Hey all,
I've been using Sysdeo plugin for Eclipse for while, then started trying netbeans and was amazed at the difference in tomcat support. Since it has been a while since I've reviewed alternatives (particularly now that tomcat 7 is out), is there better options for Eclipse plugins to do web development with Tomcat for debugging, code changing and quick-deploy.

thanks for any help (and I would be interested in the Tomcat 7 book :-).

-D

Darren, I think you had an epiphany. NetBeans really does just "do it better." Most of the Tomcat plugins for Eclipse tack support on to existing plugins. From Maven to Tomcat integration NetBeans is still your best choice.

I can't speak for JDeveloper, but isn't it just Eclipse in an Oracle wrapper?
