Hi,

We are considering migration from Websphere6.0 to JBOSS for our application.
Is it possible to use RAD for developing applications on JBOSS? If so, could anyone please provide some information regarding the same.

Thanks,

You can surely use RAD with JBoss. Ultimately RAD is IDE build on top of Eclipse, provided you are not using IBM feaures.

So, where do you post the reasons you're moving to JBoss from WebSphere 6? It's not even like you're on a relic of a version. I'm curious.

You absolutely can use RAD to produce applications for JBoss. IBM's Rational Application Developer (IRAD) is a fully J2EE compliant rapid application development environment, and its spits out fully compliant J2EE EAR files.

One thing I would watch is what you put into the IBM Extensions. The IBM extensions are defined in the web and ejb modules in files that end in xmi (XML Metadata Interface format). I believe it is ibm-web-ext.xmi and ibm-ejb-ext.xmi Those things won't be coughed up by JBosss, but they will be ignored, so make sure you aren't depending upon any of those settings.

Happy JBoss.
