hi,
I am planning to work on Websphere Portal 5.0 toolkit. But to work with it it needs WSAD 5.0.1.Now I already have WSAD 5.0 on my machine . Now to update from WSAD5.0 to WSAD5.0.1 it takes somewhere around 230 MB. Now anybody can please explain how can a normal user who wants to work in his house with these tools should update such a huge configuration .Or is there any other way to do it.Its really uncomfortable to update such a huge configuration.
Thx,
Siddharth

Well, the way I see it is use high-speed internet or burn a CD somewhere you can get high-speed internet. There really isn't a better way.

Yes Sir,
It's pretty big all right. But that's because it's undoubtedly the best IDE around. I am not convinced that WebSphere Studio Application Developer is for the normal user. In fact, I think it is better suited to the Enterprise Developer, and that person is probably used to dealing with the complexity of installing and updating such tooling.
I have been using WebSphere Studio since it first came out, and I see vast improvements with every release. Of course your mileage may vary. I am particularly happy with the new Web Services features, but that's just me. Wait till you get around to installing version 5.1 or 5.1.1 ad you will quickly see that the hardware requirements alone are quite formidable. Some people will settle for Eclipse, but I need most of the features and functionality the WebSphere Studio offers. Anyway, that's my two cents worth.
