Hi all,

is there an easy way to use the business design that comes with the org.eclipse.rap.design.example plugin in a 3.x RCP application?

I have looked at the org.eclipse.ui.examples.presentation plugin for getting familiar with the Presentation API in RCP applications, but the approach is different from the RAP presentation approach.

Any help would be much appreciated.


Uwe

You can import the source of the project in your workspace from the plugins perspective. It helps a lot to see all the code so you can modify whatever you want, I've done it and it works pretty well... What do you want to do?

Hi David,

thank you for your answer.

I have imported the source code into my workspace already, and I've also modified it in order to fit my needs. It works pretty well for an RAP application but I don't know if and how I can use the design in an RCP application. For instance, the design uses a HeaderBuilder class that extends from the ElementBuilder class which is not available on an RCP target platform.

So I guess my question is: What modifications does it take to make this design available for an RCP application?

The design (a.k.a. "Interaction Design API") has been implemented only
in the RAP workbench to adapt RCP applications for the web. To use it
in RCP, you'd have to patch the Eclipse workbench. Since Eclipse 4 has
completely new layout and styling concepts, I doubt that this is worth
the effort.

Regards, Ralf

Looks like there is no easy way. Thanks, Ralf, for these insights.
