It's interesting how much Justin is tracking the Lotus Workplace story.  It seems from his latest postings that he's had the opportunity to view the Lotus strategy roadshow that is making its way through Australia.  He's captured some good stuff about the story, as well as how customers will get there, in his two posts.
Yesterday, I learned from Beverly DeWitt (WebSphere Studio product manager) that WebSphere Studio Application Developer/Site Developer 5.1, which hit general availability on August 1, has some of the anticipated "RAD for J2EE" features .  For example:

  • Web Site Designer (a graphical hierarchy/page management interface)
  • a new tools palette that you drag/drop components
  • free-layout mode (x-y type of object placement)
  • enhanced attributes views
  • Quick Edit view (like Domino Designer's programmer's pane)
  • easier to use project navigator (like Domino Designer)
As Justin reported, there is still more to come.  I should probably blog about this on lotus.com/weblog .....
