Hello,
I'm fairly new to RCP development; I just started developing my first RCP application yesterday. My question is this, is there a smart way to develop an RCP application that has all the basic eclipse functionalities in addition to the features I want to add? Because when I looked around it seems like the only possible way to do this is to develop an RCP application from scratch and then add the needed features/plug-ins to it one by one.

Thanks in advance and sorry if it's an amateur question.

Depends on what you mean by "basic eclipse functionalities". Everything in Eclipse is shipped as bundles and features. A feature is a group of bundles. There are two base features that include the base functionality for standard RCP apps using just the E4 layer (`org.eclipse.e4.rcp`) or the full E3.x RCP (`org.eclipse.rcp`). Then it's a matter to figure out which other bundles include the additional functionality you want to include. The Eclipse Plug-in Spies (Alt-Shift-F1 and Alt-Shift-F2), available from the `org.eclipse.pde.runtime` bundle, are particularly useful for finding the contributors of particular editors, views, and menu/toolbar items.
