Spurred by Chris Aniszczyk's recent blog post ("Web Development Revisited") I decided to post a RAP screencast showing how to convert the RCP Mail Template into a RAP application. The whole process takes just a few minutes. View screencast in new window.
RAP stands for Rich Ajax Platform. It is an Eclipse Project that enables Java developers to build browser-based AJAX applications using the full Java libraries, Eclipse APIs and a plug-in architecture. It does so by providing a web-enabled implementation of SWT, JFace and the Workbench.
