Hey guys,

I'm paying serious thought to using JSF's, would I need an editor for this or should I just resort to using something like MS frontpage?? [I did this in a previous project that i did using JSP's I had no probs]

Your thoughts and recomendations will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Regards
Zein

If you want to edit the web,you can use Dreamweaver.
If you want to developer JSF,you can use Exadel.Studio.Pro.but i think you had better use it together.
you can down the tools in the internet.

I used Eclipse for JSP and JSF. The problem is that there is no syntax highlight for thoese tags. Is there any special set up for using Eclipse for JSP/JSF tags? Should I download some plugins?

Thanks.

I use JDeveloper - it is a good IDE and it has visual JSF support.

Download the Eclipse Web Tools Project (WTP) plug-in.

In Eclipse, choose: Help / Software Updates / Find and Install..., make sure "Search for new features to install" is selected, and from there you can find the Eclipse WTP tools and other Eclipse plug-ins.

I tried to download the WTP plug-in following above mentioned steps, but get following message. Any clue?

http://download.eclipse.org/webtools/updates/ [java.io.IOException]

Besides, for JSDK 1.4, Tomcat 5.5, can we only use JSF 1.1 to be compatible with Servlet 2.4/JSP 2.0 reference?

Thanks.

The WTP by itself won't do much for you in the way of JSF visual development. It just gives Eclipse the ability to edit web related type files (xml, jsp, html, etc) and a few other little goodies.

Eclispe 3.2 with Exadel 4.0 is the best tool for JSF/Spring/Struts/Hibernate!
