We've recently (today) released jboss tools 2.1.0, which is targeted to wtp 2.0.2.

However...   we've had to patch wtp2.0.2 as it did not provide the functionality we required.

Basically, when deciding whether or not to publish a .jar file in the EAR project, wtp tries to open it up and see what type of jar it is. However... if you told it jboss-seam.jar was an ejb, it would crap out while looking for an ejb-jar.xml file. 

Now, *I* know, and *you* know, that in jee5, these descriptors are not necessary. However wtp 2.0.2 does not seem to understand this, and instead just shits all over itself and refuses to even recognize the file as a library (for certain purposes). 

wtp came out with some patches at their patch site, which *still* didn't fix the problem. Rather than try to wait for them to fix it and roll us another build, we made our own patch zip. It's located at:  http://repository.jboss.org/eclipse/webtools/patches/wtp-P-P20080506003122-20080506003122.zip

However, since we've now just today released jboss tools 2.1.0, I suggest downloading that instead of just the patch ;)  

Good luck!
