Has anyone tried the beta version Websphere studio application developer -- ie that which will replace Visual Age? And also, any comments on the beta version that will replace websphere studio -- i.e. for building gui/jsp etc. Thanks.
Well, I've been using the beta for about six months now (one of the benefits of being an IBMer) and I must say I like it a lot. It's a good melding of VA-J and the "classic" WebSphere Studio. I like the different project types and perspectives for most things, although I find moving between perspectives to work on EJB's and Web pages & Servlets a bit cumbersome at times. I've gotten pretty used to team programming with it, and I must say it's easier for people to grasp than the team programming paradigm in VA-J. That's probably because it's basically CVS, which many people have already experienced at one time or another. There are still lots of odd little bugs and annoyances, but I have gotten pretty used to it and still like it.
