The setup and maintenance of the build system of a commercial RCP application is a challenging task. At EclipseCon 2008 we presented on all the steps that are associated with this task and describe the solutions that we adopted for the MOTODEV JavaME Tools. See talk: The Build System of Commercial RCP Application: A Case Study
Ganymede was released on the end of June and it introduced a couple of concepts with its new provisioning system that have a lot of impact on the RCP build process. This talk will discuss some of those new concepts, such as touchpoints and binary updates and see how to migrate from an Europa based build to make use of those concepts.
In addition, it will also discuss some interesting new requirements that were almost impossible to be implemented on Europa and are now available on a Ganymede-based RCP. One example of that is to hide all Eclipse features that are used to assemble your RCP.
The target audiences of this talk in anyone that current works on the development of RCP applications on top of Ganymede.
