The Rich Ajax Platform enables access to RCP applications with a web browser. A common nit has been that the look of a desktop application in a web browser cannot compete with today's stylish web 2.0 applications. But it doesn't have to be that way! The new CSS theming of RAP, combined with workbench theming and some minor adjustments to the workbench window can bring style to the visual appearance of RAP applications.

In a series of snippets and screenshots, this lightning talk will demonstrate the metamorphosis of an ordinary RAP application with the default RAP look into a modern web application that compares with popular web 2.0 sites.

Ralf is a member of the RAP development team at EclipseSource in Karlsruhe, Germany. Ralf's special focus is on the styling capabilities of RAP - he developed RAP's CSS theming subsystem and also contributes to CSS support in e4. His technical interests include agile development practices and programming languages, while his right brain loves typefaces, colors, and user interface design.

This session is part of the curated collection of short talks titled
"Runtime Deployment "
