In November, I wrote about some experiments I did with Eclipse running on Apache Harmony. At the time, I was concerned exclusively with how much of the Eclipse SDK I could get running on the Harmony JRE. Today it occurred to me to try some of my Eclipse RCP applications running on it. Without exception, every application I tried worked fine with Eclipse RCP 3.2.1.
I’d post some pictures for Gunnar, but there’s really not much to show. The applications look and act exactly as they did before. Nothing particularly facinating from the user’s point-of-view.
Combine this with Chris’ fancy new PDE feature in Eclipse 3.3, and the packaging story for your RCP application gets a lot rosier.
