RCP and the Eclipse "look"

I’ve been chatting with colleagues lately about what RCP is and what is possible with RCP. One of the comments made was that “do all RCP applications have that Eclipse look?” The answer is no (although I feel like every application needs those swooshy CTabFolder‘s). Some people may not know this, but Eclipse has a presentations API. You can do crazy stuff like theme Eclipse to look like Visual Studio.

What I want to do with this blog post is to start by posting a screenshot of an RCP application that doesn’t “look like Eclipse.” I encourage other PlanetEclipse’rs to follow suit by posting a favourite RCP application of theirs. My application is Lotus’ new Sametime client. Doesn’t look too shabby eh ;)?

    Chris,

    Noticed your sametime client has my name listed under UI.

    It’s confusing. Two women, same first name, both work on the eclipse platform project, wear glasses and have blond hair 🙂

    To clarify
    Kim Horne => Platform UI
    Kim Moir => Platform Releng

    I know who you are Kim (non harry-potter Kim).

    I just lumped you under Eclipse, haven’t created a special section for you yet 🙂

    Also, notice the “+” icon isn’t expanded under UI, so you’re really under Eclipse.

    Okay, I should have looked more closely. Sorry about that. People consistently confuse our identities so I assumed it had happened again 🙂

    Much like you, I also have to keep my Sametime window very wide to accommodate Janek’s super-long last name (15 letters + 1 hyphen 🙂

    How come I’m not on your list? Surely I’m more to you than just a free beer ticket!! 😉
