New RAP Clients with the RAP Protocol?
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 code.
“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.
