Subject Re: WAR files and Eclipse
Date Tue, 14 Dec 2004 00:34:09 GMT
I tried eclipse, but man was it hard to get configured properly. I 
wanted to use Eclipse/MyEclipse since I do Perl/C/C++ work as well and 
thought one tool that binds them all, yada yada yada.

I then tried NetBeans and it worked for my environment 'out-of-the-box'. 
It took zero configuration for me. I just pointed it at my existing 
source tree and it built its environment and ant scripts accordingly. I 
really like all of it's editors/interfaces better as well. I would 
rather use 2 tools (NetBeans for java stuff, and eclipse(or my older 
editor) for everything else) than jump through Eclipses' hoops for 
java/J2EE stuff.

Your mileage may vary.
