Can we use Eclipse for J2EE Developers with Jboss IDE plugin ?

Dear rocky,

Unfortunately I have not tested Eclipse with JBoss nor with some special JBoss plugins.

From my past BEA WLS integration experience the plugin might be very good or just very poor.

What I am using is MyEclipse which offers very good connectors to any app server like Tomcat, BEA, JBoss where it makes fun to develop because of
hot-sync / hot-deploy of your Java code into the app server.

It also supports starting the app server with configuration in the Eclipse IDE.

The professional version of MyEclipse only costs some $ / year subscription and offers a 30 days trial.

So I think you would like to compare the special JBoss plugin for Eclipse with the MyEclipse app server connectors.

Good luck!

For fear of having a loving with MyEclipse, it really is worth the small cost of admission. You should give it a try.
