Jboss newbie (5.1.0 GA) + eclipse: what's the best configuration?

I am a JBoss newbie. I have now cut my teeth on deploying to JBoss 5.1.0.GA.

I now want to set up a JBoss 5.1.0.GA instance for development in combination with Eclipse Helios (+ Maven).


My goal is to be able to hot-step/debug through Java code while running the server in a development environment.

What is the best way to achieve this environment?

1. using a JBoss plugin to Eclipse (JBoss Tools?)?

or

running a free standing JBoss instance, referencing it in Eclipse, and running it that way?


These two options would seem similar to those available for Eclipse development on Tomcat.


And is there a decent JBoss 5.1 server or Eclipse plugin to run on Windows XP? otherwise I'll use something that will run on Linux.

Hi

I have nightmares configuring JBoss 5.1.0 GA Server on Eclipse Juno. It just doesnt work.

I have to run JBoss instance seperately and use build.xml on Eclipse's project workspace to deploy the jar/ear/war to the deploy folder.

Works just fine for me besides my Eclipse too has no issues.

Thank you, Siitesh, this is excellent, just the kind of advice I was looking for.

I will try a free-standing instance. Interesting about build.xml; I will look into using that.

Ping me your email id and I will send you the build.xml else let me try posting it here.

ASLIBREPOSITORY_HOME
AXIS14_HOME
JBOSS_HOME

These settings mentioned above are done on the computer's Environment Variables (either system or user variable)
