I am new to RCP and would like to know if it's feasible to swap/switch between the views when an event occurs?

Example: I have 2 views (view A and view B) defined in a perspective. The default layout of the perspective only displays view A. Is it possible to open view B when an event occurs in view A. When opening view B it should hide view A. This behavior is similar to switching tabs, however there should be only one tab for both views. Do not want to manually switch between the views.

Is this possible? Any help will be very appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

You can programmatically open and close views, see the IWorkbenchPage#showView and IWorkbenchPage#hideView methods
