Rapid Prototyping of Eclipse RCP Applications

Patrik Suzzi (http://itemis.ch/)

Assuming you are an Eclipse RCP application developer, and you need to quickly create a prototype for your customer, ask yourself:

Which technology stack would you use to quickly prototype an Eclipse RCP application?
Is your architecture good enough to be customized and to be used in a real world scenario?
In this showtime demo, I’ll present my experience as Eclipse RCP Application developer, explaining how to quickly prototype RCP applications with a simple, effective and extensible technology stack, based on:

Eclipse E4 as Application Platform
EclipseLink as data persistence service using JPA (on XML / DB)
WindowBuilder to graphically design UIs and to manage data-bindings.
If you choose to develop your application with Eclipse E4 RCP, and your need is to quickly create a prototype with complex UI which can persist your data with JPA, you should carefully watch this demo!
