Hi All,
there are some IDEs out there namely Eclipse, IntelliJ, GEL, NetBeans, Forte. I would appreciate if you could advise me as to which IDE would be good decision to use in the long run and why? in terms of Features/Capabilities, ease of use, support and other factors. One of the features i would like to have is J2EE compliant.
thanks.

For full J2EE support, you are likely to have to pay money. What J2EE support do you need: EJBs, JSPs ... ?

hi
hi , i think you take a look at http://www.coderanch.com/t/103093/vc/Which-IDE-must-go
then
if you need full j2ee support and you want pay for it
i suggest WSAD , best for j2ee developing for me
but jdeveloper 10g , BEA weblogic Workshop , sun one are othe item which you can try , WSAD (web sphere application developer) from ibm is one which has good designer tools included , support for desiging Struts ,Jsf applicaton and many more , also its based on eclipse , so you can use all eclipse plugins on it (compatible plugins )
