Web Services Explorer in Eclipse

Web services explorer in eclipse can be used to browse UDDI registries, to parse services' WSDLs, and even to invoke service operations by sending them SOAP messages. It is implemented as a web application running on eclipse' embeded application server. So I am thinking to turn it into a standalone web application to act as Grimoires' web-based interface. As Chris Brealey pointed out, the WTP team also has this idea, but it is not easy to do this and the WTP team simply has no resource to be allocated on this. I played web services explorer today. It relies on quite a lot eclipse plug-ins. Even it could be turned into a standalone web application, it would be of a large footprint.
