Hello Ranchers,
In our project we are planning to use RAD 7.5 as a IDE to develop the application. I heard the RAD 7.5 is not stable and it brings lot of issues while using it in development. I am new to RAD.
We will be using EJB 3.0 in our development. Can you please share your experience and suggestion on RAD 7.5? Also please suggest me any alternative for RAD 7.5.
The following technologies will be used in the project JEE 5.0, EJB 3.0, Spring, Hibernate 3.3 , Websphere 7.
Thanks in advance.
-Suresh

I have a very similar environment but I am using simple Eclipse IDE and basic ant (from apache) to develop, compile, and deploy applications to WAS 7.

With EJB3 lot of RAD features of configuring EJB and Resource references is no longer needed.

For debugging you can use java remote debugging features.

My biggest issue with IBM suite of products is there heavy consumption of CPU and Memory. I have a 4GB Core2 Duo and still my machine cries when I use RAD7.5 and WebSphere 7.0 together.
