RAP 1.0 M6 - New and Noteworthy

This document will become the New and Noteworthy page for the next milestone release and meanwhile serves to document the development progress.

All features documented here can be obtained from CVS HEAD.


RWT

Latest qooxdoo

We just migrated to the latest revision of qooxdoo, the client-side JavaScript library of RAP. Beside many bug fixes, with this update, two flavors of qooxdoo builds are provided. The one with which RAP runs by default is optimized in size and speed. Targeted to custom widget developers is the debug variant. When launching RAP with the -Dorg.eclipse.swt.clientLibraryVariant=debug VM argument, the debug version of qooxdoo is used that offers better readable JavaScript code.

RAP Forms

Forms Suppport

There is initial support for the Forms Toolkit, Forms Editors and the like. The focus was put on API compatibility and functionality rather than mimicking the exact look of RCP Forms. The following is a list of the things that are already available:

  • ColumnLayout and TableWrapLayout
  • ExpandableComposite and Section
  • Hyperlink, ImageHyperlink (yet without actually showing the image) and HyperlinkGroup
  • TreeNode, Twistie and their common ancestor ToggleHyperlink
  • ScrolledPageBook
  • Form and ScrolledForm, FormToolkit
  • Form editors (FormEditor, FormPage, SharedHeaderFormEditor)

Thanks to the donation of a Fortune 500 corporation we were able to acquire additional resources to have this implemented.
