Demonstration number: 10Transformed by the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project, Eclipse has been extended beyond its Java roots and is now an open source Web and J2EE development IDE. The WTP adds industrial quality Web and J2EE development tools to the Eclipse platform and provides an extensible framework which can be used as the basis for advanced tooling. From a tools perspective, Web and J2EE objects are contributed as first class citizens in the Eclipse workbench. These objects are used for the creation of Web and J2EE applications using data, server, XML, EJB, J2EE, and Web services tools. From a platform perspective, the WTP includes frameworks that simplify the process of creating new additions to the Eclipse platform such as new servers, XML languages, and Web services implementations. The WTP platform is also customizable using extensions such as the URI resolution framework. The WTP is an open source, collaborative effort between J2EE companies such as IBM, BEA, ObjectWeb, eteration a.s., and JBoss, and other open organizations such as the Apache Software Foundation, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), and the Web Services Interoperability organization (WS-I). In this demonstration you will see the Eclipse Web tools in action and learn about some of the more useful extensions that the platform provides.
