It is getting common now that products need a web UI for at least part of their functionality, but also have to be integrated into Eclipse. The question is, is there any opportunity to share code between the web UI and Eclipse's desktop UI?
As part of the e4 project, we have explored how web UI components can be embedded in Eclipse as first-class views or editors. This tutorial will go into detail on what's involved when you want to embed web UIs in Eclipse.
