Akuiteo is a french company that publishes Akuiteo ERP, a software management platform for services companies.
Our main front-end product is an Eclipse RCP-based application. This product was launched in 2007, and our last technical migration (from RCP 3.5 to RCP 3.7) occured in 2012.
After 5 years, it was time to enter in a new era by changing the engine and migrating to e4 !
I'll present the different steps, the doubts, the pitfalls and eventually the success !
Because this release was decided to be Version 4.0, we decided to update the GUI, make it modern and more user-friendly. For this, we used the fantastic customization possibilties of e4 and our experience in developpment of RCP components.
