CASE STUDY - Developing Web Services with Eclipse

ECLIPSE Case Study

The recently created Web Tools Platform Project extends Eclipse with a set of open source Web service development tools and APIs. This talk gives an overview of the project and focuses on its Web services support. The project is divided into two subprojects: Web Standard Tools and J2EE Standard Tools. The Web Standard Tools subproject contains support for XML Web Services, including tools based on standards defined by W3C, Oasis, WS-I and others. The J2EE Standard Tools subproject contains support for standards defined by JCP, such as JAX-RPC and JSR-109, and for reference implementations of these standards, such as Apache Axis. The project contains both a set of tools for Web service developers and a set of APIs for Web service tool creators. The talk includes a demonstration of the tools.
