Best Practice to manage J2EE projects in eclipse [message #206111] Sun, 23 December 2007 11:10 Go to next message

Hello all,

I've worked with Eclipse some years ago and I was very impressed. Due to
changes in my job I had to do development in C# and C++. So I switched
over to VS.NET. But now, I have to develop a J2EE application and hence,
use Eclipse again. But now my Question: I've asked myself: What is the
best way to manage and work with J2EE Projects in Eclipse? Eclipse now
supports very well J2EE Projects like 'Enterprise Application Project',
'Dynamic Web-Project', 'Utility Projects' etc. Ok, that's good. Eclipse
also supports JBoss Application Server and Debugging. But it also supports
ant.

So, I would like to know which 'Tools' you use? Many projects out there
use Ant for building, deployment and all other project related tasks. Is
the J2EE support not as well as I think? What about Maven? So to summarize
it: How do you work with J2EE projects in Eclipse? Ant? Maven? Eclipse
J2EE Tools? And why do you use this solution? Personal preference?
Technical benefits?

Thanks a lot.

Andy

It depends on your environment. Ultimately if you are doing integrated
building, and deployments, you'll probably want either an Ant or maven
build script to handle everything. But you should also leverage the
convience and debugging features that the J2EE tools provide from the
web tools platform. If you just need to quickly deploy an ear, or war,
you can use the built in Export options.

With out knowing specifics about your development and deployment
environment, it's hard to give a specific answer, beyond it depends.
