I got an email this week from IBM letting me know that IBM is hosting an open beta for Rational Application Developer v7.5. You'll need an IBM id to download it. Finally, we have support for JEE5 and EJB 3.0!!
From the email, this version includes:
- Increased support for iterative development for JEE5 applications that take advantage of the annotation based programming model, with enhanced support for creation, validation, refactoring, and deletion of artifacts
- Enterprise Information System (EIS) Adapters provide tooling for JD Edwards, Oracle, SAP, Siebel and PeopleSoft
- Enhanced capabilities to deliver modern applications in emerging programming models using tools that help create EJB 3.0, JPA, Web Services with JAX-WS 2.0/JAX-B 2.0 and reliable secure profile applications
- The latest standards, such as JEE5, WS-I BP1.2/2.0, RSP 1.0, WS-Policy Assertions for Web Services, WS-Reliable Messaging, WS-Addressing, MTOM, SOAP 1.2, WS-Secure Conversation and SIP (JSR 289)
I have yet to download this myself, but when time avails itself I'll investigate and blog accordingly.
