Eclipse Theia is a new project for developing IDE-like applications that run as native desktop apps or in browsers. While its scope is similar to the Eclipse RCP platform the technology stack is very different.

In this session, I will explain Theia’s architecture and the technology it is based on by means of Eclipse, Java and Eclipse RCP concepts and terminology. We will go through the most important ideas and compare them to something you are familiar with. I will point out similarities as well as differences to give you a solid overview of the topic.

If you are familiar with JFace, SWT, e4 and the general Eclipse architecture this session provides you a jump start into how Theia is built and how an RCP application can be developed based on it.
