Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) was released as part of the Eclipse 3.0 platform in an effort to formalize what some organizations had been already been doing with earlier versions: using the richness of the open source Eclipse platform to deliver high quality applications that provide rich user experiences. Since then, numerous organizations (including NASA, IBM, and Novell) have started to leverage Eclipse as the delivery platform for their own applications. As Eclipse continues to evolve, so does the support for building rich client applications.
During this session, through a combination of presentation and demonstration, we will show you how you can leverage Eclipse 3.2 along with the entire Eclipse eco-system to build and deploy rich client applications targeting multiple operating systems (Linux, UNIX, MacOS, Windows, and mobile devices).
