Just curious - how many of the leading Java IDEs (Eclipse, NetBeans, JBuilder, etc) support developing Struts-based applications? Does any one IDE stand out?

Thanks in advance .. PSM

At least JBuilder (not commercial versions) and WSAD include Struts designers and Struts configuration file editors. The plain Eclipse doesn't support Struts but the commercial package, MyEclipseIDE, includes functionality similar to those of WSAD's/JBuilder's.

Amost all of the major IDEs support Struts at some level. Also, my software: Struts Console is very popular and supports almost all major IDEs.
