Re: [tycho-user] Tycho RCP starting point

Hi Gadi,

IMHO a good starting point for Eclipse RCP is the tutorial from vogella [1]. They do also have a up-to-date Tycho tutorial [2] and after working through the tutorials, you would have good samples/starting points. Regarding your 4th question, I would recommend to use the Eclipse Installer [3] and select "Eclipse for RCP and RAP Developers" to get an IDE with all the RCP features. But it is also possible to install the RCP stuff on any existing Eclipse IDE installation by using the "Install new Software..."-Wizard.

Betreff: [tycho-user] Tycho RCP starting point

Hi All,

I am new to eclipse platform and RCP.

I was assigned with a task to migrate an eclipse RCP project to Tycho and adding backend communication to pull live data. There are some SWT customizations but over all it is a simple application.

My questions are:
1. where can I find up to date documentation on RCP?
2. where can I find up to date documentation on Tycho?
3. sample application for both Tycho and RCP?
4. Can I install RCP on top of standard eclipse IDE or do I have to use the specific IDE for RCP?

Many thanks in advance.
