I am new to Eclipse RAP. I have a sample RAP project based on 1.4.0. Now I try to upgrade to RAP 1.4.1

What I did is:

1. Install "Eclipse for RCP and RAP Developers"
Version: Indigo Service Release 1
Build id: 20110916-0149[/code]

2. Install target platform via the welcome page
Via Welcome page > Overview > Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) > Install Target Platform

3. Download RAP 1.4.1
I downloaded the zip from here the rap download page. On the page I see this note:
This is a target platform, do not try to install it into the Eclipse IDE

Q1: What does that mean?

In the zip file I see the folders eclipse/plugins and eclipse/features. Which means it is intended to be installed into my Eclipse IDE, isn't it?

Q2: How to upgrade to 1.4.1?

In my sample RAP project I see there is target file "" containing a folder to the RAP jars:

<location path="${project_loc}/target/rap-platform" type="Directory"/>

In this folder I see all the 29 rap jars (org.eclipse.rap.XXX) and also other jars. Looking into your zip these has change among other jars.

I guess I just remove all jars in this rap folder and replace them by the jars provided in the zip?

Q3: Which configurations changes are needed?

In the sample project I see in the MANIFEST.MF file this entry:

Require-Bundle: org.eclipse.rap.ui;bundle-version="1.4.1"

I changed the version from 1.4.0 to 1.4.1.

But after that I get an error from eclipse: "Unsatisfied version constraint". Also I get compile errors.
