What are the key tasks you are trying to perform with the WebSphere Application Server Toolkit. Is it preparation for deployment?
Many great packaging tools come with Eclipse, and Eclipse also has a great update tool that allows you to see what other plugins might be available. It might we worth the cost of a download to install the latest version of Eclipse, and hunt around the update tool and see if there are any neat plugins that might make your life easier.
Again, what are the key tasks you are trying to perform. Maybe someone knows of a tool that will hit your sweet spot?

1) new WTP does not deploy to websphere - this is known problem
2) I need IDE to hot deploy EAR projects into WAS. I also will start WAS from eclipse - not remote debug
MyEclipse blue works fine, but I've been using myeclipse for 5 years and I would like to try something else (They have lately really poor quality.....).
IBM AST (Eclipse 3.2 WTP + WAS plugins) is just great, but there is no update to Eclipse 3.4 - I've tried it. I've also tried Rational updater.
I've also searched for another tools on IBM partner page but there is only RAD (for WAS 4.x-7.x) and AST (for WAS 4.x-6.x - maximum Eclipse 3.2, I did not find anything for Eclipse 3.4)
I need tool (AST would be great, but I cannot find new version) based on Eclipse 3.4 to hot deploy EAR project into WAS running directly in eclipse (not remote debug)
