This firstPress title demonstrates the functionality and benefits of Eclipse RAP as well as shows the sweet spots of RAP, especially focusing on single sourcing RCP and web applications, which can be a huge cost saver. This book also covers possible issues that might prevent you from successfully deploying RAP. Learn what is required to deploy RAP applications. Get to know how to utilize RAP features. Develop single sourced RCP and web applications. Determine when to use RAP or when to choose a different framework.
Who this book is for This book is suitable for IT managers, technical leads, and developers. While the focus is on concepts and understanding the technology, developers can also find insights on how to solve specific issues. For IT managers, it shows how RAP is able to save development costs, but also presents limitations of the framework. The reader is expected to have at least basic Eclipse RCP knowledge and some complementary Java or web application development experience.

Eclipse Rich Client Platform, 2nd Edition
The authors fully reveal the power of Eclipse as a desktop application development platform; introduce important new improvements in Eclipse 3. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors cover building, refining, and refactoring prototypes; customizing user interfaces; adding help and software management features; and building, branding, testing, and shipping finished software. They demonstrate current best practices for developing modular and dynamically extensible systems, using third-party code libraries, packaging applications for diverse environments, and much more. For Java programmers at all levels of experience, this book Introduces important new RCP features such as p2, Commands, and Databinding Thoroughly covers key RCP-related technologies such as Equinox, SWT, JFace, and OSGi Shows how to effectively brand and customize RCP application look-and-feel Walks through user interface testing for RCP applications with SWTBot Illuminates key similarities and differences between RCP and conventional plug-in development Hands-on, pragmatic, and comprehensive, this book offers all the real-world, nontrivial code examples working developers need-as well as "deep dives" into key technical areas that are essential to your success.

Eclipse Rich Client Platform
What is a Rich Client? Wikipedia does a terrible job of defining Rich Client. In fact, it just redirects you to Fat Client , which I think this is wrong. In many ways, a rich client is very similar to a fat client: both provide a rich user experience using time-honoured user-interface components with great graphical features, drag and drop and the like. Both run interesting behaviour on the client workstation contrast with the browser which tends to run view rendering and minor application-specific logic on the workstation. Both rich clients and fat clients have an implied server component though this is not necessarily the case as it is possible to build completely standalone applications with both. Perhaps one of the bigger differences, at least at some conceptual level, is that rich clients tend to leverage relatively interesting backend resources like an application server; fat clients tend to connect directly to databases.
