We want to develop a Struts 2 based web application using Eclipse IDE. For that we have downloaded Eclipse 3.4 IDE (GANYMADE) because it was prompted as the latest version for JEE web applications. But in the New > Projects , there was nothing like a web project. Then we have tried Eclipse 3.3.2 (EUROPA) and it was showing New > Projects > WEB application.

It would be greatly appreciated if anybody can give an explanation or atleast a pointer about the differences in these two Eclipse versions.

Also how to set up a Struts 2 based web project in Eclipse (Europa). Does it need any additional plug-in or if that plug-in is alreasy downloaded, how to configure it.


Thanks & Regards,
Harimohan R

Please read the JavaRanch user name policy.

If you're having issues with Eclipse you should look at the Eclipse documentation. It's possible you just didn't download the JEE version that includes the WTP.

AFAIK there is not yet a complete Eclipse plugin for dealing with Struts 2 specifically. Searching the web, which you could also do, shows the http://mvcwebproject.sourceforge.net/ project, but I've never tried it.

IntelliJ IDEA also supports Struts 2 to some extent. I don't know what the state of S2 support in NetBeans is these days.

hi,
simply download the J2EE plugin and struts console plug in for eclipse from net and copy them in plug in folder.
Every version of Eclipse IDE will support it.

Struts Console is for Struts 1.
