Java EE has long enjoyed strong support from all of the major Java IDEs today - Java EE 7 is no exception. I am likely biased but I think NetBeans is the strongest in it's support for modern Java EE. IntelliJ is also popular amongst many Java EE developers. The weakest in terms of Java EE support is Eclipse, providing very basic Java EE 7 support.
So if you are a Java EE developer and a fan of Eclipse, do you have options? Fortunately the answer is a resounding yes. One of the strong choices for you is MyEclipse from Genuitec. MyEclipse adds enhanced support for Java EE 7 APIs like Servlet 3.1, JSF 2.2, EL 3, EJB 3.2, JPA 2.1 and JAX-RS 2. To highlight their support for Java EE 7 the MyEclipse team put together a pretty slick one minute video promoting the updated features in the platform. It's very visual, well worth the minute and a great elevator pitch for Java EE 7 (click here if you can't see the embedded video):
You can find the details for Genuitec's Java EE 7 support on the MyEclipse site. Another good option for Java EE developers on Eclipse is JBoss Tools - it is particularly strong in terms of support for CDI (but I think NetBeans is on par in this regard too - but again I am probably biased :-)).
