I'm diving a little bit into e4 applications. I'm creating an RCP application and have several perspectives.

I looked on how to change perspectives and found a tutorial using a GitHub project (e4-perspective-switcher : https://github.com/jd-carroll/e4-perspective-switcher)

I was wondering if using this is still a good approach or if Eclipse has been involved and some other (better methods(?)) can be used in an RCP application?

How does the current workbench handle this or is this still a 3.x approach that's used there?

If there are better methods please point out where to find info.

Thank you.

You can use the EModelService to find the perspective and the EPartService to switch it:

public class SwitchPerspectiveHandler {
  @Execute
  public void execute(MApplication app, EPartService partService, 
      EModelService modelService) {
    MPerspective element = 
        (MPerspective) modelService.find("secondperspective", app);
    // now switch perspective
    partService.switchPerspective(element);
  }
}
