E4 and RCP4: Desktop and Web from one source

Back at EclipseCon, one of the big news items had to do with the proposed Eclipse 4, or E4 feature set. But I think that the true story behind E4 isn't just about running Eclipse in a browser, but in something much more interesting than that.

The real E4 story

E4 isn't just a very cool AJAX framework–it's the ability to write rich client applications that deploy to a desktop or a browser from the same code base.

And this is interesting.

Which is why I'm attending the upcoming E4 Summit. And why I've switched to a bliki–a cross between a blog and a Wiki–to make it easier to both blog and write about E4.

E4 is the Community's Platform

I can't make RCP4 happen by myself. IBM can't make E4 happen by itself.

Come and join us! Jump in–the coding's fun and the water's warm!

Please add comments with your ideas, thoughts, and critiques, preferably over on the RCP page.
