Singlesourcing Branding (Splashscreen) [message #131062] Mon, 04 May 2009 13:33 Go to next message

Hello everybody,
in our RAP application we use a branding (extension point
org.eclipse.rap.ui.branding) that includes a cusotom favicon, title and
body (which contains html showing a splash image and a feedback gif).

Since we are single sourcing, we put the rap-branding-specific files in
a folder named "html" in the rap fragment. This configuration shows the
branding when starting my app from the IDE.

But when deploying the app on a web container we gained a
NullPointerException concerning the branding. After some time of
investigation I found out that putting the branding files into the
host-bunle (my.application) does the trick. Now I see the branding when
invoking the app on the web container.

Unfortionately this is not a very elegant solution concerning single
sourcing, since the host bundle should not contain any rap specific
artefacts (like the html and pictures for the rap branding). Does anyone
know how to leave the files in the rap fragment and make them known to
rap at runtime?

Thanks in advance!

Regards
Björn

Hi Björn,

the first thing you should check is that all the files are included in
your build.properties file. Otherwise they are not exported by PDE and
cannot be found after deploying the application.

Cheers
Benny

Hi Benny,
I thouht that I checked the build.properties before posting. But
recently I tried to remove the branding stuff from the host bundle, and
it still works. So probably that was the issue. Anyway thanks for your
explanation.

Regards,
Björn
