Michael Scharf

In this tutorial we describe the overall architecture of an RCP application and its specific components. Participants will learn and perform the steps to build their own RCP application. We will show how to develop a minimal application plug-in, add a feature including custom branding, and package the application for deployment. We will show how to deliver updates using an update site and the update manager. Prerequisites: Participants should have prior knowledge of Java and bring a laptop with Eclipse 3.2 installed. Note: we did the same tutorial at EclipseCon 2005 and 2006. As always, updated to the current Eclipse version.
