I see that the default RWT/RAP theme has changed in 1.5M3 from 1.4 (http://eclipse.org/rap/noteworthy/1.5/news_M3.php) and I also see that the 1.3 classic theme has been removed (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=364965).|
I want to preserve the sizing of existing widgets from 1.4 in my application. This is because after running it with 1.5, I see some of my applications existing SWT layouts don't size well with the new padding space, text box size, table header size, etc. After seeing the removal of the 1.3 theme, I would like to make sure I'm preserving the 1.4 widget sizing in the most maintainable way.
I think I figured out from googling and CVS that the closest thing to what I want is the business theme from: org.eclipse.rap.design.example.
So, my questions are:
1. Would you suggest using the the business theme for preserving 1.4 widget sizing going forward (i.e. is the plan to maintain the business theme and keep it's look similar)?
2. Is the proper way to utilize the business theme to use the org.eclipse.rap.design.example bundle (from cvs or wherever) and specify my applications theme as: "org.eclipse.rap.design.example.business.theme"? I've looked around in the documentation, but I mostly see information for creating a new custom theme, not utilizing the business theme.
Oh yeah, and RAP is awesome, thanks for all your work, guys!
