Right now I'm building the war file in eclipse, copying the war file to a local Jboss deployment, then setting up a remote debugger and connecting to the jboss instance thru eclipse...
I would like to automate this process so that there's no war file, no deployment or remote debugging. I want Jboss to be integrated into Eclipse by way of a plugin (preferably GPL or LGPL)... !!
I'm using: Java 1.4
(I've looked at JBoss-IDE, it looks very promising. But I wanted to check with the experts before I jump into anything.)
JBOSS IDE IS basicaly eclipse + the plugins you want. It facilitates building and deploying your war and ear files and enables also local debugging.
