Other than the options of using RAD or WAS community edition, is there any Eclipse 3.3 plugins for WAS 6.1? Did a google but couldn't find any.

Chengwei,
The community edition is Eclipse with a WAS plugin pre-installed.

Thanks Jeanne for the quick reply. Happy New Year!

Just wondering, if there would be any major surprises/differences when I use the community edition to develop but eventually deploy on a WAS 6.1?

It's not exactly the same, but I wouldn't expect any major surprises. Maybe some small ones . I haven't used community edition personally. My opinion is based on the fact that is being provided by IBM.

I hope so too. Downloaded the WASCE 2.0 but couldn't start it up. Going to seek help in the IBM forum.

Cheers!

Actually, WASCE and WAS 6.1 have very little in common. WASCE is just an enhanced version of Apache Geronimo, just as IBM HTTP Server is just an enhanced version of Apache HTTP Server. The commercial WAS 6.1 is a completely different animal.

I would definitely not recommend developing for WASCE and then deploying to WAS 6.1.

Regarding development tools, companies who buy WAS 6.1 generally make a deal with IBM to throw in developer licenses to RAD, usually at a reduced price. If you're developing for a client who has purchased WAS 6.1, you may want to inquire if they have licenses to RAD that you can use for the development work.

The latest version of the WTP (Web tools Platform) is supposed to be able to deploy to WAS 6.0, but not 6.1. I tried telling Eclipse my WAS 6.1 was a WAS 6.0 installation, but that didn't work. There may be a way to work around it, though. I didn't spend a lot of time trying as I have access to a RAD license was just trying out of curiosity.
