Hi everyone?
I was given some j2ee code(Spring and struts and OJB) to debug and understand the workflow.They dont have any IDE's like Myeclipse,RAD,WSAD etc.They said i can use any IDE whichever I like.I am using MyEclipse.
They have the code in CVS repository and i downloaded the code from that.i am having hard time to import those codes in MYEclipse,because myeclipse forces to do some set up to import the code.
If every one uses different IDE,wont be a problem in the future if the project grows big?

Usually when a project doesn't specify an IDE, they provide Ant or Maven build scripts that specify the configuration.
