I know WebSphere integration is planned for Demetra, so here's my really long list of features I wish to see:
- Do everything WSAD/RSDP does, so I can dump them.
That's it. Really long, eh? Okay, I'll expand a little: IDEA needs to take care of server (and test environments) configuration and deployment, even if WSAD has to be installed for that. I want to be able to create a new server, select the runtime environment, edit the server configuration, generate the deployment code, and run the server.
I won't get much into this, really -- if you want to be serious about WebSphere integration, you need to use WSAD for a while, and make sure IDEA is an apt replacement. Currently you just -can't- develop to WebSphere without WSAD, and if IDEA could help me stop using them, it would be great.
Again, I don't even mind if IDEA requires me to have WSAD installed to make use of the bundled runtime environments. Any company stupid enough to use WebSphere gets free WSAD licenses anyway.
