I'm relatively new to J2EE environment and with the usage of eclipse. I used to practice J2EE without any tool and used to deploy onto Java Application Server . But now I actually wanted to work on some real time tools. I heard about eclipse but failed to setup a J2EE environment properly in my machine. I browsed many sites and too much of information has actually confused me. I read about of Lomboz, JBossIDE etc and really not sure, if I really need to have all these things set up to run a simple J2EE application
Can anyone let me know, which version of eclipse is required to develop and run a simple J2EE 1.3 and J2EE 1.4 applications. I also wanted to use Jboss and/or weblogic servers for practicing. But I'm not able to figure out compatible versions of eclipse, Jboss , weblogic and the corresponding plugins for J2EE developement. Also please send me a link about developing J2EE using eclipse+Jboss/Weblogic+J2EE 1.4.
literally I spent three days in setting up this environment and all the effort was just wasted . Please help me out . Thanks in advance.
