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.

Gadi.

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.

Thanks Martin,

These tutorials are out of date. I am looking for inside knowledge :)

Let me break it down:
1. Do I start from eclipse with a wizard or is there a maven archetype?
2. Is there a Tycho installation for eclipse?
3. What are the steps to create an RCP Tycho project and run it?
4. Do I run the RCP app from eclipse or from maven or other?
5. How do I use Tycho to do an "Export" ?

maybe too many questions to start with but I spent few days already
going nowhere and getting frustrated. For example, the RCP demo tycho
from github will not even open in eclipse?!

I will try and add the RCP to my eclipse but not sure which download
site is recommended for it.

Cheers,
Gadi.
