IBM Introduces New Rational Software Tools
IBM Introduces New Rational Software Tools

(May 22, 2003) - In its first product introduction since becoming part of IBM, IBM Rational has added two new products and enhancements to its integrated software development platform. Rational's new cross-platform solutions, scheduled to be available in June, help software development teams collaboratively develop business applications and software products and systems.

IBM's new products include Rational Rapid Developer, an architected rapid application development (ARAD) environment that makes it easier for software developers to build scalable, enterprise-class J2EE business applications. It offers a visual, model-driven development environment that automates development of the vast majority of code.

Rational expands its "Extended Development Experience" for testers and developers with a new solution, IBM Rational XDE® Tester, and with enhancements to IBM Rational XDE Developer. IBM Rational's "Extended Development Experience" tightly integrates the IBM Rational XDE product family into IBM WebSphere Studio, Eclipse, and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. Rational XDE Tester, which is based on Eclipse and runs inside IBM WebSphere Studio 5.0 and Eclipse 2.0, is a new test automation solution that provides functional testing of Java clients and Web-based applications.

IBM Rational XDE Developer Plus, formerly Rational XDE Professional Plus, has a new debugging capability called visual trace that enables users to see application runtime errors and create associated UML models. This edition of Rational XDE seamlessly integrates with Rational PurifyPlus and allows developers to work in supported versions of Java, Visual C#, and Visual Basic .NET.

IBM has enhanced the Rational Unified Process - Rational's process for software development - to make it more configurable for a broader audience. This improved configurability means that organizations can optimize the Rational Unified Process to meet the particular needs of their development organization, each individual project, and each member of the development team.

In addition to these solutions, IBM Rational has released the latest version of IBM Rational Suite, including its IBM Rational ClearCase software configuration management solution. Additional information on the new solutions is available at the IBM Rational Website.

BTW, IIRC XDE Tester contains the functionality formerly marketed as RobotJ. Dunno what else is in there ...
