I just would like to know whether there is some topics in the book dedicated for the tools and IDEs that can be used with JSF?

Is there any tools that you are sticking with? And what is your favourite among them?

Thanks...

Thanks... I just checked the TOC again and found out that there is one section talking about that... For more info, we would need to wait for Mr.Kito to reply this thread...

Ko Ko,

Tools are a primary focus in this book -- I have been in contact with IBM, Oracle, and Sun for over a year (you can only imagine how much red tape I had to go through). So, the tools are WSAD, JDeveloper, and Java Studio Creator. Those three IDEs are featured throughout -- for most topics, I show a screen shot of how it relates to an IDE. And Appendix B shows how to build part of the case study using all three IDEs. Tha appendix is 85 pages long.

My personal preference is hard to say, since I'm a JBuilder user, and Borland wasn't ready to talk about their JSF support when I was writing that part of the book.

I think Java Studio Creator is great for smaller, all-JSF products (especiallly once they get all of the bugs out). WSAD or Eclipse shops would be happy with WSAD's support. Personally, I find it somewhat counter-intuitive, but it's great at mixing and matching different technologies. JDeveloper is along those lines, but they have such an extensive array of components that I think it's a big selling point. I find their approach more intutive as than IBM's.

Anyway, that's my 2 cents

Mr.Kito,
I'm also one of the JBuilder's fans. I'm using JBuilder X for my daily work.

FYI, The following is what I've just extracted from Borland's JBuilder site. I believe that JBuilder will emphasize mroe on JSF in the next version of JBuilder which is JBuilder 2005...

New in JBuilder 2005!
-JavaServer Faces editor and visual flow designer
-J2SE 5.0 and J2EE 1.4 support
-Distributed refactoring
-Code audits
-Additional Optimizeit performance tools
-Expanded ALM integration

It will be good for JBuilder's fans like us...
