RAD 6 download

Hi Ranchers,
I want to download trial version for RAD 6 but all the links seem to redirect to download page for "RAD V7.0". Does this mean RAD 6 is no more available for trial download?

I can't speak for IBM, but I would imagine that after releasing IBM's Rational Application Developer 7, their main goal and focus is to promote that produce.

Why would you want to download a trial of an earlier, inferior version, anyways?

The IBM advantage site still has it for download, if you are working with a partner.

Good luck!

Hi Cameron,
I don't have any problem with using RAD 7. Only because IBM exams 256/257 mention RAD 6?

RAD 7 supports J2EE 1.4 as does RAD 6. So they are very similar from a testing point of view.
