I started out using Netbeans with Jboss (includes Tomcat) and it's able to hot deploy. But I am also using EJBs in my app.

I agree, JBoss is an excellent choice for fast development; hot deploy & easy to use.

GlassFish is an Excellent choice and ranked among the best 10 servers in the world

please watch this comparison here:

Allow me to add that for out-of-the-box fast development with Glassfish you may use Netbeans.

JBoss is just simpler to use as a stand-alone server. Please don't miss the discussion with an expert that is taking place at the JBoss forum.

Its very well known that Netbeans is one of the strongest and easiest IDE in the markiet..some get used to use Eclipse which is used mostly with websphere..its excellent but i didnt like it..and the integeration between Netbeans and Glassfish is a bonus for fast testing and development.You can also add most popular Servers to work with Netbeans not only GlassFish.. i think alot of developers have to try to use Netbeans because its really powerful

I am doing some example code for developing EJB 3.0.
Anybody know how to setup Glassfish v2 in Eclipse 3.3 for this purpose.
I tried a couple of time, but still failed on it.

Thanks alot.
