I find the initiative however very interesting. Although Eclipse RCP exists already for more years now, it is - if at all - just rarely used in software companies here in South Tyrol. Window and layout management, automatic updating, modular and extensible design with plugins, fragments and features and product branding are just some of the features and advantages provided by the Eclipse RCP environment. It can for sure be said that it is an innovative and emerging technology in the Java development sector wherefore it become an interesting and attractive alternative for our local industry in the next years.
