I have used JDeveloper. It was good. Now I am using Eclipse and this is also not bad.

WSAD 5.x+ (built on Eclipse) has some built-in supports for Struts.

IBM Websphere Studio Application Developer 5.x and the newer Rational Application Developer 6.0 has good support for Struts. There are also some plugins for Eclipse that make it easier to develop Struts applications. MyEclipse also has good Struts support.

IDEA intelliJ is quite good too. I have been using it for about 2 years now. It has hot deploy where you can deploy your application without shutting down your container. I can also debug and does NOT require lot of effort setting it up.

As far as Struts goes, there are no plugin's to install. You just give all the libraries your project uses including struts.jar. There is nothing special to configure.

You can download Sturts Console and plug-in to IDEA, which allows you to fill-in your struts-config.xml file without any errors. But this is not needed to run Struts in IDEA.

I agree. Here's the link:
