Hello folks,
I'd like to ask what are the advantages (if exists!) of using JBuilder 5 in JSP development. Is it a good IDE for JSP or only for applets and applications? What IDE world be better or should I continue using my text editor and an HTML editor for the development?...
Thanx
Clayton

I like JBuilder because its all inclusive. You can create servlets, jsp pages, ejbs and anything else you can think of. You can code, compile, and even run your program within JBuilder (it has tomcat built in). It will also list possible methods when you identify a class.

For JSP devolpment Sun's Forte is good. I don't know if JBuilder allows you to compile JSP's but forte does. It is easy for debugging. The best part is that the community edition is free .

I am currently using JBuilder 5 for JSP development and I think it works great. As mentioned, you can compile and run with the click of a button. Additionally, you can debug very easily and the standard out window is easily accessible too (for viewing simple System.out.println statements for debugging). Of course, you still have access to all the help files which is very handy for quick API lookups, etc. Overall, I have been very pleased with JBuilder up to this point.
Hope that helps,
-MLA
