During the webinar, Ralf Sternberg and Ruediger Herrmann will explore the differences between RAP and RCP that are especially relevant to the goal of single sourcing as much code as possible. This means that you’re able to reuse a lot of code and skills in single sourcing projects. If you’re still a bit fuzzy on the topic, a concrete example of single sourcing in practice was the Eclipse Memory Analyzer (MAT) project:
