2) All = *all* plugins - nothing more; nothing less. The other zip files are simply there to allow you to get the individual parts if you don't need them all.

3) All the plugins. And no you don't need to download the individual plugins if you download the distribution that has all plugins.

4) JSF and JPA are *not* part of Webtools 1.5.1. They are only available as a seperate download. (if that has changed in a .1 release then please give me a link that shows it). Note, nothing prevents you from downloading and installing these additonal plugins.

5) Difference between Hibernate Tools and Dali JPA ? Long story short: Dali JPA is purely focused on standard JPA annotation editing and it is an Eclipse Project intended for 3rd party vendors to built upon.

Hibernate Tools is our toolset which includes support for hibernate.xml, hibernate annotations and JPA annotations. There is code generation, query execution, code completion in mappings and code, etc. 

Currently the two tools are complementary (even though JPA also have a *small* part of DDL generation) and when we get the possibility to include Dali we probably will. 

Difference between Hibernate Tools and EJB Tools ? Hibernate Tools is for using Hibernate/JPA (persistence) and EJB3 Tools is for doing EJB3 development (session beans etc.). EJB3 > JPA

JBossAS-Tools: "JBossAS Tools (WTP based adapter) 1.0.0.Beta2 (standalone)." just as it says on the download page. Meaning the WTP based adapter for controlling/using JBossAS.

You don't need to try every single download; just get the *all* plugins download.

p.s. I'm sure Marshall would like help on get the page better documented - it is opensource after all; contributions are always welcome.
