A simple auto-updater for Eclipse RCP applications

One of the most common requests I get from my consulting clients is for an easy way to auto-update deployed Eclipse RCP applications. Particularly in enterprise environments these clients have many deployed installations and often require different feature sets deployed to different user groups. I’ve found that for most of my clients a very simple… Continue reading A simple auto-updater for Eclipse RCP applications
