Personally, of those two products I would use Tomcat for any and all purposes for which it stretches itself. The main difference between Tomcat and Sun's application server is that, well, Tomcat is a web container while the Sun product is a full application server.

If you go to the NetBeans update center, you will find there is a module that allows you to use JBoss 4 directly in NetBeans.

If you use that plugin, you can do all the J2EE stuff (servlets, EJB, web services) etc in JBoss.
