So the question has several parts:|
1) is there any documentation about RCP (e4) apart from tutorials from Vogella and his book?
2) are there any official docs?
3) where can I find sources of Eclipse 4.2/4.3 to generate at least some javadoc and explore whats available inside? (if you know the answer pls don't just send me to http://git.eclipse.org/c/ I can't understand what do I need to download from there - there's a ton of projects and most don't even have description)
