Web Services Tools in the Eclipse Web Tools Platform
Web services are considered a leading implementation of a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which are components that provide services over a network in open, interoperable, platform neutral standards. The Web services tools in Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) enables users to easily create WS-I compliant WSDL files, create Web services using Axis and Axis2 Web service runtimes, and test the Web services.
