IBM® currently plans to deliver a release of IBM Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® Software and IBM Rational Application Developer Standard Edition for WebSphere Software that will support WebSphere Application Server V8.0 and IBM Workload Deployer V3.0. IBM intends for IBM Rational Application Developer to provide the capability to accelerate development of higher quality applications for Web 2.0, agile, service-oriented architecture (SOA), OSGi, and cloud computing, for testing and deployment to WebSphere Application Server V8.0, providing an integrated development and runtime environment.

IBM also intends for IBM Rational Application Developer to deliver support to accelerate development of high-quality software applications for Workload Deployer V3.0 that will allow developers to build traditional WebSphere Application Server application assets, and compose these assets into a cloud application for deployment and testing on IBM Workload Deployer V3.0. This capability will allow developers to:

  • Define and interact with server configurations for IBM Workload Deployer appliances
  • Compose workspace application projects into IBM Workload Deployer cloud applications
  • Easily run and re-publish cloud applications directly from the workspace onto IBM Workload Deployer appliances
