<section class="main" name="All About The WTP Project">
The Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project extends the Eclipse platform with tools for
developing J2EE Web applications. The WTP project includes the following tools:
source editors for HTML, Javascript, CSS, SQL, XML, DTD, XSD, and WSDL;
graphical editors for XSD and WSDL; J2EE project natures, builders, and models and a J2EE navigator;
a Web service wizard and explorer, and WS-I Test Tools; and database access and query tools and models.

<!-- section name="Project Scope" link="project-scope.html" icon="../images/Adarrow.gif">
&quot;Web Tools&quot; is big, very big, so big that it could encompass everything. So
we've defined a reasonable scope for the Web Tools Platform Project.

<section class="main" name="WTP Subprojects">
<doublesection name="Web Standard Tools (WST)" link="wst/main.html" icon="../images/Adarrow.gif">
The Web Standard Tools subproject aims to provide common infrastructure available to any
Eclipse-based development environment targeting Web-enabled applications. Within scope
will be tools for the development of three-tier (presentation, business and data logic)
and server publication of corresponding system artifacts. Outside scope will be language
or web framework specific technology, which will be left to other subprojects like the J2EE
Web Tools subproject.<br/><br/>
Tools provided will include editors, validators and document generators for artifacts
developed in a wide range of standard languages (for example, HTML/xHMTL, Web services,
XQueries, SQL, etc.) Supporting infrastructure will likely comprise a specialized workbench
supporting actions such as publish, run, start and stop of Web application code across target
server environments.
<doublesection name="J2EE Standard Tools (JST)" link="jst/main.html" icon="../images/Adarrow.gif">
The initial scope of the J2EE Standard Tools subproject will be to provide a basic
Eclipse plug-in for developing applications based on J2EE 1.4 targeting J2EE-compliant
application servers, as well as a generic J2EE tooling infrastructure for other Eclipse-based
development products.<br/><br/>
Within scope will be a workbench providing a framework for developing, deploying, testing
and debugging J2EE applications on JCP-compliant server environments, as well as an exemplary
implementation of a plug-in for at least one JSR-88 compliant J2EE Server. Included will be a
range of tools simplifying development with J2EE APIs including EJB, Servlet, JSP, JCA, JDBC,
JTA, JMS, JMX, JNDI, and Web Services. This infrastructure will be architected for extensibility
for higher-level development constructs providing architectural separations of concern and technical
abstraction above the level of the J2EE specifications.<br/><br/>
The integrated workbench to be delivered would support use cases such as - Develop a JSP page,
Enhance the "PetStore" blue-print application, Expose a Session Bean as a Web Service.
