  1. Arun, I’m confused with WSIT installation on NetBeans 5.5.1–do we need to install the WSIT plug-in modules separately as [1] indicates, or are they already part of the Enterprise Pack, as [2] says? (I certainly hope #2 is the case–anything to simplify things…) I’ve already installed the Enterprise pack but can’t seem to see the plug-in modules as shown in the WSIT tutorial. Thanks, Glen

    [1] (see instruction #8)
    (Quote: “Enterprise Pack for Netbeans IDE 5.5.1 or the WSIT plug-in modules for Netbeans IDE 5.5.1″)

  2. I recommend to install the plugin separately, because newer versions contain latest bug fixes.
    Plans with Enterprise Pack have changed since M4, so for NetBeans 5.5.1 you have to go through the manual separate install of WSIT modules.
    For NetBeans 6 (under development, Beta to be released soon), WSIT modules are already part of NetBeans standard distribution, so there’s no manual step required.
