Hi Java Ranchers
I use Apache- Tomcat webserver in my work place and I am open to choose any IDE tool for java which has a free download. I am just wondering what is the best IDE that goes along with Tomcat. I know that IBM Visual age and websphere go together but I have not idea about working with Visual Age and Tomcat. Also considering the most widely used IDE in the IT market now-a-days, please suggest me an IDE tool for Java to work along with Tomcat.
Thanks In Advance
Sudha.

I like Borland's JBuilder. I've been through many IDE's and this is the best one so far that can handle nearly all tasks. I also wouldn't say one IDE really works particularly better than another with Tomcat, it's all in the setup of the IDE. Borland has many servers built right into the product as well (Tomcat 4, Tomcat 3.2, Websphere 4, iPlanet App server 6, etc..)

Oh and if you're seeking something more lightweight, give JCreator a try.

I have been using Sun's Forte (now One Studio) for an IDE and doing apache/JSP/Maverick development with it. It has a built in Tomcat server.
