Hi,

I do't know if e4 has anything to offer me here, but I want to
investigate a possiblity of building the next generation of our RCP
product with e4.

The Modeled UI bit I have already tried and find it to be wonderful.

However, since our application is built up of several
subsystems/modules, which all can be thought of as sort of
"applications" of their own (providing services to both internal and
external consumers), I wanted to experiment with treating these as first
class applications in Eclipse/OSGI and try use Eclipse Application Model
(see [1]) to control their startup.

What I wanted to know is if e4 has anything to offer me in this regard.
What I would particularily like to have is to build up a root
IEclipseContext for the main/launcher application and have each
subapplication it's own IEclipseContext with a parent pointing to the
"main application context".

Is this possible? Is this necessary? Does this make sanse?
