WSO2 Carbon Studio: Tools for WSO2 Middleware Platform

WSO2 is an open source middleware company with a complete and comprehensive SOA middleware platform which is well known as Carbon and a PaaS which is known as Stratos.  But without proper tools, developers who develop their own solutions based on these SOA middleware will not get maximum benefits of them. Therefore, tools can play a significant role in reaching new sights. WSO2 Carbon Studio plays this significant role for WSO2 Carbon stack and Stratos PaaS by allowing new developers to try and evaluate Carbon platform with ease and making tasks easier for existing users.  WSO2 Carbon Studio is a collection of Eclipse plugins which enhances Eclipse IDE functionalities by extending IDE features to support WSO2 Carbon products and Stratos  with many other SOA features. Therefore Eclipse users can download Carbon Studio install it on your Eclipse installation. We decided to use Eclipse because it is completely free and open source and it is the most popular and widely used Java IDE and it will allow us to reach a much wider audience than any other IDE.   Following are the features that are included in the latest Carbon Studio 1.0.4 release.
