The initial scope of the J2EE Standard Tools subproject will be to provide a to provide common infrastructure for developing applications based on J2EE 1.4 targeting J2EE-compliant application servers, as well as a more generic J2EE tooling infrastructure for other Eclipse-based development products.
Tools provided will include a workbench 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
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".
