Deployment, build etc. is done in background, you should not to run manualy Ant scripts from command line. I used to work only with text editor and command line. I must say that IDE is more better and more efective.

Actually I'm using Websphere for iSeries and Eclipse 3.0. I find it better than NetBeans.

I�m using Eclipse with Lomboz ... The problem is that even modifications in jsp files, i must deploy all my web application.

It's good that Tomcat does not need to redeploy again, after modications in JSP files are done... Tomcat 5 is a lot better in such situation, compared to previous versions of Tomcat...

most ide's nowadays support one or other version of tomcat. However most will still be a little behind with the most current version of tomcat. It is not just using the IDE and the integrated tomcat option. In my opinion the IDE should also be able to make a well packaged .war file so it will deploy on any server.
The local testing TOMCAT and integration with ANT should be good in the IDE, otherwise it is still nearly useless.

Does the book give examples of working with Tomcat inside a certain IDE, or is it more focused on Tomcat itself?

The IDE I use, OmniCore CodeGuide (pricey, but spectacular), has Tomcat integration. But to tell you the turth, I don't use it. I just find it gets in the way. I use the IDE for its excellent code analysis and refactoring support, but test on a standalone installation of Tomcat.

Well, I'm pretty sure, while reading the sample chapters, that there is no topic about specific IDEs integrated with Tomcat in the book... It is more focused on Tomcat, which it is supposed to be...

I was trying Eclipse plugin for JBoss. It was working.
But maybe most of people aren't using EJBs.
