I am new to web development . I would have to create a web site using DB2. I have installed DB2 and IBM developer studio . I have my original eclipse set up for developing Servelets( Integrated the apache tomcat). The developer studio opens as a seperate eclipse instance and the eclipse which I am using for my servelets developement opens seperate . Should I use the developer studio eclipse seperately for developing Database data or is there any means by which I can integrate it into the main eclipse window which i am using to develop servelets.

Exactly what are you using Developer Studio for? I gather it has something to do with DB2, but exactly what? In all servlet development that I have done where i needed database access I never had to use anything beyond JDBC (or an ORM such a JPA or Hibernate).

I can think of two possibilities:

a) Import you web app project into Developer Studio and use it for both DB2 and servlets work.

b) Install a plugin into Eclipse that provides the DB2 capabilities that you need and do all of your work in Eclipse.
