Hello all, i want to know what is WTP in eclipse? And recently i downloaded Eclipse Galileo 3.5.1 SR 1. I want to know if i have to download or update the WTP Project separetly or is it included with this version of Eclipse. I want to do some dynamic web project using eclipse spring and hibernate. Or should i use NetBeans recent version? Thank you for your kind suggestions... :-)
.....For Every Problem There Is a Solution.....
It's the JEE portion of Eclipse (or the web part--not sure where the web/JEE stuff is separated).
If you downloaded the JEE version you already have it.
The debate between Eclipse/NetBeans is an entirely separate issue--you'll find passionate users for either platform.

Thanks david for the tip. Actually i downloaded the JEE version of the Eclipse...So as you said it should be there. But i am still bit confused as to which IDE i should prefer....I mean which has more out of the box support? I want to use JBOSS 5.1 at a later stage, so don't know if Eclipse 3.5.1 has support for it, because as of Eclipse 3.4 i couldn't connect with it with JBoss. So a bit confused..
Only you can decide which IDE you prefer... As far as I know both Eclipse and NetBeans work fine with JBoss, but I could certainly be mistaken. It's often just a matter of what you're more comfortable with, used to, or what those around you are using.
Earlier versions of Eclipse had poor support for JBoss AS 5.x because of the number of changes to locations of key files that Eclipse looked for. NetBeans had the same issues. To do JBoss AS 5.x-related development, use the latest Eclipse (3.5.1 for Java EE, which is what you have) and add to it the latest "Development Update" of JBoss Tools.
BTW, when installing JBoss Tools, don't select the BIRT-related plugins unless you have installed BIRT into Eclipse (BIRT doesn't come with the "Eclipse for Java EE" package).
