I�d like to have some tips on what editor/IDE to use for editing my JSPs. Untill now I've used Dreamweaver because I like the way you can be in layout mode and source mode simultaneously as well as the wizard-like features for inserting HTML elements. I tried JBuilder (which I use for Java coding) for JSPs but that sucks.

With Struts tags and other custom tags in my pages Dreamweaver doesn't really have much going for it anymore.

Is Eclipse the way to go? Any ideas/tips are appreciated.

what version of DW are you using? i use DW for all my JSPs development and i love it. i have my custom tag libs (struts and jstl) added into DW for quick tag call (ctrl-c). you definitely are missing out if you're not doing this (edit > tag libraries > plus sign > jsp > import from...).

WSAD has page composer that is nice, but very slow. WSAD also has 'configuration file editor' mode for struts-config.xml, but it really doesn't help much, unless you're too scare to look at xml.

Thanks Alan!

I imported the tld's to DW, it made it a notch better. It would be nice to see the rendering of struts html tags though, that would make the layout design work a lot easier.
