We are trying to migrate eclipse rcp 3.6 to 4.8 with existing code in 3.6.
Java version used was 1.6 for 3.x and Java 1.8 should be used for 4.x .
We have succesfully imported the code ,resolved the compilation issues and started the application in compatibility mode. But some issues are persisting like few screens are blank ,some tabs can be rearranged,change in look and feel of tabs.
While trying to resolve theses issues, we tried incorporating few features like applicatione4.xmi ,but we got other issues like toolbars not displayed when we tried to do this.
Likewise,when trying mixed mode,we are doutbful that more issues may come which we have to resolve and then proceed to the actual issues.
We are not sure whether we can resolve the issues in mixed mode.
Anyone can you please guide, whether an existing application in 3.6 can be migrated to 4.8 with compatibility mode,adding e4 features (which means a mixed mode).
If it is not possible then only way will be entire rewrite to e4 right?

I don't think you need rewrite it, our migration is successfully from RCP3.4.2 to RCP4.6.3.

But there are some minor issue, that is from Eclipse platform, Eclipse community is just fixing it.
