Transform RCP applications to web applications using RAP
The Rich Client Platform (RCP) enables you to build rich desktop applications. The Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) lets you build Ajax-enabled web applications using the Eclipse development model. With the assistance of RAP, existing RCP applications can be run as web applications with only minor changes. In this article, explore the key features of RAP, and follow example code for a simple HTML viewer to learn how to migrate RCP applications to the web using RAP.

Mobile workforce operational support using Eclipse RCP
The modern workforce is increasingly mobile, with many jobs performed in the field, far from standard workplace tools, such as desk-bound computers and wired networks. Even for more mobile devices, connectivity is limited to wireless accessible areas. Learn about the development of a Mobile Workforce Framework based on the open source Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) for supporting teams who must work in remote areas with limited or no network access. This article focuses on the value of a common open source platform to myriad remote teams, the reduction in paper and travel to perform synchronization, and improved paper-free access to critical information when "off the net." The Mobile Workforce Framework project, also known as Maestro, illustrates how many architectural drivers like synchronization, plug-in functionality, and offline support are met by the using the Eclipse RCP.

Brand your Eclipse RCP applications
This article provides step-by-step guidelines on how to package and manage a Rich Client Platform (RCP) application as a product with your own branding by using Eclipse's Production Configuration and PDE. Besides common concepts such as splash screen and an icon file's color and size, this article also introduces advanced branding aspects of production configuration: the RCP executable file and its configuration file, progress bar and message, RCP window image, About dialog and welcome page (i.e., introduction). With this article, you can grasp the main skills on encapsulating your RCP application as a distributable product, independent of Eclipse platform.

Understanding how Eclipse plug-ins work with OSGi
The core of the Eclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) applications is driven by an implementation of the Open Services Gateway Initiative (OSGi) specification. This article illustrates Eclipse's relationship with OSGi by describing what a plug-in is in terms of the Eclipse platform and traces the evolution of plug-ins from Eclipse V2.1 through today's OSGi-based implementation. It also explains the OSGi manifest.mf file options, along with the additions provided through Eclipse.

Using Eclipse Ganymede to develop for the desktop, Web and mobile devices, Part 1: Developing for the Rich Client Platform, the Ganymede way
The Ganymede release of the Eclipse IDE includes 24 separate projects, covering a wide range of technologies. Many of these projects are mature, and this release provides incremental improvements to those. But Ganymede also includes a number of new projects that introduce new technologies to the Eclipse platform. In this three-part "Using Eclipse Ganymede to develop for the desktop, Web and mobile devices" tutorial series, we will cover the following new Ganymede features: RCP, RAP, and eRCP, which allow you to develop software for the desktop, Web, and mobile platforms, respectively, with one common code base; Subversion for version control; and p2 for update and installation. Here in Part 1, we will use the mature Rich Client Platform (RCP) to develop an application for the desktop using Subversion for source control, and we will package and distribute the application using p2.
