Web Services Validation Tools Open Source Project at Eclipse

In the March 26 telecon [1], we discussed creating a WSDL 1.2 Validator. I 
suggested we create an Open Source project at Eclipse to do this. The Web 
Services Validation Tools Project [2] has now been created and I invite 
all interested people to contribute. Start by downloading the code and 
trying out its capabilities. All discussion of the code should be done at 

The project has been seeded by BeaconIT, Parasoft, and IBM. The 
contributed code includes WS-I Test Tools, a WSDL 1.1 Validator, and 
integration of these tools into the Eclipse IDE. WS-I members will 
continue work on this code at Eclipse. The tools can be run from the 
command line or the IDE. I think we should also develop Ant tasks.

We can use the WSDL 1.1 Validator as a starting point, although my current 
thinking is to create a new WSDL 1.2 object model that closely follows the 
Abstract Model in the WSDL 1.2 spec.

Could David Booth please add a link from the W3C Web site to this project?
