I try to code some sample code during learning H&F. I know JBuilder 2005 suport this. but it is overkill. and you can get only trial version. I am wondering if any IDE like NetBean, Eclipse, etc can support JSP2.0.

Hello Xu,

if You study for the exam, do not use learn quicker, if you don't use wizards.

Open Source IDEs for JSP 2.0:

Eclipse + a J2EE plugin from the IBM. Available on

Eclipse + Lomboz plugin. Available on

Netbeans - get the leatest version.

Even I agree with Gabriel, because IDE's does some of the coding by default. And from an exam point of view, you need to understand how to write the code properly.

So the best IDE when preparing for the exam is "TextPad"

Hi Giju,

I agree, you type everthing by yourself is good way to memorize. do how you compile and build the war file. Use Ant?

I am studing for the exam and use Eclipse... I don't let it do the 'smart' implementation of the interfaces or methods though... So I can learn what needs to be there.

This allows me to make code changes and build a war file with realtive ease.

Here is my build.xml for ant to build the war file
