I have been developing applications using JSP, Servlets and JDBC. Usually, we develop our input forms in Adobe Dreamwaver
and convert them to JSP by putting in the JSP code.

I am trying to learn Struts 2 and I have worked on some small examples of CRUD applictions in Struts 2. But, I want to know
Can we develop these Struts 2 input forms with some tool like Adobe Dreamweaver ?
So that make our forms a lot easily.

Please answer my question and help me to know How can I set milestones for myself for learning Struts 2.

Thank you in advance

If you use Eclipse, there's dozens of visual editors for JSP's, for example the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse.
Personally, I use a programmer's text editor (jEdit).

Thanks Joe for reply.

I usually use Netbeans 7. I have used Eclipse too.
Do the tools you have named, provide support for pick and drop struts 2 form controls such as textfield, textareas, list etc.
I mean developing the form, and rest code is automatically generated.

Also, are there any free tools available?

Hi Manish,
You can try out the following

  • Oracle JDeveloper
    MyEclipse Visual Web Designer
    ObjectAssembler 2.5 Pro by ObjectVentur
    Struts Console 3.0 by James Holmes.
    JForms: a visual tool for Struts-based Web forms.
    Scioworks Camino by Scioworks Pte Ltd.
    Struts Builder by RiverNorth
    Struts GUI by Alien-Factory
    Struts Studio by Exadel Inc.

  • In my opinion , if you had used Eclipse or Netbeans, the plugins that are available there are quite enough. You can also search for plugins there..

    Plus people here are not working full time on this site, so please have patience when you ask questions...

    Regards,
    Vanlal

    Which is the mostly used tool for developing input forms?
    Remember I am only asking for developing input forms,
    rest of the coding(classes and xml files) can be created in Netbeans.
