Have heard so much praise about Eclipse, so today I decided to check it out and downloaded it with tomcat-plugin.

So far it looks nice but after doing some RTFM I still didn't manage to figure out something so simple as how to add .xml/.jsp/etc. files to project

OK, I figured out that I can add .jsp/.xml etc. to the project by copying them directly to the project-folder.

But is there a way to write these files with eclipse ? Kinda sucks to write them with <insert name of the ascii-editor here> and then saving them to the right directory manually.

You can create a new file with any extension within Eclipse (File->New->File or equivalent button on toolbar on 3.0M9). Is that what you meant?

The real bugger is there are no native XML or JSP editors - so you don't get syntax highlighting or code completion in JSPs for taglibs and stuff.

I've yet to find a good, free editor for either XML or JSP, though I admit I haven't looked far. The Lomboz J2EE plugin has some JSP facilities but it's massive overkill for the editor alone - I'm running Eclipse on a RAM hungry machine so I try and keep plugins to a minimum.

Anyway, HTH.

Cheers,

The XMLBuddy plugin is a decent XML editor with syntax highlighting.

SolarEclipse is a good resource friendly JSP/XML/CSS editor. Doesn't work well with 3.0 but under the 2.1 branch it's excellent.

There's an update to SolarEclipse which you can find a link to in their support forum at sf.
It's not perfect, but it works and doesn't seem to crash.
