hi everyone,

i recently passed the scjp 5.0 exam and am preparing for the scwcd exam right now by using the hfsj book. when i was doing code examples in the scjp 5.0 i did most of it using JCreator because it was easy to compile and run. my question is, is there such a software i can use to create and deploy servlets as i did in JCreator? because at current what i do is write it in notepad and then save it with its required extension such as .xml,.java,.html and .jsp. and also is there a way to deploy without having to create a WEBINF directory always for each project. is there such software?

thank you

Hi Dinuka,

although You are doing the ideal way, though there are IDE's that can serve your purpose. You may try NetBeans/eclipse.
Every application must have WEB-INF folder, without it the container can't access the deployment descriptor and hence, can't load the application.

Thanks and regards,
Saurabh Kumar

thank you for your advice Saurabh Kumar. but one more doubt. which one is better to use? netbeans or eclipse? i already have netbeans but its a bit complicated to use and a bit too slow as well. do you need to get any plugins for the elipse to configure tom cat and all?

thank you

I don't have much idea about this but I got some information on this in this forum(in different post)

Instead of downloading and configuring plugins for eclipse, just download easyEclipse( server version ) from nexb. You will ge'em all out of the box.



hope it may help you
