Prabhat,
RAD comes with embedded WebSphere and has many proprietary plugins. Whether to choose it or Eclipse depends on your needs. Better to start with needs than choose a tool.

means when we use RAD Tool then we have to use

Rational ClearCase for Checkin-chekout our files to the Dev or any Stream.

and also we have to use IBM WhbSphere only right ?

Jeanne forgot the other major aspect.

Eclipse is free to download and use whereas if you want to use RAD for commercial purpose, You need to spend Money.

No, it works perfectly well with CVS. And it's based on Eclipse so you should be able to use Eclipse plugins in it. And if you avoid using Websphere-specific extensions, the EARs it generates should be usable in any JEE container.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
