Servlet wizard plugin for Eclipse?

Does anyone use a plugin to create servlets and beans using eclipse?
I have installed Lomboz and I think it does some nice things as far as creating and deploying jsp's, but I haven't found a way to create and deploy servlets and beans. Does lomboz support this? Are there any plugins that cover jsp, servlet and bean creation and deployment?
I feel like I'm missing something... All these plugins available and I can't find what I need.

Some of these are dependent on the Application Server but you should be able to find what you need here
As far as Lomboz, I have just installed it myself, and I think it does have what you need. There are installation instruction in PDF format on their documents page. YOU MUST USE THEM. They help you set up Eclipse to use the plugin correctly. That way you can get to all the wizards.
The only thing I didn't like about Lomboz, or maybe it is Eclipse, I couldn't figure out how to add a library (jar file) to the project to use in my JSP pages.
Have any suggestions?

I followed the installation doc when I installed lomboz, and I believe everything is installed correctly. The specific problem I see is that when I click on New- I see Lomboz JSP Wizard and Lomboz HTML Wizard along with J2EE container and some ejb wizards. What I don't see is a servlet wizard or a bean wizard. Do you have anything similar to a servlet wizard in lomboz?
I just want the equivelant of a NetBeans New Servlet feature- a standard http servlet template.

After reading your post, I think you are right. I looked at mine and I don't have a Servlet wizard either.
It would be nice to have the feature. As long as it wrote my Web.xml file also. I always end up with typos in that file that cause things to fail. And it's always the last thing I check.

Hopefully that will be coming soon. I hope it becomes part of the Lomboz plugin and not some other third party plugin. I think too many plugins that do one particular thing make Eclipse more complex than it really needs to be.
