By: MikeC711 Sat, 19 Jan 2013 01:12:32 +0000 Excellent article. Thanks. One cosmetic point is that WebSphere is mis-spelled in that last paragraph of the article (functional WebSphere)

Liberty Profile is free for development – I *think* it might be use in production too, with no IBM Support obviously.
Maquetta is also an IBM sponsored tool, in SaaS mode (web based) to visually build a HTML5 application. Maquetta is more for web based application where Worklight is oriented towards mobile applications

True, the Worklight version of it is definitely better (in this and many other respects), but it is only free for evaluation purposes, whereas the WebSphere 8.5 Liberty profile plugin seems to be free even for true development work.

For the moment I think the best (and only?) free choice in this regard is not any Eclipse plugin but the browser based Maqetta Designer.

Curiously IBM is also involved with that particular drag-and-drop solution…

I never tried the Rich Page Editor. More precisely, I am using the version that come with IBM Worklight (available from Eclipse Market Place) and I don’t have this problem.
I already received a similar error message and finally re-installed my Eclipse environment and plugins from scratch.
Good Luck 😉

I was very glad to find your post as there are still not many Mac friends out there using this stuff, and I am right now trying to evaluate the same Eclipse plugin package for developing an User Interface in a web based mobile app. Hence my following my question:

Does the Rich Page Editor that comes in it work for you?

(It doesn’t work on my Mac in spite of complying, AFAIK, with its requirements on the OS X and Java version, i.e. I have Lion with JRE 1.6.0_33.

The specific problem I find is that I get “Page load failed with error: Could not connect to the server.” when I do step 3 of “20.3.2 Creating the web page” in the RAD doc

Therefore I can only drag and drop the Dojo widgets from the palette onto the source code pane but not onto the design pane which remains totally blank.)

Looking forward also to your next blog entry on using REST,
