Hi there,
I currently have a SWT application that is not an RCP application and have recently come across RAP. I'm wanting to know is it recommended/required that I first convert my application to use the RCP framework.

All my research points to yes, but as it would seem to be a massive undertaking I though I would ask if it is necessary first.
If this is so can anyone point me in the direction of some good RCP documentation for doing so.

Cheers,
Tim

Hi Timothy,

of course you can run plain SWT applications on RAP. Turning them into RCP
first is neither necessary nor recommended, since RCP is more heavyweight
and complex than needed for most web applications.

The "standalone" approach (Ivan pointed you to the FAQ) is the way to go
when you don't want to deal with OSGi.

But even if you like to use OSGi, there's no need for RCP. You can turn
your SWT application into a bundle, add a dependency to
org.eclipse.rap.ui, and deploy it the usual way.

Best regards, Ralf

Hi Ralf,
I am struggling exactly the same problem. I have an RCP application which I want to use it in my RAP application in a separate perspective.

I am not sure on how to convert this RCP application into a bundle and add it as dependency to my rap.ui. can you help me please ?
