J2EE project in Eclipse

Hi,

I downloaded Eclipse 3.0 and installed. There is Java perspective, but nothing about J2EE. I tried to use Eclipse to create J2EE components such as servlet, JSP, but J2EE API is not there.

Can you help?


Thanks,<br />Mike

Eclipse has just started the Web Tools Project. They have plugins to download to help with J2EE development.

There's also a commercial offering called MyEclipse ($30USD/yr subscription).

I don't have direct experience with them so I can not give you good points or bad points.

HTH

Hi,

The most popular plugins to work with J2EE and Eclipse are:
1) Lomboz - www.objectlearn.com
2) JBOSS IDE - www.jboss.org
3) MyEclipse - www.myeclipseide.com

I have tried all.
I considered MyEclipse easier.

The Web Tools project has initial contributions from IBM (former WSAD plug-ins) and Lomboz available for download from http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/development/main.html. Genuitec the makers of MyEclipse have even provided some bug fixes to the initial IBM contribution.

Regarding my MyEclipse, many of the MyEclipse plug-ins are from the IBM contribution. MyEclipse does not have any fancy EJB wizards or editors. Most of the EJB functionality is provided by XDoclet.

You can't be serious. If $30 per year is "very expensive" then what do you call IDEA's $500, or JBuilder Enterprise's $3500, or WSAD's whoknowshowmuch...?
