New RAP Clients with the RAP Protocol?
A RAP client for the iPhone?
Holger Staudacher has revealed that he is working on some new ideas
for the RAP protocol as part of a research project.
These focus around different RAP clients, including a RAP client
for the iPhone. Theoretically, this would allow the developer to
switch their target and create an iPhone application based on the
developer’s pre-existing RCP code, without changing changing said
“To put it all in a nutshell you will be able to use your RCP
code on one server and access it with n clients using n different
client technologies,” Staudacher predicts.
He is optimistic, revealing that the first tests are promising,
and that he perceives RAP to be on its way to different RAP
clients. Please see his blog post for more information.
