Features and benefits
IBM® Rational® Professional Bundle includes all of the desktop tools your enterprise needs to design, construct and test J2EE/Portal/Service-oriented applications on both Windows and Linux, in a single purchase vehicle with one maintenance contract to manage. This bundle enables practitioners to easily use any tool as their role changes or as they need to perform new tasks. It provides the greatest flexibility for the individual practitioner to install and use the tool(s) they need to do their job. The tools in IBM Rational Professional Bundle are architected for ease of adoption, since most tools are installed inside an Eclipse-based application shell. It also includes a 5 virtual user performance testing pack.
IBM Rational Professional Bundle drives application development that is optimized for WebSphere and DB2 software. It provides strong support for developing for other J2EE- technology platforms, as well. It supports geographically distributed teams through a flexible, floating license model. Small, centrally-located teams can take advantage of the authorized user license model.
