The Four Hundred--Eclipse Web Tools Platform Moves Forward with New Release

Source: ITJungle


Companies with J2EE and Web application aspirations owe more than a passing glimpse to the Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) 1.0 release that became generally available in mid-December. For the Eclipse Foundation, an open source community committed to implementation of a universal development platform, this becomes an important stepping-stone along the way to providing a universal development platform for tools integration. Already WTP has been adopted by the leading J2EE suppliers, including IBM, BEA Systems, Borland, JBoss, and ObjectWeb. This full-version release has solidified the platform API for third-party extension and provides documentation improvements to the previous maintenance release.

"Working together with the diverse member companies in the project and the community has helped immensely to produce these platform APIs, which can help to better enable other commercial vendors to leverage WTP tools for their products," says Tim Wagner, the PMC Lead of the Web Tools Project from BEA Systems.
