Hi,

I'd like to learn IBM WebSphere(specially WSAD) and get certified. I saw the book comes with a trial version. That 'trial version', what is it? Software expires after 30 or 60 days? Limited to 1 cpu? Can someone give me more details about it? Thanks,

Francois,

I consider this book a really good one. Am happy to have it on my shelf.
You know that it is about 5.0 version. Newest version is 6.0 and there is quite a lot new stuff for developers (rational integration)?
You can download newest version from the ibm site. When evaluation period is expired, you download new version. This should be possible, but I am not 100% sure.
In any case you need a dsl connection, because download is big one.
If I remember right, the version which comes with the book is 5.12, which is good, because there are quite a few usefull features with this dot release (tools for webservices and jsf)

Hi Axel,

I'll check IBM's website and get the latest version. If I remember, evaluation is for 30 or 60 days. That's not very long. That's why I wanted to buy the book. It comes with a 'trial version'. Not sure if the trial version is like the download version: 30 or 60 days then it expires OR is it limited to 1 cpu with no expiration date. Thanks for your info..

I think its with expiration period.
But as far as I know you can simply install new version, when expiration period is over.
Not sure. I am working for a business partner.
If you have doubts, you might ask IBM of your country.
They should be interested in people learning their stuff.
