I have some questions about RAP

1. In examples the views are not dockable and draggable. Is it possible to drag view from one location to another?
2. RAP has very nice conception - all user code execute on server side and gui's change fetch from server automatically. It's OK, but is it possible this in RCP (not RAP) application? I need some client features that missing in RAP (e.g the system tray and other integration with system). It's will be great if we have the advanced feature of RAP (server side gui) and rich client features as system tray, etc...

Hi,

That's not yet possible in RAP and there are currently no plans to
implement this feature. But there's already a feature request opened
with a (probably outdated) patch [1].

With the new JSON-based client-server protocol [2] it is possible to
connect alternative client implementations to a RAP server. We currently
use this with mobile clients, but an SWT-based client would also be
possible.
