How to Install Web Tools Platform (WTP) in eclipse

 

 Eclipse Web Tool Platform or WTP  provides an efficient way to develop JSF pages.  Instead of writing the UI components in the JSF page manually, we can simply drag and drop the UI components from the palette window to the JSF page. This also provides us to see all the supported UI component visually and  option to search a component. The below two items are covered in this section
