“Eclipse Rich Client Platform” book – Revised third edition available based on Eclipse 4.4

I’m happy to announce that the revisted third edition of the Eclipse RCP book is available. It has been updated to Eclipse 4.4 and contains lots of small corrections and clarifications. The update resulted in approx. 100 more pages.

    When would this be available on Safari? I see that the earlier editions are already available there.

  2. Lars Vogel says:

    @Mrinal A version for Apples Platform is not planned. Our Mac died a while ago and unfortunately the very low sold units via Apples platform do not justify the purchase of a new Mac.

  3. Andreas Sewe says:

    I think Mrinal meant Safari Books Online, which AFAIK has nothing to do with Apple but everything with O’Reilly.

  4. Lars Vogel says:

    @Andreas, AFAIK we never published at https://www.safaribooksonline.com/. @Mrinal, can you post the link to an earlier edition which is published where?

  5. Lars Vogel says:

    Mrinal, these are not my books. 😉

    Lars, Now that you are a PDE committer and architecture council member (congrats for that and sorry for breaking it here first) I guess it would be helpful if you can team up with the Chris et al who are also part of the PDE project and provide a unified source of knowldege.

    From the readers point of view, it would be helpful having a single point of reference from the lead contributors of a project rather than going through separate books (which seems more like the authors couldn’t agree with each other being on the same project)

    Moreover, it does save us some $$ when we can access it through Safari which, I am sure, many of us use.

  7. Lars Vogel says:

    @Mrinal, AFAIK Chris is not active in the Eclipse development work. Safari is a platform special by O’Reilly and we do the publishing ourself.

    The book from Chris et al describes the Eclipse 3.x API so it is a good source if you plan to target Eclipse 3.x RCP. My book covers Eclipse 4.x RCP so the overlap is minimal.

    The Kindle edition is very cheap. I hope you will be able to spend the price of two McDonalds meals for a book with approx. 800 printed pages.
