You don't have to develop "two products". You just have to maintain two
target platforms that have identical sets of included plugins, with the only
difference being the RCP and RAP plugins.
I have two TP definition files (.target files) for my project, one is based
on Eclipse 3.7M4 and one is RAP 1.4 and it works very well.
When I want to test with RCP I just switch to RCP target platform and it
runs. If I want to test with RAP I switch to RAP target and it runs.
Apart from very specific RCP/RAP functionality all my plugins build with
either TP, even the application. I don't use Application / IEntryPoint but I
use IApplication which works on both RCP and RAP.
The remaining issues are:
1. some plugins are not available in RAP, but this is a fact of life.
2. RCP .product and RAP branding and extension points are separate. I
consider this only a small annoyance and it doesn't bug me very much.
