RAP 1.4 M2 - New and Noteworthy

Here's a list of the most noteworthy things in the milestone build 1.4 M2 which is available for download.

This list shows all bugs that were fixed during this milestone.

    New API added

    This will make it easier for the community to reuse existing code or to utilize new features. Here is a list of API methods added in M2:
    • Display#getSystemTray()
    • Tree#getTopItem()
    • Tree#setTopItem( TreeItem )

    Improved iPad support

    While RAP was already running on iPad, a number of bugs and glitches made it barely usable. We fixed many of these problems, mostly issues with the touch-interface and layouting. Also, a RAP-application can now be run in fullscreen-mode. Simply touch the "+", select "Add to Home Screen", and start it from there. Note that pinch-zoom is disabled in fullscreen-mode.
    Some issues remain, but we will continue to improve support for iPad and other mobile devices.

    New Default Theme

    After introducing the Business and Fancy Design with RAP 1.3, RWT gets a new default theme with this milestone. The new default theme is a migration of the existing Business theme. The old theme is still available as a separate bundle called org.eclipse.rap.rwt.theme.classic.

    New Default Theme: Classic Theme:
    To activate the classic theme simply add the bundle to an exsiting launch configuration and change the servlet name to "classic". An alternative way to use the classic theme is to create an own branding and set the themeId to org.eclipse.rap.rwt.theme.classic.

    The above features are just the ones that are new since the last milestone build. Summaries for earlier builds:
