I use Visual J++, Visual Age and JBuilder to write applets and java applications, how about for EBJs and servlets?

well, for servlets u need some kind of web server that supports servlets.
the best free one out there is tomcat 4.0 which is avaliable at java.sun.com site.
for ejb u need also an application server like web sphere or web logic i think...

Hello Roy.. thanks for your answer.. for EJBs yes, you need IBM Websphere or BEA Weblogic.. but my question was more geared towards what editor to use for creating these, like does it matter? Can you use Visual InterDev? I have no experience in doing these, as you can see! So the answer is probably more simple for someone who has done minimal programming in these, unlike me!

i dont think your editor matters much.
as much as i know textpad is enough
however if u already got some good IDE like u said, i c no problem using those.
just as a side note, there are pretty good plugin IDE out there that seem popular, like netbeans or eclipse. u can try those too.

As Roy stated, the editor you use to create a JSP, Servlet or EJB doesn't matter -- it's all just code (same as your application and applets).
However -- to actually run your JSPs and Servlets, you'll need to run them in an App Server, as you know. And you'll need to use a tool provided by your App Server vendor in order to generate the Home and Remote interfaces for your EJBs (the interfaces themselves are vendor dependent).
.... And if you don't already have an App Server of choice, check out the FREE HP Application Server 8.0!!!

To do only JSP and servlets, you don't strictly speaking, need an 'app' server, if you treat 'application server' to mean (as I think most people still do?) an EJB container.

Tomcat is a web-container (or 'servlet runner') and is also built-in to JBuilder. It is the reference implementation and also fairly easy to use.

If you're using the non-free version of JBuilder, there are also lots of wizards to start you out with both JSP and servlets. If you use the Enterprise version, it has EJB wizards.
