Hi All,

I am the Technical Director for a small company that produces an ERP for
small sales companies. I have spent some time in the past experimenting
with the development of thin-client UIs based on SWT, specifically
Remote SWT. In the past I also developed JLense which is essentially a
Swing-based implementation of the Eclipse Workbench.

I think that Eclipse community needs a framework for developing server
applications with thin-client UIs based on the RCP. I would like to be
able to someday deploy our application as BOTH a web-based application
AND a thin-client application that uses a SWT-based 'presentation
engine'. And maybe even as a fat standalone RCP application as well.
It sounds to me like RAP would make this possible.

Therefore I am interested in contributing to RAP.
I am especially interested in helping to develop full SWT and JFace
compatibility and in the development of the Web Workbench.

Hi Ted,

thank You for Your interest in contributing to RAP. Since we are on the
verge of creation review (June 21st) and afterwards a legal review has
to be passed it will take some more weeks until we are ready to start.
After that and the CVS server is up and running we plan a conference
call for all who are interested in the project. We will keep You
informed about the progress.

Best regards
Rüdiger Herrmann
