The Eclipse modular platform is traditionally thought of as a platform for developing rich client applications, but in fact the Eclipse application container can be used to launch most any type of application. The Eclipse application container is an implementation the Application Admin specification from the OSGi Alliance. In this talk we will describe how you can develop other non-traditional Eclipse applications, such as headless or server-side applications, and how Application Admin can be used to launch and control your applications.
