Folks,

I have an app written in RCP with SWT etc. The application can be
single or multi user, and is designed as a peer-to-peer distributed
application.

Now a crucial potential source of funds to continue development
wants to make this app accessible through their web portal.
They care a lot that all the apps that they expose through their
portal can be reached and launched through the user's browser.
Ideally they don't want the user to need to install anything more
than his browser, although there may be some wiggle room about
browser plugins.

Is there any way to allow a browser to open a window onto an RCP
application? I'm not asking for elegant, just something better
than rewriting the entire UI in <eccch> HTML.

/Jim

Hi Jim,

maybe you should take a look at the RAP project: www.eclipse.org/rap.

Cheers
Benny
