I had an ear project created in RAD 6.0. I just migrated the same to RAD 7.0 using the option "Open existing projects". But when i created an instance of "Websphere 6.1 server" and went to add a project then no projects are available for me to add. Please help me in this.
I'd suggest you try a different approach to migrating the project to RAD 7. If you still have RAD 6 installed, bring up the project in RAD 6 and then save the EAR project and all its dependent projects into a single Project Interchange file. Then start RAD 7 and import the projects from the Project Interchange file.
Thanks for your suggestion Merill. I'm able to migrate my projects into RAD 7.0. However, i have a new problem for me. Earlier on RAD 6.0 i use to create multiple instances of Websphere v5.1 test environment on the same desktop by just changing the port numbers. This is required for us because multiple users will log on to the same desktop and run their application on a seperate instance of server. I'm not able to create multiple instances of Websphere V6.1 server. How do i create multiple instances of Websphere 6.1 server by just changing the port numbers ? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

With WAS 6.1, you have not just a "test environment", but a full-fledged WAS server on your system. In order to have more than one operating potentially at the same time, you must create different "profiles" on the server. You do this by executing the profile management tool. If you installed to the default location, below is probably the path to it:
Set up a profile for which none of the ports conflict with an existing profile. Once you have created a profile with this tool, you can then select that profile to use in RAD 7. When starting the new server wizard in RAD, select that profile from the drop-down box.

Thanks a lot for your directions Merill. I'm able to create multiple profiles and henceforth multiple instances. Thanks again.
