The Eclipse RAP project enables developers to build rich, AJAX-enabled Web applications by using the Eclipse development model, plug-ins and a Java-only API.
The tutorials demos a sample application highlighting the implementation of eclipse bundles in a server context, the contribution of views, menus, etc to a web workbench and the usage of RWT (RAP Widget Toolkit) to populate the views with UI elements. The tutorial will provide guidance on how to architect plugins (bundles) in a way that they can be reused between RCP and RAP deployment.
