Hundreds of thousands of downloads for RCP, RAP, Equinox, BIRT, and the other projects that make up EclipseRT, are proof that Eclipse is now an established runtime technology. EclipseRT can be used in nearly every environment from embedded devices to the cloud.

But, to harness this versatility you have to overcome a painful Achilles. That is, when you decide to compose a runtime that meets your specific needs, you also need to find your way through a jungle of websites, repositories and wikis - until now. This talk will introduce you to the EclipseRT Packages and the Packaging Tool which will be part of the Juno Release. With the packages as a starting point, we will show you how you can compose a custom runtime with the Runtime Packaging Tool - without having to navigate the jungle.
