Has anyone used the new IBM Rational Rapid Developer (RRD) product?
How about Rational XDE with Websphere Studio?
I need to make some recommendations on development tools for my company so I'm interested in some feedback. I've been happy with WSAD except for its UML modelling, which is clearly lacking. Rational XDE sounds like a good fit for our use. RRD sounds like an interesting product, but I'm afraid of getting locked into a proprietary development system. Also we don't do much web development mostly network client/server J2EE applications and RRD sounds very web-centric. Let me know what you think.
