I am new to iplanet. Can anyone tell me which IDE is best suited to develop applications that use Iplanet web server.
The iPlanet Web Server includes a Java container, and expected Java applications to be deployed as packaged war files.
You should be able to use any standard IDE that allows you to create war archives for your application. Something like Netbeans for example.
I've used both Netbeans and Eclipse. As long as you make sure you create the application with the correct JEE standards. You can then
deploy the war file directly.
