The Web Tool Platform (WTP) project provides extensible frameworks and exemplary tools to build Web and Java EE applications. This document describes the features and the API set in the Server Tools subproject for the Galileo release.
WTP will support the platforms certified by the Eclipse Platform project. For a list of platforms supported, see Eclipse Target Operating Environments
Internationalization and Localization will be supported.
Each project should be able to work in an international environment, including support for operating in different locales and processing/displaying international data (dates, strings, etc.).
Each project should provide an environment that supports the localization of the technology (i.e. translation). This includes, but is not limited to, ensuring that strings are externalized for easy translation.
Where possible, projects should use an open and transparent process to create, maintain and deliver language packs translated into multiple languages in a timely manner. The primary languages to consider are: English, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Spanish.
Themes and their priorities communicate the main objectives of the project and their importance. These will be prioritized based on the community feedback. New themes could be synthesized from the requirements submitted by the community.
The sections to follow defines the plan items in the Server Tools project. The plan items are grouped under the respective themes where applicable. Each plan item corresponds to a new feature, API or some apsects of the project that needs to be improved. A plan item has an entry in the Eclipse Bugzilla system that has a detailed description of the plan item. Not all plan items represent the same amount of work; some may be quite large, others, quite small. Although some plan items are for work that is more pressing than others, the plan items appear in no particular order. See the corresponding bugzilla items for up-to-date status information on ongoing work and planned delivery milestones.
Features provided by WTP should be simple to use for users with widely-varying backgrounds and skill sets.
Publishing features provided should be simple to use but also provide different level of customization for users, while keeping the right level of control for adopters
Following are plan items that are not yet categorized into a theme.
