<h1>Object Teams Development Tooling</h1>

The OTDT is a development environment for the
<a href="http://wiki.eclipse.org/OTJ">OT/J</a> programming language.
</p>
<p>
Based on the Eclipse Java development tools (JDT), it includes the following key features, which
are explained in the next chapters.<br/>

the OTDT is built on top of and extends the JDT.
