<h2><a name="Developmentoptionsandtools-Eclipse"></a>Eclipse</h2>

<p>Eclipse is an open source IDE for Java developers and consists of Java Development
Tools. Eclipse is written primarily in Java.  Eclipse community is focused on building an
open development platform comprised of extensible frameworks, tools and runtimes for building,
deploying and managing software across the lifecycle.  Users can extend its functionality
by installing plugins written for Eclipse.  For more details visit <a href=""
class="external-link" rel="nofollow">Eclipse web site</a>, and for how to install
Eclipse see <a href="/confluence/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=GMOxDOC30&amp;title=Installing+Eclipse&amp;linkCreation=true&amp;fromPageId=20645385"

Tools Platform (WTP)</h2>

<p>The Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) project extends the Eclipse platform with tools
for developing Web and Java EE applications. It includes source and graphical editors for
a variety of languages, wizards and built-in applications to simplify development, and tools
and APIs to support deploying, running, and testing applications.  For more details visit

Eclipse Plugin</h2>

<p>The Geronimo Eclipse Plugin (GEP) provides integration between Geronimo and the Web
Tools Platform (WTP). With this plugin, users will be able to use the features in WTP to create,
deploy and debug applications on Geronimo.</p>
