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?

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...?
