Hi,

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:
Quote:
> 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 "myproject.target" 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.

Hi and welcome to RAP!

No, it's not! It's intended to go into your target platform, not the IDE
itself.

Yes, that will work. I'd recommend to extract the zip to a folder, name
it rap-runtime-1.4.1, create a new target definition (New ... > Target
Definition), and add this directory to it. There are other ways to do
it, but this one is the easiest.

If your application works with 1.4.0 as well, there's no need to change
the version range. Just install the new target platform, that's it.

Hope this helps, Ralf
