you can open documents in separate browser tabs, but there are still
* Customizable REST-like URLs are not yet supported, you'll have to use
URL parameters like /document?id=23
We have plans to support REST-like URLs in one of the next releases.
* Multiple browser tabs won't currently work when Cookies are used to
track the user session. Servlet containers will fall back use URL
rewriting when Cookies are disabled. See also .
* Regarding performance: the client browser will consume more memory
because there are in fact multiple pages with a lot of DOM elements. But
this is not specific to RAP, it will be the same with every other
framework as well. The server footprint will also increase, as there are
more user active sessions and more widgets. If you don't store
heavyweight objects in the session store, the widgets are what counts,
so this also won't differ so much from Vaadin.
I fully agree that the workbench is not very usable in the web. RAP
allows you to run workbench-based applications, but it does not require
you to use it. RAP is basically a widget toolkit with SWT API (called
RWT), it can be used with or without OSGi, with or without JFace, and
the workbench is also just optional.
