Hi Team,

Currently the offline (RCP) mode of Dirigible is mainly targeting Java developers [1]. This way the Java scripting services engine (in-memory compilation) runs server-less in Eclipse. The main benefit is the re-use of standalone JDT. The required 'request' and 'response' objects are mocked. The same is valid for JavaScript server-side scripts, but currently the Orion is more powerful editor than JSDT in standalone Eclipse, hence does not make sense to set JavaScript as a target for RCP mode.
The obvious benefit in server-less approach is the leaner architecture and potentially better performance. The drawback is that the user interfaces development is almost useless e.g. when requires a real running service end-point to retrieve the data.
Feedback about the usage and usefulness as well as the architectural options to improve use-case coverage without bringing too much complexity and decreasing performance are highly appreciated.

Regards,
Nedelcho
