What is the best IDE to have to develop Web Application in Java?

What is the best IDE to have to develop Web Application in Java?

I have Eclipse, but I could not use it for JSP (i.e. completion are not available)

I would like to know support provided by Eclipse for JSP and Servlets ?

I guess it does support. Anyway, Eclipse also has a Tomcat plug-in which can be configured with it.

This should answer that :

There are a lot of IDE's which can do that for you but I have few which I like :

JBuilder Fondation X which is free :
http://www.borland.com/jbuilder/foundation/index.html

This is my personal favorite :

Intelli J IDEA :
http://www.jetbrains.com/

IntelliJ has good support for JSP :

Hope that helps . . .

You must be something of an expert by now on Java IDEs Javatm - for reasons some of us know, but which perhaps you ought to repeat? ;-)

When you're working with JSPs, it also matters whether you're using Tomcat, Websphere, Weblogic, etc - if you wanna use Eclipse's support, its fine. Otherwise, some App Servers come with real good IDEs, like Websphere Studio, Weblogic workshop, etc.

Anybody know which (if any) are *not* written in Java?

I don't know if there are any ;-)

If they have to do things like adding new packages, having Java/ J2EE and other perspectives, compiling/ running, etc - it might as well be easier to make them using Java.

Gel is certainly not made in Java, I think it was made from Visual.NET :

JCreator is also not made in Java, It was built 1st in C++ :

Hope that helps . . .

There are several pluginns(web) for Eclipse but if you really want complete support to JSP then use :

http://www.eclipse-workbench.com/jsp/faq_detail.jsp?cat=16&id=9

IBM Websphere Studio and branded edition of Eclipse :
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/info1/websphere/index.jsp

You can always try any IDE available on the market.

Hope that helps . . .
