This plugin is the subset of the Eclipse Web Tools, prodiving support for J2EE application servers. It includes:
- Wizards to create web application projects, including Dynamic Web Projects (projects with JSP and Servlets), EJB projects, and other J2EE-type projects,
- The infrastructure to manage (start, deploy, debug) application server, as well as the definition for most common servers,
- Wizards and editors to create and manage J2EE components such as servlets, EJBs, JSP files, and Axis Web Services
Note that the dependency on Eclipse Database tools must be respected if you plan to use the EJB Annotations UI. In all other cases, you do not need to install that plugin.

To use the Eclipse J2EE tools, we suggest that you install a Java Application Server. The easiest to install and use is Apache Tomcat. You can download a recent version from the Apache Tomcat 5 Downloads page. Just install it and start Eclipse.
To start with the J2EE Tools, you can create a new J2EE project (Dynamic Web Project):
- Open the File > New > Project menu, and select the Web > Dynamic Web Project wizard. Click Next
- Enter a name for your project in the Project name field
- Although not required, it is best to select a Target Runtime. Click the New button next to the Target Runtime field
- In the Target Runtime wizard, select the Apache > Apache Tomcat 5.5 item and click Next. In the following dialog, locate the directory for the installation of Tomcat. Click Finish.
- Back in the Dynamic Web Project dialog, click Finish
- If you are connected to the internet, you will be prompted to download some files. Accept.
- You will be prompted to switch to the J2EE Perspective. Click Yes.
