I am using WSAD 5.1.0 to develop an application that is going to run on a WAS 5 server. The WAS 5 server is using JVM 1.4.1. The Websphere Test Environment (WTE) in WSAD is using JVM 1.3.1. Is there a way to change the JVM used by the WTE?

I tried using Window / Preferences / Java / Installed JREs to add a JRE pointing to my local 1.4 JRE directory, but System.getProperty("java.version") still reports 1.3.1. What did this change if it was not the WTE?

Thanks,
Mark

Mark,
How did you get WAS 5 to use Java 1.4? WAS 5 and WSAD 5.1 support Java 1.3. WAS 5.2 and WSAD 5.1.2 support Java 1.4. There isn't any supported way to change the server JVM is WSAD without upgrading.

Thanks for the information. I was mistaken. We are running WebSphere Platform 5.1 [BASE 5.1.0.5 cf50427.04] [ND 5.1.0 b0344.02] [JDK 1.4.1.1 jdk0409.03]. I will at least upgrade to WSAD 5.1.2.

Is it correct that IBM has renamed WSAD 6 to Rational Application Developer? Have you worked with it yet? Does it have worthwhile new features? If you know of a web page with an indepenant review, please post it.

Thanks again,
Mark

Yes, WSAD has been renamed to RAD. I haven't used it yet. I have used Eclipse 3.0 (which RAD 6 is based on.) The differences in the java editor are quite pronounced. And the new look is pretty cool too! It also uses a new generation of standard plugin technology. So there are some new good plugins. For RAD itself, the biggest "new feature" is J2EE 1.4 support.

To date, all the reviews I've seen are from IBM. Not quite independent

Sean Sullivan has been using RAD/WAS 6. If you do a search for his posts in our IBM/WebSphere forum, you will see some of his experiences. (keeping in mind of course that people only post problems, not things they are happy with)
