    by , 11-14-2011 at 05:54 PM (My Java Tips)
    While the Eclipse platform is designed to serve as an open tools platform, it is architect so that its components could be used to build just about any client application. The minimal set of plug-ins needed to build a rich client application is collectively known as the Rich Client Platform.

    The Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) allows developers to use the Eclipse architecture to design flexible and extensible applications re-using a lot of already existing functionality and coding patterns inherent in Eclipse. Programmers can build their own applications on existing platforms.
