It is a pity that RIM killed the MDS studio development tool. Can anyone from RIM tell me if they are planning of incorporating some of the features from MDS Studio into widgets e.g given a webservice make it generate pages for the input and output forms without having to do any nuts and bolts programming with xml and soap etc..

You dont need an specific tool for developing widgets, you can use eclipse, visual studio, notepad, etc etc... what I would really recommend is the usage of a tool such as Ant to automate some tasks. Also, about web services and/or soap in widgets I really wouldnt recommend so, I'd rather use Json which is much smaller, which in the case of mobile devices, makes a lot of difference.
