Hi All,

I am trying to start off with RAP.I updated the plug-ins from this update site http://www.eclipse.org/rap/downloads/.

I updated the tooling.It says it includes the runtime also.
I even tried Helios release of RCP/RAP IDE.

In both i am getting the same issue.I am not able to resolve IEntryPoint.I think it belongs to org.eclipse.rap.ui, which i am not able to find in the installed plug-ins.

Please help.

Thanks and Regards,
Saurav

Saurav,

It's best to ask about RAP on the RAP newsgroup/forum, which I've added
to the "to" list of this reply. Have you created new plugins with
dependencies on the plugin that contains the IEntryPoint interface?

Hi Ed,,

Thanks for the reply.
Yes the I used the template created by Eclipse.It adds the org.eclipse.rap.ui in the dependencies page by default, and then its unable to resolve it.


Thanks and Regards,
Saurav

Saurav,

I wonder if there's a bug in the forum software that your reply removed
the RAP forum? Your reply appears only on the newcomers forum which, as
I suggested, is far less likely to solicit help from the RAP team then
using their specialized newsgroup.

You mentioned "I updated the tooling.It says it includes the runtime
also." I'm not sure what you did or what "It says it includes the
runtime" means, but you need to follow the instructions for installing
the runtime into a PDE target platform and making that target platform
the default/active one so that your workspace ends up resolve plugins
there. It sounds like you've not done that.

Hi Saurav,

it is true that the RAP tooling contains the RAP runtime and a target
installer to ease getting started with RAP development. But if you are
using a mixed target (EMF + RAP + ...), you should rather get your
target components directly from a repository.

Here's a wiki page that explains how to use RAP + EMF:
http://wiki.eclipse.org/RAP/EMF_Integration

Feel free to post to the RAP newsgroup if you still have problems.

Regards, Ralf

Thanks Ralf and Ed for the replies.

I tried using http://download.eclipse.org/rt/rap/1.3/runtime as the target definition.I am getting no software update site found.

I checked the network connection.It seems to be fine and I dont not use proxy here.

My question if at all i have the runtime bundled with IDE why i need to point it from an external location ?

I was using the RAP application creation template.Please find the code below.

<code>
package rapplugin;

import org.eclipse.rwt.lifecycle.IEntryPoint;

import org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display;
import org.eclipse.ui.PlatformUI;
import org.eclipse.ui.application.WorkbenchAdvisor;

/**
* This class controls all aspects of the application's execution
* and is contributed through the plugin.xml.
*/
public class Application implements IEntryPoint {

public int createUI() {
Display display = PlatformUI.createDisplay();
WorkbenchAdvisor advisor = new ApplicationWorkbenchAdvisor();
return PlatformUI.createAndRunWorkbench( display, advisor );
}
}

</code>

Where the IDE is not able to resolve IEntryPoint.
Its able to resolve other plug-ins like org.eclipse.rap.ui.intro and couple of other plug-ins but not the org.eclipse.rap.ui.

Best Regards,
Saurav

ok...What i did was i extracted the downloaded RAP runtime zip.Copied the plug-ins and features into my IDE's plug-ins.

Then put the RAP bundles in the Runtime configuration.This seems to work, though i got the following error

<code>

But my sample view is working.

Saurav,

I won't repeat the suggestion to use the RAP forum. Ralf might well not
see your question here.
