Hello Authors and all,
When I first started EJB programming, over a year ago, I didn't see much value in it. Now I kicking my self. Anyway I need some advice. What is the best development environment/system currently? I would love an IDE that is intelligent enough to generate the Local and Remote and the Homes from the base EJB Bean. Then make the Deployment descriptors for Weblogic, WebSphere and JBoss. Now I need full control over the getters and setters. Some of our beans don't have all the setters available in the local and the remotes can be more restrictive. Right now we use Eclipse and ant with all the deployment descriptors done by hand. Is there a way to do this with Eclipse and XDoclet?

Best is very subjective term. I do all my Java coding in emacs with JDEE and XRefactory. I think that's the best. Many people find Eclipse and IDEA to be very good environments. The simplest XDoclet environment I know is Apple's Xcode. The truth is that almost any environment will work well with XDoclet. So the best one is probably the one you are already using and are familiar with. You don't need to learn a new IDE if you don't want to. Your current Eclipse environment is just fine.
With the getters/setters, in XDoclet you can mark whether each method is on the local or remote interface. (or both) And yes, XDoclet will generate the deployment descriptors for each of those appservers.
