Hi we have to move our environment from version 5.1 to 6.1, and in accordance WSAD or so to RAD 7.0 which turned out to be RSA 7 as it includes both RAD and RSM. Installation went via a preconfigured script made available by our company's j2ee development department, result: "INSTALLATION WAS SUCCESSFUL" However after installation I don't see the test server possibilities as I'm used to in WSAD 5.1.2. No server perspective, No server views, nada nothing. Am I overlooking something, have things changed? Is the server now starting as a Windows Server? Really I'm lost. Can't see the forest through the woods. My colleague found that after importing some projects some features were enabled, but still he cant start the server.
Please Help!!!

With RSA, many of the perspectives are hidden. There's a little checkbox at the bottom when you go to open a perspective that says "Show All." When you click that, the Web and J2EE perspectives will appear as openable options.

As for the Server perspective, I think that went out with IRAD 6. What you have now is a view, which is standard in the web perspective, but of course, can be added to any other perspective.

If you have a web resource, like a JSP, just right-click and select "Run On Server". When you do, you will be taken through the server configuration windows, and when you are done, the test server will start.

It's a little intimidating at first, but the deeper you get into it, the more you'll find similarities to WSAD 5, as opposed to difference.

Keep posting questions and we'll try to help out - new topics in new threads, preferably.

Kind regards,
