Hi..
I have heard about IDE and for Tomcat I have downloaded Esclipse with Lombaz plugin. Whether these things will be useful for me ..? If so...how..?
Are there any other IDEs available fro Tomcat/Apache..?

Personally I just use a programmer's text editor (UltraEdit32) and ANT. Of course I work on relatively small servlet applications for which IDEs are overkill.
I never recommend IDEs for beginning programmers - they tend to hide details that you need to get familiar with.

Thanks alot...
Yes I know that a beginner should not hurry to use IDE as the concepts/logic involved during the programming is not cleared.
