IBM recently announced the latest version of WebSphere Development Studio Client (WDSc), version 7.0. Unfortunately, IBM is leaving out Screen Designer and Application Diagram in the Standard Edition, and that has a lot of programmers hopping mad – not that I can blame them. Why should users have to pay for the Advanced Edition? It took a long time and a lot of patience for programmers to get the feel of WDSc and just when they’re starting to reap the benefits, IBM pulls the rug out from under them. Should they suck it up and shoot for the Advanced Edition, or should they call it quits and go back to their faithful green screens?
