Hello

I'd like to ask if Riena can be considered production ready. Were there any non-trivial apps developed using this framework.

Also, for some reason I can't seem to find any API reference or extension point reference for Riena. Would anybody kindly point me to these rather important pieces of documentation. Thanks.

Riena exists for several years now and we use it outselves for a number of rather large projects. So its definitly
production ready. If you install Riena into the target platform, the available extension points with documentation are
visible to you. We also have a getting started section in the wiki a section for some of the base concepts
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Riena

We didnt generate a complete javadoc and publish that somewhere but all the java API and the extension schemas have
documentation (java doc or extension schema doc).

thanks. I just have played around with a test installation of Riena but unfortunately I've run into some problems:

as far as org.eclipse.riena.sample.app.client

I couldn't find a way to install one of its dependencies org.pushingpixels.trident_1.2.0.v20100204-1500.jar so I copied it from the zipped target platform you provide. Is there a way to grab it from some update site. I think it's part of E4 but installing the whole E4 just to run a "halloworld" app seems like an overkill to me. there's another small problem with this sample app: WARNING [main] org.eclipse.riena.ui.swt.utils.ImageStore Image resource "arrowright.png" not found in:
mailto:initial@reference :file:plugins/org.eclipse.riena.ui.swt_2.0.0.v20100615_2_0_0 .jar/icons

There are only down and up arrows there.

Other than that this sample runs ok.

Now the real problem:

When I try to run riena.demo.client I get a huge error, here's just a clip:
ERROR [main] org.eclipse.riena.internal.core.exceptionmanager.SimpleExcep tionHandlerManager Unhandled event loop exception
java.lang.ClassCastException: org.eclipse.ui.internal.handlers.HandlerServiceFactory cannot be cast to org.eclipse.ui.services.AbstractServiceFactory
at org.eclipse.ui.internal.services.WorkbenchServiceRegistry.lo adFromRegistry(WorkbenchServiceRegistry.java:131)
at org.eclipse.ui.internal.services.WorkbenchServiceRegistry.ge tService(WorkbenchServiceRegistry.java:101)
at org.eclipse.ui.internal.services.ServiceLocator.getService(S erviceLocator.java:174)

The server seems to be running fine.

Can you please shed some light on this?

So just to understand what you where doing is this:

You took an Eclipse 3.6 IDE, followed the instruction on http://wiki.eclipse.org/Riena_Downloads_–_Installation_– _Setup
(Set up target platform for Riena apps)

I have just updated it for Helios. This Riena platform must contain pushingpixels and all you need.

The arrowright.png warning is not a problem.

You should also then be able to run riena.demo.client and riena.demo.server.....

as described here http://wiki.eclipse.org/Riena_Example_Applications_and_Code_ Templates

Did you do "Add required plug-ins" ?

Not sure why you are getting this class cast error since HandlerServiceFactory extends AbstractServiceFactory.
