I'm new to RCP development and trying to figure out if there is any 'standard'/'recommended' maven archetype to use for RCP that I can integrate with Eclipse. If so; where can I find it?

So far I have come across eclipse-tycho-archetype from com.github.bmaggi in the maven repository, but that archetype seems to generate an ordinary plugin project for test, which I believe should be a fragment project instead. The other one is tycho-eclipse-plugin-archetype at https://github.com/open-archetypes/tycho-eclipse-plugin-archetype, but that one is not included in the Eclipse IDE for RCP.

To summarize:
Do you all create your own maven archetype for your RCP application or do you use some from maven repository or other locations?

Thanks for any guidance.

Tycho can be used to build Eclipse (OSGi) plugins, features, and products with maven. Have a look at the project website and some tutorials:
