RAD Technical Overview Training

This technical overview is intended for managers, project leaders and developers who are interested in using RAD to build their applications. IBM Rational Application Developer (RAD) is the new generation of Java application development environments built on the Eclipse open platform (www.eclipse.org). RAD has many new features that the traditional IDEs do not provide and implementing this development can be overwhelming without the proper knowledge base.

  • Introduction to RAD
  • J2EE Programming using RAD
  • Building an application with Ant
  • Using Ant
  • Automated Component Testing
  • Reviewing code using RAD
  • Team Development in RAD
  This course is intended for managers, project leaders and developers who are interested in using WSAD to build their applications.
  One day.
