First RCP Application

On Fedora, Eclipse Helios comes with templates for building RCP applications. In this example I'll walk through building a simple RCP app using one of these templates.

  • Start eclipse and create a new plug in project. Name the project ca.on.senecac.scs.FirstRCP and then click the Next button.
  • In the Content window say yes to "Would you like to create a rich client application?". Then click Next.
  • In the Templates window select "Hello RCP" and click Next.
  • In the Basic RCP Application window check the box to Add branding and click Finish.
  • You should end up with something like this:

  • Now run the application by clicking on "Launch an Eclipse Application".
  • Here's what you get.

Congratulations, you're done!
