We're just about to take delivery of JBuilder 4.0. I went to the launch of
it and managed to have a quick play with it too. It has some very nice JSP
features including full debugging/breakpoints, code insight, code
completion. About time something could do all that, and let me debug my
EJB's at the same time :-).
One thing I'm not sure of is how well the Struts tags will integrate into
this kind of environment, however hopefully someone will be able to write an
OpenTools add-on that can handle Struts, or even better, arbitrary 3rd party
tags?

Craig - you mentioned a while ago that you were in talks wrt Struts
integration with an IDE/design tool of some sort. Any hints/timeframes on
this? Even a teaser like "making good progress, expect to see an
announcement shortly" ;-). I was guessing it had something to do with
Dreamweaver Ultradev (which wouldn't interest me), but if there was some
kind of integration with JBuilder I would be extremely interested.
