I am running a RAP application in Jetty. I have created a plugin that uses a PresentationFactory class, which in turn creates an IWindowComposer implementation, to give special treatment to the main menubar and toolbar areas in the postWindowOpen() method. However, I want the rest of the appearance (including such things as view toolbars) to remain the same as for a plain, no-branding RAP application, without having to re-implement the whole default presentation from scratch.

I have tried setting up an org.eclipse.rap.ui.branding extension wherein the presentationFactory is assigned a defaultStackPresentation that simply uses the existing ConfigurableStack class, but the views are still not showing up properly; for example, none of the closable tabs have their close buttons, and all of the view toolbars are piled up in the upper-left corner of the perspective instead of showing up in their respective views.

So my question is, is there any way I can access the appearance of the default presentation, while overriding and re-implementing as little as possible, but still make the small tweaks in my WindowComposer class? Or is there a better way to programmatically make such tweaks without affecting the rest of the appearance?

I had the same problems these days and found it impossible to reuse the workbench presentation elements with reasonable efforts.
