i tryed several plugins for eclipse, to integrate with JBoss - i found that:
1. Easiejboss from genuitec works poorly with newer version.
2. Lomboz work very well with Tomcat standalone and JBoss(I worked with the new JBoss without tomcat engine), as long as you follow the steps of the tutorial.

3. finally i got into some trouble, when sharing the project with CVS to; there were some parameter troubles. I also wannted to do some code gen. with XDoclet (EJBs & Struts) and i ran into some version incompatibilities.
I designed a build.xml myself (for ANT) by inspiring from Lomboz; I kept Lombox for the JSP editor, and kept some of it's directory structure, in order to keep the JSP error tracking active (just like in Java files - lomboz feature). But i controll the build and deploy process myself.
finally, I would say Lomboz does a great deal, and if you do a local project, not too big, it is the way to go.
and i'm sure it evolved since i've last seen it (2-3 months ago)
hope this helps

Hi Rudi,
I learnt a lot from your posting. I am trying to integrate Tomcat, Jboss usng Lomboz as you said.
I think I should integrate tomcat and jboss first and use tomcat as server. However, I used the latest version of them so I can not find the integrating instruction. Can you give me a hand?
Thank you.

Hi Timber Lee,

Try My Eclipse. its really great. it has got jsp editor too along with pluggin for many app servers. Works really fast. Actually i found Lomboz pluggin very slow for jsps.
But its not free(costs $30). Any way u can see its great features if u want, within 30 days trial, before u think of getting the license.

I agree. Here's the link:
