Hi All,

Still early days for me in RAP.
I have an existing application which in turn uses EMF,has a Common Navigator view ,XML FIle based Editors, Properties view etc.
I know there are limitations of RAP.I would like to get a heads up of how to go ahead with testing my app for RAP.I was trying to put the my explorer view first in the RAP.For that i had put my plug-ins into the RAP application plug-in, but in turn my plug-in requires some other Eclipse platform Plug-ins.

My problem is that Reduntant plug-ins selected.How do i ensure proper plug-ins are selected as a Target platform.?

Any heads up or some link to case studies as how an exsisting RCP/Plug-in app was converted into an RAP app would be also hugely appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Saurav

Hi Saurav,

the good news first: you can use EMF core and EMF-generated editors with
RAP [1]. The Common Navigator Framework is not yet available for RAP,
there is an open feature request with some experimental code [2]. Please
note that many platform bundles will not work with RAP without changes
because they are not multi-user ready. So simply dragging dependencies
into your target might not work as expected. I would recommend to start
single-sourcing with a small subset of your application and extend bit
by bit.

Hope this helps to get you started.

Regards, Ralf

Hi Ralf,

Thanks for the reply.
I am slowly getting into the groove of RAP.
My application does depend on several plug-ins of WTP
like org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.core.
Do we have support for those plug-ins on RAP ?.

cheers,
Saurav

There is neither support for resources nor for full-featured source code
editors in RAP, which currently prevents the adoption of IDE features.
I'm sorry. If your application is supposed to be some kind of Web-IDE,
you'll need to implement those features (resources management, code
editors) on your own.

Regards, Ralf
