I’ve started working through the list of submissions for EclipseCon 2006. There’s a lot of great stuff there. There’s a tonne of talks and tutorials on the Developer track which is, of course, great. There are a bunch on the User track and I can see about seven on the Business track.
One of the talks in the business track jumped out at me. It’s titled “Web Applications are dead – Eclipse RCP rocks” and was submitted by Joachim Hagger. The abstract is a little more balanced. This short talk apparently discusses the relative merits of the different kinds of technologies you can choose and under what conditions you might choose them. So, it appears to be more (much more) than an “Eclipse RCP can do anything” talk; rather, it appears to offer real advice on when to choose what client technology.
