of what they'll call it. Is it still IRAD?

Hi, can you help me with a link with RAD 7.0 benefits and /or known issues? Do they have something specified for the version they are releasing?

Anyone aware of an FTP site to download RAD 7?

I'm currently downloading with Download Director, but it's brutally slow. This is not surprising. Based on my past experiences downloading ultra huge files from IBM, FTP has worked much, much better.

When I downloaded RAD 6.0 with Download Director it took me most of the day. And then the result was corrupt files. So I did it again the next day, with the same result. Eventually I had to get them to send me CDs. So, good luck with your downloads. I don't expect to have time to do that until maybe early next year.

I am downloading RAD 7.0 right now. (My company belongs to IBM's Passport Advantage program. The software is available in the Passport Advtange download area).

I'm downloading it as well. I just hate downloading through http connections.

I called IBM and according to the rep they are not offering an FTP download at this time. I'll contact sales and ask for physical media, but in the past it has usually been a couple weeks after release before we could get our hands on that.

We're on Passport Advantage too. So I would be interested in hearing about your download experience.

Well, that Direct Download thing does not work real well for me. I'm limited to only a single connection (I assume it works similar to BitTorrent with the multiple connection thing). I'm 100% sure this is a limitation established by my company. Also, I think my company scans HTTP traffic as it's coming in, which probably slows things down further.

We'll see if the downloaded stuff actually works later. Hopefully sometime tomorrow.

My download completed overnight. RAD 7 installed without any errors, which is refreshing. I'm now going to attempt to go through the JSF tutorial in RAD 7 with WAS 6.1 and see if I can avoid all the problems I had trying to do it in RAD 6.

I downloaded the software using Download Director. It took more than 3 hours to download the 6.7 GB files.
