Eclipse Web Tools Platform Project Requirements
WTP LogoWTP Home

The WTP project uses an open process to establish requirements. The process is run by the Requirements Group who report to the WTP PMC. The Requirements Group gathers requirements from all stakeholders, including users, developers, vendors, and the Eclipse Foundation, using a variety of sources such as newsgroups, mailing lists, Bugzilla, and conference calls.


Requirements are summarized in documents that are published on this Web site for public review, and then submitted to the WTP PMC as input to the release planning process.
