What is the job market like for Eclipse RCP developers? I’d say it’s pretty good. In my experience, people with RCP experience can demand their terms and sometimes even work remotely. There still isn’t a huge pool of developers with this expertise and demand seems to be increasing. If you’re looking for proof, check out this graph of historical Eclipse RCP job postings.
The overall numbers are still small compared to standard J2EE/web development, but things are definitely moving in the right direction. It looks like 2008 is going to be a good year for RCP developers!
