This is kind of embarrassing, as I know I must be missing something obvious. I've been using Eclipse for Java app development for a long time.

I'm starting to learn about developing an app using RCP.
Reading the FAQ, there is this:
" Now, any plug-in projects in your workspace will build and run against the RCP SDK plug-ins rather than the IDE's.
If you are developing against the same version as the Eclipse SDK, there is new support in since 3.2 M5 that simplifies setting up the Target Platform for RCP development, and makes it easier to incrementally include other plug-ins from the SDK build.
1. Go to Window > Preferences > Plugin-Development > Target Platform."

The only problem is that my installation of Eclipse doesn't HAVE a "Plugin-Development" entry anywhere in the Preferences dialog.

I'm running
Version: Helios Service Release 1
Build id: 20100917-0705

You need to go to the Helios Discover site (Help>Install New Software)
and select General Purpose Tools>Eclipse Plug-in Development
Environment. That'll get you PDE.
