Hi,

I like Eclipse RCP and Equinox.

Is there a "Scout way" to build automatically an AJAX+HTML application from Eclipse RCP code ? Don't want to rewrite the whole code for a porting.

If yes can I download an example app anywhere ?

Thank you.

A scout application consists of models for form, field, desktop, view, etc, including gui/business logic and glue code.
This model does not contain any swt, swing, ajax etc. code.
By adding the scout gui plugins (swt/rcp, swing, ajax,rap) this application becomes a RCP, AJAX, RAP application.

In short. The scout way of creating applications is by not creating a hard-wired swt,swing or ajax application in the first place.

Therefore for example a migration from an existing scout "Swing" application to a scout "Ajax" application is a zero step. Just changing the involved gui plugins.

This all describes the front-end part.

The back-end part is similar. It uses the equinox server side as the core for services (osgi), integration, jax-ws and j2ee (bridge servlet).

Hi Jean-Luc,

We don't have complete sample applications with RAP available yet. But this is something that should come in the future.

If you want to give it try, I suggest to follow the following tutorials:
(sorry for the incomplete URLs, I am not yet allowed to post URLs Sad)

Start creating a simple Scout application with this tutorial:
http//wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/Tutorial/3.8/HelloWorld

Then you can follow this tutorial to export your sample application to your own application servers:
http//wiki.eclipse.org/Scout/Tutorial/3.8/Deploy_to_Tomcat

To work through these tutorials you can e.g. use the developer build of Scout 3.8:
http//www.eclipse.org/downloads/index-developer.php

regards,
matthias
