Running Eclipse 4 Application on RAP - Status and Challenges
The new application platform Eclipse 4 was designed to make the UI renderer replaceable. This architecture should make it simple to run Eclipse 4 applications on RAP, a popular Eclipse web framework wit SWT and JFace API. The Eclipse RAP and Eclipse 4 teams have started a shared effort to find out what has to be done to run E4 applications on RAP.
Join this talk to learn about the Eclipse Renderer Framework and how it can be leveraged to replace SWT with RAP as renderering target. We will also talk about the challenges we are facing in creating a RAP support for Eclipse 4 and show our current prototypes.
