The RCP framework allows us to create applications really fitting our needs. But we often want it to look different than a classical Eclipse Workbench. We already have our perspectives, our views, but we want them to be presented differently. That's exactly what the Presentations API is designed for.
This talk will present a case study of the customization of an RCP application using the Presentations API and other UI tricks that can be used to build a sexy UI on top of RCP and SWT.
It will highlight the key concepts of the Presentations API, and give a general feedback on how easy it is (or sometimes not!) to customize an Eclipse UI.
