You can find some background on IBM's involvement and exit see the following ...|
In my humble opinion EDT is an excellant tool to develop web applications. IBM took their implementation of EGL (from RBD and EGLCE) and (again, in my opinion) made it better. The syntax and configuration in EDT certainly makes more sense to me than it does in RBD and EGLCE, it seems more intuitive.
They also just, only just, started the implementation of OO by the introduction of classes, if anyone knows how this works in its current form I'd love to know.
My gut feeling is that there just wasn't enough outside interest in EDT for IBM to continue to invest. Is IBM's involvement a strict requirement? No, I don't think so, but I do think it would take a serious commitment by a company or group of developers to move it forward. I also believe (only guesswork) that if there was some serious interest in moving the tooling forward then IBM would consider re-engaging with the project.
All we need is for someone to show some serious interest. Anyone?
