j2ee standard tools components
This document describes the component structure for the J2EE Standard Tools subproject. As the name of this subproject implies, our scope includes J2EE standards, such as JSP, servlet, EJB and related standards which are defined by the JCP. This is in contrast to the Web Standard Tools subproject whose scope is Web and related standards defined by organizations such as W3C, OASIS, and ANSI. One of the main organizing principles of this subproject is to group all work related to a given standard within a single component. For example, there are components for JSP editing and J2EE projects. The other main organizing principle is to create a component for each major framework. For example, there are components for Server tools and the Web service wizard. Finally, there are components for related sets of code that do not fall into either of the two main categorizations. For example, there is a common component for utilities and other shared infrastructure code.
All JST components are stored in the Eclipse CVS repository at dev.eclipse.org in the path /home/webtools/jst/components.
