Hi! I am a newbie to JSF and I have got some books for that. But I am not sure of what IDEs to use for them so that I can develop the applications easily. I have Sun Studio Creator, but its so massive and highly difficult to understand. Are there any books available for IDEs like Sun Studio creator?
In eclipse are there any plugins for drag-and-drop style development for JSF?

Exadel Studio Pro is a good candidate. It offers graphical preview and code highlight. You can download a trial from www.exadel.com

By August, this Eclipse plugin should become open source.

Note: I'd recommend you to understand well JSF lifecycle; otherwise, you could get into many "unexplainable" issues.

Red Hat bought Exadel (AFAIK) and will be branded under the name:
"Red Hat Developer Studio"

Netbeans is Sun's free IDE, and it's made a quantum leap in usability lately.
However, you should take also consider the container type required by your project. Netbeans has Tomcat, SJSAS(Glassfish), and is JBOSS capable. Tomcat, however is not a EJB container. Additionally, Netbeans may be the reference implementation used for Oracle's Java IDE, so some say. Netbeans has a lot of tutorials on their site. Eclipse is free, and widely used, but you will find more sophisticated versions in use by corporations. There tools integration is fairly raw, compared to Netbeans, but both are good.

Well, AFAIK, Oracle is a member of Eclipse foundation which means they will not adopt NetBeans.
