The Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) provides a framework and tools to develop rich clients and web clients from a single code base, either from scratch or by migrating an existing RCP codebase. This talk will mainly cover several aspects of what's new in the 1.3 (Helios) release of RAP including great features as
- Drag n' Drop
- Interaction Design API
- Rounded Corners, Gradients and other theming-related improvements
- Browser History support
- Eclipse Help System support
The talk will provide a big picture of what is possible with RAP today and how to use each of these new features. The features itself will each be demonstrated with a small demo and implementation hints where appropriate.
