I have only played a little with an older version of JBoss.
If I now want to test if I like it or not.
What eclipse based IDE should I use?
JBoss IDE appears to be quite new.
May it be, that right now Lomboz is still less confusing choice for a guy with very little JBoss specific knowledge?
I have some - maybe wrong - doubt about if JBoss IDE is allready stable enough.

I've used both of the plugins that you mention in the past, and they both work.

NetBeans has also just released a JBoss plugin for NetBeans 4.

Give them all a try and see which one you like the best (my personal favourite is NetBeans).

Its fine with Eclipse 3.0, but doesn't work properly yet for Eclipse 3.1.
