Over the past week, and particularly this past weekend, a few new downloads made their way through our tweet stream and Facebook wall. Seeing as these were posted during typically 'off' hours for most of us, we thought it would be of some benefit to highlight those recent releases here, to raise visibility in the case that you may have missed and need one or more of these downloads:

Develop Multilingual portlets with Rational Application Developer- This article explains how to use ResourceBundle classes for multilingual portlet development using IBM Rational Application Developer for IBM WebSphere Portal. IBM® WebSphere® Portal supports more than 30 languages for different locations. Various international organizations provide their portals for use in different countries or regions through multilingual Web sites. In this context, the portal concurrently serves portal views in the users preferred language to a large numbers of users. WebSphere portal supports portlets displayed in different languages. If a requested language is not supported, the portal attempts to match the user's language preference.
This article explains how to develop multilingual portlets using IBM® Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere Software v9 (you can use v7.5 or higher to follow the steps in this article). Code snippets to incorporate multilingual portlets using ResourceBundle are provided in the

This three-part tutorial walks you through building a multi-tier web application from scratch, using IBM® Rational® Application Developer, the Java Persistence API (JPA), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), REST web services, and — for a rich Web 2.0 front end — the Dojo Toolkit. You'll end up with a fully functioning web application that displays data in a table that users can edit by double-clicking any cell.
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 1: Build the database- The application architecture uses REST services to decouple the UI from the server, and it uses EJBs and JPA to provide a correctly tiered enterprise application. Some of these layers are unnecessary for the sample application, but the intent is to provide a well-architected example that can be scaled for a more challenging problem space. The high-level steps the tutorial follows are:
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 2: Build the application tier- In part two of this three-part tutorial, learn how to use IBM Rational Application Developer and IBM Bluemix to rapidly build and host a multi-tier Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) app. Find out how you can save time in each stage: creating the data model and database, generating the data access code using the Java Persistence API (JPA), writing the Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) and web services, and using Dojo to create a rich web UI for viewing and modifying the data. When the application is complete, you'll deploy it to IBM Bluemix, the IBM Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Rapidly build a rich three-tier web app, Part 3: Create a rich web UI- In Part 1 you created a database on IBM Bluemix, connected to it from Rational Application Developer, and populated it with sample data. In Part 2, you created the application tier consisting of an EJB for managing the business logic and Java Persistence API (JPA) entities for interacting with the database. Here in Part 3 you'll expose the EJB methods as REST web services and build an editable Dojo data grid for viewing and modifying the data. Finally, you'll deploy the application to IBM Bluemix.
Incremental publish & remote debug help accelerate IBM Bluemix app development using Rational Application Developer V9.5 Beta

The IBM Rational Application Developer v9.5 Beta bundles the latest version of the IBM Eclipse Tools for Bluemix which includes 4 new features and bug fixes.
With the new support for incremental publish and remote debug of applications, we now only need to publish the delta code changes instead of redeploying the entire application, significantly reducing the deployment time and making application development targeting Bluemix easier than ever.
To try the new features check out Cesar Orozco's blog post with all the steps you need in the Rational Community here: Incremental publish & remote debug help accelerate IBM Bluemix app development using Rational Application Developer V9.5 Beta
