Both support JSP. You need to create a web project and it will sprout you a WEB-INF folder with a web.xml, lib dir and classes dir.

Use the J2EE perspective in WSAD for best effect... it gives you a split web perspective/application perspective.

In short no plugins are needed... just need to set the right kind of project.

In WSAD 5, go:

File > New > Project > WEB > Dynamic Web Project

Click Next and give your project a name and set file locations. Then click Finish. WSAD will now shoot off and make a web project for you. It'll make JavaSource and WebContent directories where you told it to. In your WebContent it'll but a WEB-INF and META-INF with bare bone files in them.

Contrary to my last post you should use the web perspective to build your new app.

Hope this is what you were looking for.

Yes you need a plugin like Nitrox or My eclipse or Excadel studio.

BUt NetBeans 5.0 has an excellent inbuilt JSF IDE. Try Out.

Thank You

I don't think so but it may have JSF upgrades as what i know WSAD has Struts support. But for eclipse you surely get lot many plugins. And If you want particularly IBM product RAD has support for JSF I suppose. JSF IDE in netbeans is drag ddrop style ide nice one to try and start off with.

Thank You.

WSAD v 5.1.2 and later (including its successor, RAD V6.x) all support JSF. The WTP project for Eclipse supports JSF.
