I noticed the following things regarding RAP entry points:

- When an application ID is used as entry point, it is not qualified with the Bundle
Symbolic name as in RCP. I think the usage of an application id should be the same,
qualified format in RCP and RAP (com.example.somebundle.myapp vs. myapp)

- The RAP run configuration doesn't allow to leave the entry point ID empty. It should,
because you can define a default entry point for a servlet.

- The branding extension point doesn't allow to specify an application ID as
defaultEntryPointId.

Greetings,

Ralf

Ralf,

thanks for the input. In order address and/or discuss the issues, it
would be good to have them as separate bugs. Would you mind filing them?

TIA
Rüdiger

Hi Ralf,

This was done by intention as otherwise, RAP developers would be forced
to expose bundle ids to the outside world. That's the reason why we
decided to go with the simple id instead of the full qualified one.

Yep, the launcher should handle this case too. Please open a bug.

In the branding, you should be able to use the fully qualified id of
your application to refer to it as defaultEntrypiont (eg.
com.example.somebundle.myapp). I'm sorry to say that the PDE tooling
cannot help you in this case as the attribute refers to two distinct
extension types.

Hope that helps
Benny
