This talk introduces the Rich Ajax Platform (RAP), an eclipse runtime technolgy for the server side. RAP enables developers to build rich, Ajax-enabled Web applications by using the Eclipse development model. Developers can take advantage of OSGI bundle (plug-ins) technology and use subsets of the well known Eclipse workbench extension points, JFace and SWT. The session will provide an architecture overview of RAP and a brief introduction for getting started with RAP development. We will further look into the new and noteworthy features of the current 1.1 development cycle and discuss best practices for complementing exisiting RCP applications with RAP. The session will conclude with an outlook for the roadmap of the next major release.

Frank is Software Developer at Innoopract Informationssysteme GmbH and works currently on the Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) Project as technical lead. He has been development lead of Innoopract's W4Toolkit (which has been the base of the code donation for the RAP Project) and W4T Eclipse - a visual web application development tool for W4Toolkit. He started developing Eclipse plugins in 2002 and has expert knowledge in architecture of Eclipse-based systems, Eclipse Platform API™s and IDE-Development.
