    If you need tight integration I guess you have use RAD 8, which is not too bad if you are used to Eclipse (my case).

      Earlier this month, IBM WebSphere announced a new set of "WebSphere Application Server - Tools Edition" offerings that include tools along with the application server. The following link goes to the official announcement where you can read about the details.

      http://www.ibm.com/common/ssi/cgi-bin/ssialias?subtype=ca&infotype=an&appname=iSource&supplier=877&letternum=ENUSZP11-0528

      "The IBM WebSphere Application Server for Developers - Tools Edition for Eclipse provides users with a free, lightweight desktop development environment to build applications for WebSphere Application Server (V7.0 or V8.0). This bundle includes IBM WebSphere Application Server for Developers and introduces WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse, which is a subset of Rational Application Developer plugins that can easily be installed on top of your existing Eclipse environment, and provides the adapters you need to quickly deploy to a WebSphere Application Server environment. The bundle is offered as a no-charge download with an optionally purchased support package.

      The IBM WebSphere Application Server - Tools Edition and the IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment - Tools Edition bring together a production version of WebSphere Application Server (the leading open standards-based application foundation offering), and Rational Application Developer (the industry-leading and top rated development environment) to provide organizations with a complete solution to develop, deliver, and manage high-quality enterprise applications. The bundles include an unlimited number of licenses of Rational Application Developer and WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse to be used only in support of the production server for which it was purchased, providing the greatest flexibility to match the needs of any organization."

      The announcement letter states that electronic availability is planned for November 18, 2011. Search the IBM or developerWorks website on or after that date should reveal where and how to obtain IBM WebSphere Application Server for Developers - Tools Edition for Eclipse. Also check the featured WebSphere download page: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/websphere/downloads/

      Contact an IBM sales representative for more details about the IBM WebSphere Application Server - Tools Edition and IBM WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment - Tools Edition offerings.

        The Development Tools for WebSphere Application Server v7 and v8 are freely available for download.

        The tools are available for download through the Eclipse Marketplace. The tools are for use with Eclipse IDE v3.6.2 (Helios) which is available from Eclipse.org. After downloading and installing Eclipse, go under the Help menu and start the Eclipse Marketplace. Next, search with the keyword "WebSphere" and the Development Tools should be at the top of the results.

        For detailed step-by-step instructions about obtaining and installing these development tools, consult the Information Center for WebSphere Application Server Liberty Profile: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/beta/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.websphere.w4d.nd.multiplatform.doc%2Ftopics%2FwdtV85_overview.html
