You might sometimes need to test a web application on an i5/OS WAS instance. If you find it too much of a hassle to export your project as an EAR or WAR file, upload the file to the remote server, then install the application (and repeat the process again when you make a change!) – or if you just don’t want the overhead of running WAS locally – consider configuring your remote server within the IDE so you can use it just like a test environment.

In case the rumor mill hasn’t made it to you yet, or you missed Bob Cancilla’s aritcle, WDSC (and the WDSC development team) are now part of the IBM Rational division.
My own opinion is that this is a good move. It always seemed a bit awkward being part of a runtime division of IBM (WebSphere) as opposed to the tools division (Rational). Especially when we build WDSC on top of existing Rational products.
I’d also like to give a big welcome to everyone visiting the blog. This is a great opportunity for users and developers to collaborate and share ideas on the many features that makes WDSC tick.
My name is Adam Schwabe, and I’m a part of the small team of Information Developers that puts together the documentation and help material that will hopefully assist you in using WDSC. Specifically, we take care of anything that resides under that “Help” menu in WDSC. This including help topics, technical manuals, tutorials, samples, programming language support, and tours.
Personally, I’m interested in usability, user interface design, blogging, podcasting, and new media trends on the Net. I’m excited to see how this blog will help us interact with and receive more insight from you, the users.
