hi... what is the best IDE for developing the struts...now i worked in Bea workshop,,which support the GUI visual to easy use the struts... are there IDEs better than Bea. what about JDeveloper,JBuilder..etc?
I use IntelliJ IDEA. It is a very nice IDE and you would have quite a struggle convincing some of my coworkers to switch to another IDE. Eclipse has progressed to the point that if we were evaluating development tools now, it would be very hard to justify paying for and IDE.
BTW, what features do other IDE (or plug-ins) do to assist with Struts development? At one point I tried out one that provided a GUI for editing struts-config, but I guess I am a geek as I preferred editing the XML directly.
I think it's important to understand the Struts XML configuration, but once you have a good understanding the MyEclispe wizards just saves you so much typing, and the Visual Struts Modeler enables you to get a quick picture of how the actions, forms and jsp files are linked. The jsp editor also enables autocompletion of JSP tags.
It also provides other plugins for Hibernate, Spring etc.

Hi all, I'll vote for NetBeans IDE v5.0, this is a really simple and feature-rich IDE with a nice looking interface. Though I've used Oracle JDeveloper also, but it was not at all close to NetBeans, and it's freely available for downloading on NetBeans Site. Regards, Varun Narang
