So I don't have RAD. I, however, do have full version of websphere experience factory. When I install it, it asks for me to point to an installation of eclipse. Everything installs correctly, and I can create and deploy a portlet onto our was installation. My question is deployment and testing is easier in Windows because it comes with a full installation of eclipse and WAS. You can quickly deploy an application with testing from your local desktop. Is there a similar installation/configuration for Linux? I tried to see if I could download an "SDK WAS" version for linux, and there was none. From what I have been able to cull, WASCE is not WAS. Any pointers would help.
