Given by the authors of the book "Eclipse Web Tools Platform: Developing Java Web Applications" (Addison-Wesley), this tutorial covers everything you need to know about developing web applications based on the Eclipse WTP.
In this tutorial you will gain an in-depth understanding of the tools that make up WTP, and become a highly productive Java Web application developer. In the tutorial you will develop a SOA ready examplar Java Web application with presentation and service layers. We'll also talk about Web application architecture, the pragmatics of how to set up your development project and pay special attention to Web Services and XML support. The tutorial covers WTP 1.5.
This tutorial is based on the earlier tutorial that was presented during EclipseCon 2006>
