Our prototype project is tightly budgeted, so managers have said NO to JBuilder. We are using Tomcat/JBoss and looking for a good IDE with J2EE support. Eclipse and Netbeans.Somehow there seems to be a bias towards Eclipse...due to the more number of plugins available.....I guess.
Can I know which are the good plugins with J2EE dev work/debugging for Eclipse? (along with the eclipse version and the plugin version , please)
I found these plugins at the
http://www.eclipseplugincentral.com
site....

MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 9.1 (42)
EclipseUML Enterprise Edition 9.1 (16)
Clover 9.0 (5)
Exadel Struts Studio 8.8 (6)
Borland Together Edition for Eclipse 8.8 (10)
Lomboz 8.7 (9)
SWT Designer 8.6 (20)
Eclipse Profiler 8.5 (8)
Spindle, an Eclipse plug-in for Tapestry 7.8 (9)
Jigloo SWT/Swing GUI Builder

After being unsuccessful in getting Lomboz to work with eclipse, we are currently evaluating MyEclipse now...

I like Lomboz for rapidly building web applications.

Matthew,
Can you specify the Lomboz version, Eclipse version,OS and JDK version please...There seems to be a bug somewhere in Lomboz 2.1.2 and Eclipse 2.1.0 on Windows 2000. We couldn't get it to work!

I'm using Eclipse version 2.1.0 and Lomboz version 2.1.1 on Windows 2000.

I'm using Eclipse 3M5 with the Lomboz 3M5 plug-in and Tomcat 4.1.27. Use of Tomcat 4.1.29 did introduce a documented bug, which seemed to have a suggested fix, but not one I've been in the mood to figure out.

Thanks Matthew and Dirk,
I got it to working atlast ...with Dirk's configuration.
JDK1.4.2, Win 2000
Lomboz 3M5, Eclipse 3M5.
I couldn't find Lomboz 2.1.1 plugin from the site. Looks like the tutorial also uses similar config as Matthew's(2.1.0). There definitely seems to be something fishy with the lomboz versions and matching Eclipse versions. Quite a few others at the Lomboz discussion forums also seem to be having the same problem with the J2EE wizard project creation option.The dialog box just does not seem to close for the Finish button and also it creates incomplete web/ejb modules!

And now I'm using Eclipse 3M6 with Lomboz 3M6p1 and Tomcat 4.1.27, running on J2SE 1.4.2_03. Aside from a few mostly harmless bugs, things seem to be going well.
