I am new to jboss. I want to know what kind of development suites do people recommend using for developing web apps that run on jboss. I plan to use eclipse ide. I am not sure if jboss app server can be embedded as a test server in eclipse.
Look for JBossIDE on the Jboss Wiki. It has a nice tutorial and it will help you learn JBoss as well as use an IDE like Eclipse.
