I’m using Eclipse for quite a long time. No doubt eclipse is one of the best IDEs available today.
But I think J2EE development was never easy with eclipse. Recently I
downloaded MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench and all my problems were
solved. MyEclipse is a plugin to eclipse for developing and deploying
J2EE applications. It has some very good features which really ease the
The main feature I found very useful is configuring the app servers in eclipse for deployment of the applications. It provides the connectors for most of the app servers as Tomcat, JBoss, Websphere, Weblogic. The other important features are CSS, XML, JSP, SQL editor, support for Struts, XDoclet, Hibernate, EJB. Also provides native JSP debugging as well as servlet debugging. Looking at these features one can easily say that MyEclipse is the tool for easy and rapid J2EE application development.
