RE: [cdt-dev] CDT and RAP

I believe that's what E4 (Eclipse 4.0) is. Check the Planet,
BTW, if you haven't been following along, there is a major "discussion" going on about the new proposed Eclipse Platform, code named "E4". It is critical that we as a community get involved in this. It appears to be a major change and if resourcing stays at the same level, we'll never get our platform requirements met. I think we've complained enough about that over the years and we need to start taking action.
BTW2, my gut and experience tells me that running Eclipse in a browser is really going to suck. This isn't your typical shopping cart application, it's an IDE.

Subject: [cdt-dev] CDT and RAP


Does anyone know much about the RAP (Rich Ajax Platform) and more specifically whether it would be at all feasible to port some or all of the CDT to use it, instead of RCP? From what I understand, it replaces some of the graphical parts of the Eclipse platform (SWT, JFace, the workbench) with cut-down implementations that generate Ajax code so that you can effectively run Eclipse inside a browser. I suspect this would be a huge project but I haven't found much documentation yet on porting existing plug-ins.
