Pinned topic RDp 8.5 and RAD SE 8.0.3

‏2012-08-07T14:25:28Z |
Hello,
we have some licences for Rational Product ID 5733-RDD. This product is the combination of
Rational Developer for Power 8.x.x and Rational Application Developer Standard Edition 8.x.x.

Now that there is RDp 8.5 out, I tried to install it together with RAD SE 8.0.3.
It is not possible because RAD SE 8.0.3 is not compatible with RDp 8.5.

So, there is my question: Is there or will there be a new version of RAD SE 8.5?

Thank you

    There is no RAD SE 8.5.

    In V8.5 of 5733-RDD, it has been replaced by WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse with Web Development Extension for Power Systems Software V8.5.

    Hi Eric,
    thank you for the answer.

    Is there a download link for these replacement softwares? Note that I have already RDp 8.5.

    Thank you

    I think you can only get them from Passport Advantage or ESS.

    Hello again,
    finally we optained the access for Passport Advantage...

    But, the software is not available neither at Passport Advantage nor ESS.
    As we have software subscription for product id 5733-RDD, actually we are
    not able to get the version 8.5 of this product.
    Is there something wrong with versione 8.5?

    Thanks

    Do you know if you are still under maintenance for the product? Make sure you are looking for the product "Rational Power Tools for IBM i"
    http://www-01.ibm.com/software/awdtools/rdproductline/compare.html

    RAD 8.5 is out and I have it installed with RDp 8.5. The both use Eclipse 3.6, where the 8.0x series uses Eclipse 3.4. Products must use the same Eclipse version in order to shell share. A good rule of thumb: look at the minor version number (ie. 8.5. If they are the same, they generally will be compatible in the same shell.

    Hello Liberhominus,
    thanks for your replay.
    RAD is not the same as RAD SE. RAD SE is a lightweight version of RAD and therefore has a different licence key (and price...).
    The problem is that the Power Tools for i package has changed as of version 8.5.
    It no longer is made of RDp and RAD SE, as is was for 8.0.
    Now it is made of RDp and "WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse with Web Development Extension for Power Systems Software". Yes, it has this name....
    And "WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse with Web Development Extension for Power Systems Software" is not available.

    Anyway, my sales representative is asking IBM/Rational since september and he gets crazy because it seems that even at IBM no one knows about this package....
    Maybe that I make big confusion...
    IBM only told me to contact my sales representative.

    Bye
