Eclipse touts Web, JEE development in tools release

Source: JavaWorld

Bolstering development of Web and enterprise Java Enterprise Edition applications in the open source arena, the Eclipse Foundation has released Version 1.0 of its Eclipse Web Tools Platform.

Version 1.0 features the official APIs for the platform, which had been available in previous incarnations with provisional APIs. "We're declaring ourselves ready as a platform for commercial adoption," said Tim Wagner, a project lead for the Web Tools Platform and senior manager on the BEA Systems Workshop team.

Web Tools Platform 1.0 will serve as precursor to a planned release of several Eclipse technologies simultaneously next June, via a bundle now dubbed "Callisto."
