Could GWT be seen as a supplement to Eclipse? I want to continue working with my web-projects in Eclipse, but I'm looking for a tool that automates the process of generating AJAX features in my web applications.

ُEclipse is a development environment, GWT is Java to JavaScript compiler (basically).

Has anyone used the Cypal Studio for GWT? Does it have any nice features that make it worth using?

Are there any other plugins for Eclipse or Netbeans that are worth using? A google search turned up a few results, but it seems like most of them are in the early stages of development. Does anyone have any recommendations?

The plugins are helpful for getting things started. However, it's pretty simple to get a GWT app running in eclipse (in about a minute):
