The Web Tools Project (WTP) by the Eclipse Foundation is a set of open source tools that substantially reduce the time required for the development of Web applications, EJBs, and Web services. The WTP's current version is 0.7.1 and version 1.0 is coming later this year. The framework provides wizards and tools to create EJBs, Web components such as servlets and JSPs, and Web services using the Axis engine. It also provides source editors for HTML, JavaScript, CSS, JSP, SQL, XML, DTD, XSD, and WSDL; graphical editors for XSD, WSDL, J2EE project builders, models, and a J2EE navigator; a Web service wizard, explorer, and WS-I Test Tools; and database access, query tools, and models. In this article I'll show you how to develop and deploy a JSP Web application with WTP in less than an hour. I'll also cover the creation and deployment of a basic servlet and editing JSP ... (more)

Java Feature — Bringing Together Eclipse,WTP, Struts, and Hibernate

In the article "Creating Web Applications with the Eclipse WTP" (http://jdj.sys-con.com/read/152270.htm ), we created a Web application using Eclipse Web Tools Project, the Tomcat application server, and the MySQL database server. That application (DBTest) was good, however, it had some limitations: Java Server Pages (JSP) names were hard-coded inside the servlet code SQL was also hard-coded in the command classes Fortunately, two interesting solutions can address these problems. The first problem can be addressed using the Open Source Struts framework, which separates an appli... (more)

How to Bring Eclipse 3.1, J2SE 5.0, and Tomcat 5.0 Together

Eclipse is the most popular Open Source IDE on the Java market and the latest 3.1 release supports all the new language elements of J2SE 5.0. In this article I'll show you see how to create a Web project that has Java classes located in different packages and how to use ANT to build this project and JUnit to test it. I assume that you have J2SE 5.0 installed and are familiar with Ant and JUnit. Building Java 5.0 Applications with Eclipse We'll build a servlet that will demo some new Java 5.0 features and do some basic tasks like creating a session to track user visits to multiple W...

Developing Web Services "Eclipse Web Tools Project"

Today's trend is to integrate existing systems in a standard way to make disparate implementations interoperate. Web Services and XML came along with the ability to provide a standard communication interface between these systems, as well as the standard description language - WSDL - the Web Services Description Language that lets those systems define the structure of the services they're providing. Web Services are built using three classic components: SOAP - Simple Object Access Protocol - the XML-based communication protocol for sending data using Web Services. WSDL - Web Ser... (more)
