Using JBoss Tools 2.0

If you are looking for the same basic JSF/RichFaces tools and features that you had in Exadel Studio Pro, but would like to use Eclipse 3.3 and the better and stable JBoss Tools 2.0, here is how to do it:

  1. Download Web Tools Platform All-In-One Packages 2.0.1
  2. Download JBoss Tools 2.0 (all plug-ins)
  3. Unzip both set of plug-ins into the same directory
  4. Download Tomcat server (you probably already have it)
  5. Register Tomcat server:
    1. Start Eclipse
    2. Select Window/Open Other…/Serves/Server
    3. Right click in Servers view and select New…
    4. Follow the wizard steps to add a server

    That’s all, you are up and running.

    Please note that there is a difference between JBoss Tools and JBoss Developer Studio. With JBoss Developer Studio you get everything out-of-box and an easy-installer. You can read about the differences here
