Hi there,
have to do a site for my company and they want it done in Java(Jsps and Servlets) but its got to be cheap. I was thinking Tomcat or JBoss. Can anyone tell me which is better and if possible why? What would be the best tool for developing and deploying on one of these.
Cheers in advance

tomcat is servler container only. JBoss is full j2ee server, so they are different thing. to it is not apple to apple. depend on your need, do you need a full j2ee server, are you going to do ejb?

btw Jboss and Tomcat IMHO i wud anyday choose JBoss or any IDE for it is quicker to build production applications using an IDE, you can concentrate on the business logic and not spend time searching for syntax errors and methods.

You can download JBoss with integrated Tomcat.
But like kennethxu already said, it all depends what you are going to do. If you are only going to use JSP and Servlets Tomcat will do.
The best tool? There are a lot of good tools. For the moment i use Eclipse and it does all i need.

Again, if you only want to do Servlets/JSPs, then Tomcat is all you need.  If you want to use Enterprise Java Beans, then you need JBoss.  JBoss will also handle the Servlets/JSPs.

Any IDE will be adequate for Servlets/JSPs, since they are just Java and text (HTML).

Personally, I use Ant to deal with the building, packaging, deployment and testing of my Servlets/JSPs.

As far as IDE's go, here's a couple of links to free IDEs (Eclipse has already been mentioned).  Both of these have a large number of plug-ins that should give you plenty of options:

Well I haven't  got all the project details yet but I imagine I will be using Model 2 pattern for this application and that there will be some EJBs needed so Jboss would be the best option. About the IDE, as this is my first J2EE project I have only used the deploytool that comes with the JSKEE from Sun for tutorial purposes, which kinda puts everything together for you, allows the use configure wars, beans and writes out to web.xml itself. Is there such a IDE for JBoss.

Cheers in advance

If you look at http://eclipse-plugins.2y.net/eclipse/plugins.jsp?category=To+be+removed&pager.offset=10
You can see that Eclipse has a JBoss plug-in. I never tried it, so i don't know if it is good.

Willery,
 JBOSS ?? If Oracle is ur database u wud be better off using Oc4j or Orion container as these are suggested by Oracle guys themselves for development. Again, like JBoss, Oc4j is also free of cost.
