RE: Accessible Java Development Environment

Yes, Eclipse has functionality similar to intellisense. I use it constantly. 
Eclipse also can offer a number of source code options like formatting or code 
templates. You can do things like select a line of code and then press alt+s 
and select surround with try/catch and eclipse will automatically put in the 
try and catch blocks appropriate to the code selected. You can do things like 
define a set of private variables and then have Eclipse automatically generate 
all the public getter and setter methods. One of the code templates I use most 
frequently is the one for putting in System.out.println statement. You can type 
the letters sysout and then press ctrl+space bar and Eclipse will generate 
System.out.println(); and put the cursor between the ( and ). You can select a 
variable name and press alt+r for the refactor menu and select rename. When you 
enter the new name, you can tell eclipse to find and replace the references to 
the old name with the new one. This is especially helpful because you can do 
the same thing for a method name, a class name, or even a package name. If you 
are unsure as to the correct import for a given object but you are sure you 
have the appropriate jars, you can put your cursor on the object name and press 
ctrl+shift+m and Eclipse will find the package that object belongs to and 
insert the import statement at the top of your code. If the object type is 
found in more than one package, you will be prompted to select the one you want 
from a list. For example the object type Date could be either java.util.Date or 
java.sql.Date. 

So, Eclipse offers many, many ways of helping you rapidly develop your 
projects. If you get the version of Eclipse designed for web development, then, 
yes you can develop JSP pages or web services.

Subject: Re: Accessible Java Development Environment

Hi Jay,
wonderful, I am curious about Eclipse. Few questions about it. Does it have 
accessible intellisense like thing? (it really helps in programming, especially 
for case-sensitive languages.) Are We able to develop all types of java 
programs (including JSPs) with Eclipse?
I will also look at it on the link you provided; thanks
