A few weeks ago I showed you how easy it is to integrate jQuery into RAP using the browser widget. I’d like to show you another example of what can be integrated. Last time I created a carousel widget; this time the demo is something smaller but still really cool. Yesterday I came across a github repository by Ryan McGeary. He has created a very clever...

Support for key bindings (bug 282449) has been one of the most requested features for RAP.

A few weeks ago I told you about the Eclipse RTP project. Since then some things happened that I want to share with you. First of all, we made it to the creation review. The review is scheduled for January 12-19. The community gathering period was very successful. We reached 10 interested parties and 7 initial committers from three different companies. In this article, I'd like to focus...

A few weeks ago, my colleague Ralf Sternberg, announced that RAP supports a JQuery integration. What we still needed to do was to create an example that shows how to integrate some JQuery stuff into RAP. Yesterday I took a little time to work on it. I used the JQueryUI Carousel widget as a base. Two hours later the integration and a book store example...
