Is there a best practice in order to change the application Icon ?

I found this article for Eclipse RCP application: Branding Your Application. This probably apply to Eclipse Scout SWT application, but I was wondering if it is the good way or not.

There is also a branding tab in each product file (like <my app>-swt-client-dev.product)... Should I start there ?

The following steps only work for Scout release 3.8.0 which will be part of the Eclipse Juno release. For older Scout releases, it is easiest to install a fragment with SWT/Swing Plug-In as its Host-bundle. Add the icons to be customized into the folder '/resources/internal' of that fragment. Thereby, the application icon would be 'window16.png', 'window32.png', 'window48.png', 'window256.png' and the tray icon 'tray.gif'.

For Scout 3.8.0 (Juno):
In SWT, add an extension to the extension point 'org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swt.scouticons' of your SWT Plug-In. To change the application icon, choose an icon for the item 'window'.

In Swing, add an extension to the extension point 'org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swing.scouticons' of your Swing Plug-In. To change the application icon, choose an icon for the item 'window16', 'window32', 'window48' and 'window256', respectively. Also, choose an icon for the item 'tray' to have a custom tray icon installed. Please ensure the tray icon to be in the gif format. To change the application logo (splash), choose an image for the item 'logo'.

I hope that helps.

Are you sure this works with Scout 3.8 combined with Eclipse 4.2 (that will be the Juno release).
I just tried it with Juno M6 (download package and update from the SDK).

<extension
      point="org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swt.scouticons">
   <window
         icon="resources/icons/mcqs_32x32.gif">
   </window>
</extension>


In the Plugin Editor (XML tab), I get a warning "Element 'window' is depreciated".

In the Dock (Mac OS X) it now looks like this (swt dev product).
index.php/fa/9638/0/

Should I search and set the name and Icon the way Eclipse E4 is doing it ?
Do you have some pointer (code, article, ...) where I should start to look for ?

Thanks.
