Servlet wizard

    Several enhancements are introduced to the Servlet wizard. The most noticeable are:
    • Initialization parameters are now displayed in a table view. The user can easily see parameter's name, value and description.
    • Servlet mappings are now validated. If a user enters an invalid servlet mapping, then an error message appears and the wizard cannot be finished.

    Several limitations are still going to be resolved in the next milestone:
    • XDoclet support
    • Infopop help
    • A wizard page with modifiers, interfaces and abstract method options

    There are now three wizards for creating web artifacts:
