Team developers can now do all of their work in their individual
workbenches, and then periodically feed changes to a "team stream." This
model allows individual developers to work on a team project, share their
work with others as changes are made, and access the work of other
developers as the project evolves. At any time, developers can update
their workbenches by retrieving the changes that have been made to the
team stream or by submitting changes to the team stream.

You can create a simple query using the SQL wizard, or you can use the SQL query builder that supports a wider range of statements.
The RSC is a visual tool used to define the mapping between one or more relational tables and an XML document. It lets you create, browse, or import database schemas. You can explore, import, design, and query databases, working with either a local copy of an already deployed design, or creating an entirely new design to meet your requirements

WebSphere Studio Application Developer is the next generation product for VisualAge for Java based on the WebSphere Studio Workbench. It is an advanced development environment for building, testing, and deploying J2EE applications. WebSphere Studio Application Developer takes many popular functions of VisualAge for Java and WebSphere Studio to make a robust application development environment that provides excellent support for building, testing, and deploying both server-side (Servelets, JavaBean, EJBs) and client-side (HTML, JSPs) components to meet all your e-business application needs.
WebSphere Studio Application Developer, Integration Edition provides powerful graphical tooling for the creation and customization of application adapters. It is based on the WebSphere Studio Workbench and plugs into WebSphere Studio Application Developer, extending the function of this advanced development environment.
