Eclipse J2EE vs Eclipse with WTP?

Hi Everyone,

I am new to eclipse and would like to learn the IDE (I'm a jDeveloper guy). While taking my scwcd certification I'm going to write all of my code in eclipse. Here is my question.

When looking around on the net and, WTP seems to be the way to go. Then I go to the downloads section of Eclipse and there is a J2EE download called 'Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers' which is described as 'Tools for Java developers creating JEE and Web applications, including a Java IDE, tools for JEE and JSF, Mylyn and others'. When I download and install it, I checked the plugins and WTP isnt in there (or so I can see). Am I missing something?

My real question... what should I install:
- Eclipse IDE for Java Developers - with WTP installed after as a plugin
- Eclipse J2EE version - with WTP installed after as a plugin
- Eclipse J2EE version as it is downloaded
- Something else...

Thanks for your insight.
