Hi,

I can't seem to find any help with what should be an easy question. I want to begin creating a website. I understand that many of you may cringe at what I am about to say, but I spent the money on a webserver and began building it using Dreamweaver under a 30 day trial. That trial expired and I realized I could do pretty much the same stuff using eclipse. I just don't seem to be able to find any support for this, or any beginning tutorials. One thing that I'm pretty sure eclipse should be able to do is automatically connect to my webserver and load all the work that I am doing. I have no idea how to do this and everything I have been seeing so far is about 200 levels of difficulty than this. If someone could please point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.

-Dave

This is because, unless I've been totally blind for many years as an
Eclipse user, Eclipse doesn't offer anything even remotely similar thing
to Dreamweaver.

I do a lot of exactly what you're talking about, but I use vim to write
HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I use Eclipse to write web services, servlets,
JSP, JSF, etc. Eclipse does have some great JavaScript tools; I just
don't happen to use them because my JavaScript needs aren't that ambitious.

Eclipse is also insanely great for writing stuff in PHP.

I have never seen a way for Eclipse to "connect to a webserver" for
downloading pages (HTML files) to it. The rest of us create WAR files,
zips, tarballs, etc. which we transport to a webserver via scripts, by
hand, etc. I maintain my web pages via WinSCP or ssh/scp (from Linux).

So, no Eclipse doesn't directly support great web page design and editing.

If I'm wrong in any of this and just haven't been paying attention, I
hope someone else will comment.

There are alternatives to Dreamweaver, but that discussion isn't
properly one for this forum. I'd answer that anyway, but in fact, I
would never consider writing web pages in anything else but vim, so I'm
just not a good person to comment on the topic.

Good luck,

Russ Bateman

I just use a good text editor with ftp and syntax highlighting
capabilities for this. UltraEdit is my editor of choice, but there are
plenty of others out there as well.

Thanks for the reply, but I was able to find exactly what I was looking for.

Aptana is what I needed. It provides server synchronization, code completion, code folding, anything you can think of.

Can you share the link? I'm always on the lookout for better tools.
