Hi Mark,

I usually use Cactus as the driver to invoke my server side code while debugging. You can find more about it on the apache site or just google 'cactus j2ee testing' and you should see lots of hits.

Good Luck!
Hi V,

Are you using any optional or plugin tasks? If not don't add the tools.jar file to the ant runtime. Running java on the mac automatically includes classes.jar and tools.jar on the classpath (tools.jar is unjared and rejared with classes.jar).

I do not add any libraries to the ant run time to get ant to run on my mac running 10.3.4, JDK 1.4.2, Eclipse 3.0 and the embedded version of ant (1.6.1).

Hope this helps!
Hi Ankit,

Check out this url J2EE Plugins. They have user reviews so you can get a feel for which one seems to be the most popular. From the feedback I've heard Lomboz is currently the winner for free stuff and MyEclipse is the winner for very near free ($30/year).

Good Luck & hope this helps!
Hi Tim,

The book is currently aimed at the person new to the IDE but attempts to get into the details of each feature (cvs, refactoring, junit, etc) that might not be that obvious. You could probably find all the info via google but if you don't know about the feature then you are not likely too look. One example that many people miss is remote debugging. Another might be Working Sets. Both very cool features that many don't use because they don't even know to look for them.

Hope this helps!

Well it has been great being here with you this week. I'll still be lurking but not quite as active.

Best Wishes!
Beehive is going to be integrated into Eclipse.

I posted a blog entry today with the link to the story here.

Hope this helps!
JSF Support is comming via plugin support.

Just FYI: virtually all Eclipse functionality is delivered by plugins. Some plugins are 'standard' in the download and some are not. I'd expect that the webtools project will have JSF support.

Hope this helps!
Hi Gian,

Some of the higher level stuff is already there. DeveloperWorks has a plugin for analysing J2EE code for patterns & anti-patterns. I have forgotten what its called but I'm sure that with a little help from google you could find it.

Good Luck!
Hi Ko Ko,

I really appreciate the help but i think that you reposting it technically is a violation of the terms of download.

Please lets get Javoso able to use SB's website since he is probably not the only one having problems.
Hi Shailesh,

I've used Eclipse with java.net & sourceforge. And on my mac


bdudney$ cvs -version

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.5 (client/server)

and it works like a champ.
Hi Gian,

There is a subproject of Eclipse called Haydes that should seriously do what you are talking about. There is a ton of stuff there (or was 6 to 8 months ago when I was reading about it). I'm sure its better today than when i was looking.

Good Luck!
Hi Glenn,

I'm sorry to say that I don't know. I have decided to retrain my brain to understand Eclipse's standard key binding and live with what is not there. I tried for quite a while in 2.x and even in early 3.0Mx releases to do Emacs key bindings but they just don't work well enough to rely on them so I've just learned 'the eclipse way'.

Hope this helps!
Hi,

As you susspected Java is covered very well out of the box. Other tools are needed for J2EE. Shortly (I expect by October or so) there will be free plugins on Eclipse.org that will help you greatly with J2Ee development.

For now many people like Lomboz.

Good Luck!
Hi Tom,

The book does not cover building plugins or EMF. Both subjects could fill their own books (and have).

My book is focused on the person new to Eclipse and getting them up to speed as quicly as possible on how to do java development with Eclipse.

Hope this helps!
Hi Shailesh,

Thanks again for the kind words.

If you don't have a server you will have down load the CVS distro for your platform and install and go through all the steps to get it up and running. You must set it up in client/server mode to work with Eclipse.

If you already have a server (i.e. sourceforge, work, java.net etc) then you will be good to go once Eclipse is installed. The integration is great!

Good Luck!
