Hello there,

I am new to eclipse and develop on Mac OSX & deploy to WinXP. My question is:

(1) What is the best plugin for Tomcat, XML support, and JBoss? I already have Tomcat installed in:

/Developer/jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28

Would the recommended plugin point to this directory or does it have its own tomcat implementation embedded inside itself? Is it easy to create executable jars, war & ear files, from these plugins?

Same questions apply to JBoss.

(2) What are the top downloaded plugins that most users of eclipse use? I mean the hottest items...

I would appreciate it if someone could e-mail me back the answers and also post the responses to this thread...

With thanks!

What do you mean by plugin for Tomcat and JBoss? Are you looking for the ability to debug from within Eclipse or is it something else?

As far as Eclipse plugins go, personally Eclipse is my least favorite IDE but if forced to use it I wouldn't use it without the MyEclipse plugin. It costs $30 but it is well worth it.
