Hi all!
In my company, we have an Eclipse 3.7 (now, 3.Cool RCP app up and running, and now, we want to migrate to Eclipse 4.2.
Where do we start?
This is the actual structure of our app

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance

Best place to start is with the migration guide:
http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/development/porting/eclipse_4_2_porting_guide.php

Pay particular attention to the incompatibilities:
http://www.eclipse.org/eclipse/development/porting/4.2/incompatibilities.php

You'll also want to spend sometime with the application framework to have a better understanding:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse4/RCP

Lastly, review your dependencies! Just because your code is Eclipse4 compatible does not mean your application will work successfully in Eclipse4. All of the projects that you depend on will also have to be Eclipse4 compatible (specifically with their Views [now MPart's] and the like).

Well, the two first links aren't helpful...only a few gotchas that I already knew (e.g, keyring, achitecture, etc)
I'll take a deep look inside this wiki about Eclipse 4 RCP...
What I really need is some 'migration tutorial' like 'change the views so they implement MPart', for example
I'll keep looking and testing...if you (or anyone) found something, please, let me know Very Happy

Natively runing on e4 means that you have to completely restructure your
application. I think your best bet for now is that you use the compat
layer and run your unmodified e4 code.

Afterwards follow tutorials to see how e4 applications are developed.
