Attend our WebSphere Application Server (WAS) V8.5.Next Beta, Rational Application Developer (RAD) v9.0 Beta and WAS Developer Tools (WDT) for Eclipse V9.0 Beta Feature Focus Week sessions

What are Feature Focus Weeks?

Feature Focus Weeks will periodically highlight the key features available to you in the Beta deliverable. They will start with a thread on the forum providing an overview of a new and/or enhanced feature. As you experiment with the feature during the next several days, we hope that you will reply to the thread with your comments and questions. We have many architects, designers, engineers, testers, information developers, and user experience professionals monitoring the forum and eager to discuss new features, learn about your experiences with the product, and answer your questions. Each Feature Focus Week will culminate in a session where registered participants will be able to
call in for an open discussion about the feature.
