New and enhanced capabilities for cloud, mobile and general distributed platforms development
IBM® Rational® Application Developer for WebSphere® V9.1.1 (RAD) provides new and enhanced capabilities for cloud and hybrid mobile development, and for static code analysis
After setting the stage in prior versions by introducing new integrations with Maven, JQuery, Git, and Apache Cordova, RAD 9.1.1 is now ready to leverage those and many other technologies in the cloud – specifically, in the IBM Bluemix development cloud environment, and taking advantage of IBM DevOps Services – with its new integration of Bluemix Tools for Eclipse
9.1.1 also introduces a major update to RAD’s static analysis capabilities including the introduction of over 250 additional analysis rules, and extensive code metrics including both basic (such as line and class counts, comment-to-code ratio) and sophisticated (code complexity and cohesion measures) analyses
And continuing its tradition of providing optimized tooling support for the latest WebSphere Application Server (WAS), Liberty Profile, and WebSphere Portal runtimes, RAD 9.1.1 introduces several updates to Portal development tools
