The Eclipse Platform (oftentimes referred to as “e4”) version 4.1, released in June 2011, is a next-generation platform for pervasive, component-based applications and tools. Eclipse 4 Rich Client Platform (RCP) builds on the success of the 3.x stream by providing greater flexibility in laying out and styling of visual elements with the modeled user interface and declarative styling. Under the covers, developing applications that exploit the many “built-in” and custom services of the Eclipse workbench is made easier with dependency injection.

In this talk, we will introduce you to Eclipse 4 and show you how you can be successful leveraging it— along with other Eclipse technologies and the entire Eclipse eco-system— to build your own rich client application.
