I am looking for some guidance on how to setup an environment to create and test a zimlet on my laptop.

I have found these three links to be helpful
Zimbra Documentation Links - Zimbra :: Wiki
Zimlet Developers Guide - Zimbra :: Wiki

The last link lists what is needed to develop a zimlet but it does not have any information other than the required programs.

I understand the zimbra portion of what I need, what I need help with is the JavaScript portion.

I am going to write a zimlet that will allow a user to drop a calendar onto it then pass the data to the JavaScript. The JavaScript will parse out the body of the appointment then make a SOAP connection to our server and add the information in.

For reference I am use to programming with vi.

Any help with the Eclipse side would be great.
