ECLIPSE RICH CLIENT PLATFORM MCAFFER PDF

The authors fully reveal the power of Eclipse as a desktop application development platform; introduce important new improvements in Eclipse 3. Drawing on their extensive experience, the authors cover building, refining, and refactoring prototypes; customizing user interfaces; adding help and software management features; and building, branding, testing, and shipping finished software. They demonstrate current best practices for developing modular and dynamically extensible systems, using third-party code libraries, packaging applications for diverse environments, and much more. For Java programmers at all levels of experience, this book Introduces important new RCP features such as p2, Commands, and Databinding Thoroughly covers key RCP-related technologies such as Equinox, SWT, JFace, and OSGi Shows how to effectively brand and customize RCP application look-and-feel Walks through user interface testing for RCP applications with SWTBot Illuminates key similarities and differences between RCP and conventional plug-in development Hands-on, pragmatic, and comprehensive, this book offers all the real-world, nontrivial code examples working developers need-as well as "deep dives" into key technical areas that are essential to your success.

What is a Rich Client? Wikipedia does a terrible job of defining Rich Client. In fact, it just redirects you to Fat Client , which I think this is wrong. In many ways, a rich client is very similar to a fat client: both provide a rich user experience using time-honoured user-interface components with great graphical features, drag and drop and the like. Both run interesting behaviour on the client workstation contrast with the browser which tends to run view rendering and minor application-specific logic on the workstation.

Both rich clients and fat clients have an implied server component though this is not necessarily the case as it is possible to build completely standalone applications with both. Perhaps one of the bigger differences, at least at some conceptual level, is that rich clients tend to leverage relatively interesting backend resources like an application server; fat clients tend to connect directly to databases. Of course, this is not necessarily the case, as it is completely possible and totally reasonable to build a rich client that connects directly to a database.

It is also the case that many fat clients do access more interesting backend resources. But the differences are bigger than the nature of the server. In my opinon, a rich client: Delivers a rich user experience. This is obvious. Is typically a client for some backend service. Again, this is pretty obvious Is platform independent.

In the salad days of client-server development—when fat clients were all the rage—we had pretty tight control over the delivery platform. Even within relatively small organizations, it is not uncommon to see multiple platforms Windows, Mac, Linux, …. Very often, the rich client is an integration point and so must be able to leverage platform component services and such as well.

Runs with little or no modification on multiple platforms and devices. This is related to the previous point, but with a hook: devices. More and more of our work is being done on relatively small devices like PDAs and phones. Development resources are pretty expensive, so being able to move existing applications to new platforms relatively easily is critical.

Has robust component model. We built components in those previously-mentioned salad days, but we did through architecture of the application. An explicit component model framework is absolutely critical when it comes to building rich clients. Applications today are simply too complex and integrate too many different technologies from too many different groups to not have a sophisticated framework for managing dependencies and communication between components.

Has an integrated update mechanism. One of the biggest challenges with fat client applications is keeping them up-to-date just deploying them is pretty hard. Rich client applications must be able to update themselves easily. Must be extensible. Change is an important force in software development that cannot be overlooked.

A rich client application must be able to accommodate change. We must be able to easily change the behaviour or add new and completely unanticipated behavior. This, of course, relates to the need for an update mechanism, as we need to have a way to deliver this new functionality. Has the potential to work offline. However, in the meantime, reality is that many of us need to be able to work disconnected from a server.
