Is there a tool in JOSM to easily discover if you have a 'closed' or 'open' loop?

Make sure the "Selection list window" (Alt-Shift-T) is visible in the right column. Then select the way you are interested in and look at the icon in front of it.

If the ways are part of a multipolygon, then you can also use the relation editor. It uses the same icons for individual ways and a similar set for loops formed by multiple ways.
