Removed function
X X _ _ _ JavaServer™ Faces (JSF) tooling support for JWL Client Data is removed. This feature was deprecated in V7.0.

There will be no replacement functionality in the tooling nor in the JSF component library.
X X _ _ _ Java™ Visual Editor (JVE ), including the data bindings capability, is removed.
Note: The Java Visual Editor is available and stabilized starting with version 7.5.2 (see Stabilized function below). However, the data bindings capability remains removed.
X X _ _ _ Rational ClearCase® LT is not included in V7.5.
X X Web Services DADX tooling and the Web Service Object Runtime Framework (WORF) are removed in V7.5. The tooling was used to generate service artifacts for WORF.
X X DB Beans are removed in 7.5.
X X Web Services SOAP UDF is removed in V7.5.
X X When initially released, we will not have the same platform coverage for Rational Agent Controller for the remote profiling of WebSphere Application Server v7.0 applications that we had in previous releases; you will only be able to profile applications on Windows, and Linux®-Intel®. For more information, see http://www.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=2042&uid=swg27013420.
X X (Portal) EIS SDO mediators for SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel support in portlets.
X X (Server tools) WebSphere Application Server V5.1 server support is removed in V7.5.

You must move up to use the WebSphere Application Server V6, V6.1 or V7 server support. There is a runtime target migrator to help you migrate any V5.1 runtime target on your projects to a supported runtime.
X X _ (Server tools) Managed network deployment (ND) server support is removed in V7.5.

You can use the unmanaged ND server or Base server to develop applications. A typical use case in which you would use the ND server for development is for easily setting server configurations in all development computers. (For example, setting a data source.). In these cases, you can use the enhanced EAR configuration support in order to complete development environment setup..
X X (Struts) Tool support for creating new Struts 1.1 projects or adding a Sruts 1.1 runtime to an existing project is removed in V7.5.

Existing Struts 1.1 projects are still supported by the tools.
X X (Web RAD) JDBC mediator consumption with JSTL is removed in V7.5.
X X _ (Web services) Web Services Quality of Service and Profile Compliance is removed in V7.5 and replaced by the Service Policies preferences.
X X _ (Web services) Web Services command line tools (WSDL2Client, WSDL2Client13, WSDL2WebService, WSDL2WebService13, Bean2WebService and Bean2WebService13) only support WebSphere V6 and V6.1 for J2EE 1.4 and J2EE 1.3
_ X X X _ Rational XDE™ for Java model and code imports were removed. Rational XDE reached End of Service on September 30, 2007.

To perform migrations from Rational XDE artifacts, use an earlier version of a product, such as Rational Software Architect, Version 7.0.0.x or Rational Systems Developer, Version 7.0.5.x. Models that result from importing with an earlier version of the products are compatible with version 7.5 products.
_ _ _ _ X Rational XDE for Visual Studio C# model and code imports were removed. Rational XDE reached End of Service on September 30, 2007.

To perform migrations from Rational XDE artifacts, use an earlier version of a product, such as Rational Modeling Extension for Microsoft .NET, Version 7.0.0.x, or Version 7.0.5.x. Models that result from importing with an earlier version of the products are compatible with version 7.5 of the product.

X X _ _ SDO Domino mediator
X X _ _ _ _ (Web services) The Web Services command line tools (WSDL2Client, WSDL2Client13, WSDL2WebService, WSDL2WebService13, Bean2WebService, Bean2WebService13, UDDIPublish, UDDIPublish13, UDDIUnpublish, and UDDIUnpublish13) only support WebSphere Application Server V6 and V6.1 for J2EE 1.4 and J2EE 1.3.

The command line tools are replaced by the wsant framework.
_ X _ _ UML-to-EJB (2.1) transformation is deprecated and might be removed in a future release.

Continue to work your existing projects with the UML-to-EJB (2.1) transformation, but base your new projects on EJB 3.0 and use the new bidirectional EJB 3.0 transformation feature.
X X _ _ EJB 2.1 graphical code editing using UML notations is deprecated and might be removed in a future release.

Continue to work your existing EJB 2.1 projects with the deprecated feature, but base your new projects on EJB 3.0 and use the new EJB 3.0 graphical code editing feature.
_ X X X XSLT-based UML model reporting is deprecated and might be removed in a future release.

Adopt BIRT-based model reporting for all new report development. If you have customized XSLT report definitions, begin to re-implement those designs using the BIRT-based capability.
X X _ _ Web Site Navigation is a tool used to define the hierarchical structure of a web site and automatically add appropriate navigation elements to Web pages. Web Site Navigation is deprecated and will be removed in a future release.

Web Site Navigation elements will need to be removed from Web pages and page templates and replaced with manually defined navigation elements. Static and dynamic page templates may be used to add common navigation elements to a set of pages.
X X Static analysis tooling in Test and Performance Tools (TPTP) plugins have been removed and replaced with the Rational Software Analyzer component

In version 7.5, the TPTP static analysis plugins have been removed. These plugins have the following form:

org.eclipse.tptp.platform.analysis.codereview.java*

The functionality in these plugins are replaced by the Rational Software Analyzer component in version 7.5.x. This component is installed by selecting the Application analysis and developer test > Code review feature when you install or if you modify an installation.

The new plugins have the following form:

com.ibm.rsaz.analysis.codereview.java*

Generally, there is a direct mapping between the previous and new APIs.
X X The following monitoring and profiling tooling is deprecated as of version 7.5.5:
  • Managed Agent Explorer
  • Monitoring and managing an application using Common Base Events and JMX
  • Application Response Measurement (ARM)
X X (Starting in version 7.5.5.4)
Support for DB2 7.2 is deprecated.
DB2 7.2 is no longer supported by IBM, and therefore it might not be possible to provide support in Rational Application Developer for problems related to DB2 7.2.database support.



Stabilized functions will not be further enhanced in any future releases.
