How to create an RCP application

Select File -> New -> Other… and choose Plug-in Project, then Next.

In Project name field let’s give a name to our project, e.g.
it.rcpvision.rcptutorial.application
leave other options unchanged and press Next.

At the next step let’s make sure that Would you like to create a rich client application? flag is selected and press Next.

At next wizard step let’s select the Hello RCP Template, then Next

and give a name to our application, e.g. Library Manager

and press Finish.
At the next popup

we can select Remember my decision and press No (Java perspective is more than enough for our purposes).
The plugin editor will then show up. It is a multi-page editor, in fact it is composed by a number of Tabs.
From the first tab (Overview) we can test the launch of our application, just with a click on the Launch an Eclipse application link in the Testing section.

we should now see our application running, like this

which is an empty application, of course, ready to be filled with Menus, Views, Editors and so on.
