    IDE for JBoss Portlet development (2.6.4)

    Amol Desai Newbie

      Hi there,

      I'm another newbie at JBoss. Struggling to find out a right IDE for Portlet development that plan to deploy on JBoss Portal Server 2.6.4. Is there an IDE which will help me stop/start JBoss Portal Server and deploy portlets onto the JBoss Portal server from within IDE? I'm ready to pay if its not free! But please do let me know if something of that sort exists...just like what WebSphere-RAD Portlet development tool/IDE.

      I did look at following options. But didnt help solve my goal.

      1. Eclipse Portal Pack - comes with Glassfish app server. Can I change it to JBoss? And Can I configure to start/stop JBoss Portal Server from it?

      2. JBoss Dev Studio - (I'm even ready to buy if it's less than $200.00) But can I do portlet development and start/stop JBoss Portal Server from it and deploy portlets to the JBoss portal Server (from IDE, just like RAD)?

      I checked all the forums, googled it, but there is no clear answers on what IDE to use in order to develope Portlets using JBoss App and Portal Server. I should be able to start/stop portal server from IDE and should be able to deploy portlets on the JBoss Portal srver. Please do let me know if there is nothing of this sort available at the moment, so that I'll stop searching for it on the internet and concentrate on alternatives.

      Thanks for your precious time and wonderful help.
      Best regards,
      -Amol

          I actually haven't heard about Eclipse Portal Pack before now. From the description on their webpage they should be generic enough to be usefull with JBoss....Let us know!

          start/stop/deploy to the server generically yes.

          Specific portal features no. not at this point.
