Hi,
I started with Struts very recently, but most of the Struts tutorials I have gone through tend to explain Struts using Eclipse IDE, but I like Netbeans 6.0
because really Its the Only IDE you need, no plugin or extra software required.

So I wanted to know if the book adheres to some specific IDE for tutorials. Although this is irrelevant with respect to the concept or scope of the book, I think it will be beneficial to beginners like me, so please put on some light on the topic.

Thanks in advance

No, we specifically stayed away from showing IDE-specific tutorials. While there are Struts 2 plugins Eclipse and IDEA 8, from what I hear, will have built-in Struts 2 support, we decided to keep the book simple and focus on the framework, not the tools.

That said, if you are interested in Netbeans, this might be useful: http://users.wmin.ac.uk/~priestm/java/struts/struts2/01.html

I thought Netbeans allow plugin as well? From what I know, you have to install the UML plugins if you need UML feature in Netbeans.

For Struts in Eclipse, if you're looking for some GUI to do the configuration or some wizard to create a Struts 2 project, it is not there yet (at least for free Eclipse/plugins). But you can simply import the Struts blank WAR into Eclipse and it will create an Eclipse project for you to work on.

Not sure if you could do the same in Netbeans. Why not just give it a try by importing and see if a Netbeans project could be created.

As a Struts 2 developer, I'm more interested in my IDE's support for my servlet container, debugging, etc. Are you familiar with stuff like the Eclipse Tomcat plugins, or similar stuff for your own container of choice?

Thank you authors for the reply and Don, thanks for the link.
I was tempted for this question because as I said above till now I only found tutorials using Netbeans.
Glad to hear that the book emphasizes on framework rather than tools.


Thank you again.
