    JDeveloper has wupport for generation of WebLogic specific deployment descriptors. However, there is an irritating bug in it. JDeveloper uses an encoding (windows- something) not supported by the XML parser in WLS.

    IBM has released "Websphere Studio Application Developer" version 5.0

    Give it a try.

  6. vim or emacs[ Go to top ]

    Learn a _real_ editor like vim ( or emacs ( and the command line. Use ant ( or make for compilation and stuff. vim and emacs are about 1,000,000 times more powerful and configurable than any IDE, plus they are FREE, and available on EVERY platform. You can jump into a project and be coding while your collegues are clicking "Next" 5 times in some wizard and farting around with preference dialogs.

    Plus, you don't need the mouse and you reduce your risk of repetitive stress disorder :)

    Commercial IDEs, who needs all that extra functionality?

    A "perfect" text editor is enough. And jEdit is the best I've used.

    I have seen and tried most IDEs and all are bloated with extra features I never use. The most important features to me are text editing and ease of use. The rest is just plain software bloat caused by creeping featuritis.

    Anyway if I need a feature I can download a plugin.
