Import CSS files in Eclipse Luna M6

Eclipse Luna M6 allows you to include other CSS stylesheets. For example to use the new Eclipse dark theme in your RCP application, do the following:

In your RCP application created a /css/default.css file with only one instruction

@import url(“platform:/plugin/org.eclipse.ui.themes/css/e4-dark.css”);

Add org.eclipse.ui.themes to your RCP product and add the applicationCSS property pointing to platform:/plugin/test/css/default.css in your product extension point. If you start your application is is dark styled.
