Hi All,

We have an Eclipse RCP application based on eclipse 3.1 version. Now we are planning to move to eclipse 3.4. Also we are planning to move from java 1.5 to java 1.6. Will there be any impact because of these up gradations? If yes what are they? Or what are the things that we need to analysis before moving?

Thanks& Regards,
G. Kamal

You can check out the Migration Guide. For example currently on
http://help.eclipse.org I found "Platform Plug-in Developer Guide > 3.5
Plug-in Migration Guide" that covers 3.2 -> 3.5 If you look at older
documentation, like Europa http://help.eclipse.org/help33/index.jsp it
might have 3.1 to 3.2. The Migration guide lists the major
incompatibilities.

In addition to that, if you use PDE build a lot has changed since 3.1
(move to p2) and if you provided updates via Update Manager that's
changed significantly as well.

You are going to have to iterate through any problems your system has.
Start with 1) can I download 3.5.2 and load my RCP product into the
workspace with 3.5.2 as the target platform.
