Eclipse is a full-featured open source software development platform. A Sybase Web Services plug-in to Eclipse provides developers and administrators the ability to manage Web services contained in EAServer. Throughout this book, Eclipse and the Sybase Web Services plug-in together are referred to as the Web Services Toolkit development tool (WST development tool).
The WST development tool provides graphical administration facilities for Web services, including support for development, deployment, and runtime monitoring of Web service-related statistics and messages.
You can develop Web services and create test clients for third-party Web services. However, you can deploy Web services to the runtime engine (EAServer, for example) and create test clients for Web services deployed to EAServer only if you are connected to a running server.
