Wigets is Great - but What IDE?

We are trying to move forward with our ActiveWidgets development.

The biggest stumbling blocks is the lack of decent IDE.

We are hoping to use the new Javascript Development Toolkit (JSDT) that comes with Eclipse 3.4.

We aren't really that skilled with Eclipse yet and I was hoping to get some tips on how we can get the real time debugger in JSDT.

Has anyone managed to get this to work? Has anyone got any alternatives.

I can imagine we'll be able to use ActiveWidgets seriously until we can edit it sensibly with something other than NOTEPAD!!

I've seen IDEs for similar products and they aren't that useful! The reason is that they hide what's going on behind the scenes.

I would suggest sticking with a standard IDE (I use Homesite and Eclipse) but using it to edit the raw javascript.

I love Activewidgets but I have to echo others' comments that the documentation it in need of a review.
