RCP webpage [message #20396] Mon, 13 June 2005 19:14 Go to next message

Hello,

I read in Ian's blog that for the 3.1 release the foundation will put the
focus on RCP. I can only find that great and I mean it! However I'm a bit
worried when I look at the RCP webpage(http://eclipse.org/rcp) because what
I get out of it convey amateur-ness, immaturity, etc. which is exactly at
the opposite of the state of the platform.
So my question: is there any effort currently going on to make this
particular webpage better?

I agree that this is not the best first impression, but the information
on the page is essential. Perhaps this should become the RCP Development
Resources page, linked to from the (new) main RCP page.

A possible model to follow for cleaning up the existing page is the very
helpful SWT Development Resources page
( http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/%7Echeckout%7E/plat form-swt-home/dev.html).

Another good idea from the SWT page would be RCP Snippets, pulled
together on one page. The RCP apps in the SDK are good snippet examples,
each of them illustrates some different aspects of RCP development, but
only so many examples can ship with Eclipse. The RCP Text Editor
example, brought up to date would be a good snippet. Ed Burnette has
some he might contribute, etc.
