[jboss-user] [Beginners Corner] - Using Eclipse for JBOSS AS Project? (with Facelets, JSF etc)

Hi all - what version of Eclipse is recommended for app development under JBOSS AS 5. The app will use JSF, Facelets, EJB3 and maybe SEAM.

I have downloaded the latest Eclipse Galileo (JEE version). However I'm not clear on what project type to create.. 'New Project' menu command lists project types like EJB, Java EE, Web. Or is there a separate version of Eclipse I should use for JBOSS development?

Another question: (re edit, compile, deploy cycle) - Can I keep JBOSS AS running constantly and copy new .ear files to its deploy directory as I compile code edits. I think that will work and JBOSS will hot deploy the new build and start running it (hopefully..)

But how do I then set breakpoints in the Eclipse Debugger to use the IDE debugger to debug code? Or should I be using the 'Debug' command from within Eclipse to somehow start the application in debug mode?
