Eclipse RCP is the gold standard for building cross-platform, rich client applications using a pluggable architeture. Developers can leverage the Eclipse RCP, SWT, and OSGi toolsets to build anything from a simple Eclipse IDE plug-in to a full-blown, internet-enabled, rich client desktop application ready for the enterprise. This presentation will provide a brief overview of the toolsets and will demonstrate the technique for creating an Eclipse IDE plug-in. Not only that, we'll then repackage the simple plug-in and redeploy it as a standalone application!
