I am currently developing some lightweight web components using MVC approach. I'm working alone and so i'm searching for an even more efficient method for development. i've heard of struts, JSF, Tapestry etc.

can someone pls give some guidance re which to learn next.

Also is it worth switching to an IDE such as netbeans - currently developing with JEdit

Just stay with what you are comfortable. I prefer using eclipse. Netbeans is kinda toooooo slow.

In case its not required don't follow any pattern. Secondly you would need to understand your requirements before delving into a specific pattern.

My prefrred IDE is eclipse.

As far as web framework is concerned, learn one of the component based frameworks like JSF or Tapestry.

My preferred choice is Tapestry. google for JSF vs Tapestry and you should get some articles on comparison.
