I'm looking for opinions about which is the best Eclipse plugin for Java web development. I'm only interested in free plugins and would like something which supports developing Servlets, JSPs, Struts.

Integration with JBoss would be good too.

The completely free Web tool plugin for eclipse is WST. Here's the link:

However, there is an "almost free" tool that is orders of magnitude better than WST called MyEclipse. It's only 29.95 per year. I'd suggest you do the trial download, compare it to WST and see what you think. Here's the link:

Hi Dan

I'm using Exadel Studio which is pretty slick (has a few minor glitches but they are minor) They do a free one and a buy it version - the free one lags a bit in functionality but it's great - handles struts and jsf


hope it helps
