Dear All,
I have just started on struts, can someone please suggest which is best IDE to use for editing, running,
debuging, maintaining versions, class designing for struts 2.

Thanks
Sharmila

IntelliJ or MyEclipse. (I don't know about NetBeans; maybe somebody else can chime in with its level of support.)

I've not seen any good plugin for Netbeans for Struts 2...

(I think the OP was specifically asking about Struts 2 support, not container support.)

Thanks David, Ankit and Richard,
I will take a look at Eclipse, IntelliJ or MyEclipse. And what about Maven? Is it good for class design and struts both?
Thanks

I'm not sure what the question means; Maven has nothing to do with class design or Struts (other than Struts uses Maven to build itself). It's "just" a build tool (with a learning curve once you venture beyond the basics).

Thanks David for your reply,
Sorry, i was thinking Maven as class designing tool as well as editor! You are right, will come to know these things once go beyond basics.
