Rich Ajax Platform (RAP) for Eclipse [JFace, SWT API, qooxdoo]

Hi,

found this one last night and thought some of you may find it
interesting. While this is only partially Javascript it is a pretty
interesting project for enterprise web-developers.

From their website (http://www.eclipse.org/rap/index.php):

The RAP project enables developers to build rich, Ajax-enabled Web
applications by using the Eclipse development model, plug-ins with the
well known Eclipse workbench extenstion points, JFace, and a widget
toolkit with SWT API (using qooxdoo for the client-side
presentation). The project has graduated from incubation and released
its 1.0 release.

Very roughly said, you write your application as an Eclipse RCP and
publish it to the web, where it will be displayed in the browser,
without the need for Java on the client-side, instead the client-side is
pure Ajax, using the 'qooxdoo' widget-toolkit, which seems a bit like
the YUI, at least from the targeted audience point of view.

I think, that this is, for some, very nice.

Is this another "write everything in Java and compile to JavaScript
for the client-side" project similar to GWT?

Thank,
Peter

I don't know. I don't use it.

(To be more precise, I should probably also mention what...

To make it short: Is there something like this already? There seem to loads of python frameworks for Web-Apps, but I have a hard time finding one for desktop-apps. I imagine it wouldn't be too hard (if still time consuming) whipping up something simple myself, but I thought, I'd ask here before diving into it. greets wildemar
