IBM WebSphere Application Server Developer Tools for Eclipse (or simply “WDT” to those who use it) is a lightweight set of tools for developing applications for WebSphere Application Server. Here are just a few of the things we love about WDT.
We’ve got you covered
Provides a core set of tools for developing Java™ EE (including JPA and EJB), OSGi, and Web 2.0 applications. This includes form-based XML editors for configuration and deployment descriptors, advanced refactoring, annotation support, validation, and quick fixes. Developers will feel right at home.
Web and mobile made easy
A liberating experience
WDT has a full set of tools to make developing applications for the WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile even easier. To get the most out of the Liberty profile, WDT includes streamlined tools and a powerful server configuration editor. As you deploy applications to the server, the tools also dynamically add features that are required by the application to the server configuration.
The Liberty profile can be downloaded and installed directly from within WDT. This makes it easy to set up your entire development environment without ever leaving the tools.
Works where you do
Just like the Liberty runtime, the tools are designed to run on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X, and on any Java 6 or higher JVM. Easy to install from the Eclipse Marketplace. Always available, when and where you need it.
