existing Eclipse 3.x based RCP applications is also briefly covered.
After a short introduction into the Eclipse platform, you perform a full
development cycle of an Eclipse 4 application, from creation to deployment.
After this first full development cycle, the book guides you through all aspects of
Eclipse 4 development using an extended example which you continue to extend

You will learn about the new programming concepts of Eclipse 4, e.g. the
application model, Dependency Injection, CSS styling, the Renderer Framework,
the Event system and much more.

services, Databinding, Internationalization, etc. are also covered in detail.
