Hello all,
I'd like to have a suggestion on a program I'm going to develop using RCP. Essentially it is an ERP program, so the user will have different set of master-slave tables to edit and read. Now my doubt is: should I have to use a perspective for each kind of tables the user will be shown to? I mean, a perspective for the articles, one for the customers, one for the suppliers, and so on? Or should I use simply views?
Advantages of using perspective could be that the program becomes more customizable, I mean I can always remove a perspective or hide a perspective depending on the user permissions, but it is not clear if this is the right approach. Any suggestion is welcome.

Thanks

Hi,

The customization argument can also be applied to Views. We are using
Views in our ERP application and group them in perspectives. E.g.
Privileges Perspective contains User, Group, ... Views, ....
