RAP

The RAP plan is part of our long term strategy.

There is much work to do before then, moving Jalview onto an OSGI platform. We are also interested in creating a pure javascript component using java2script.

I suggest you see the genbank parser through before moving on to any other coding, but if you'd like to read up about the RAP concepts and take a look at the architecture, that would be good.

Jim,

I've taking a look at RAP (http://eclipse.org/rap). The idea of coding
only once and run the application in different user devices it's
really wonderful. However, my main concern is the availabilty of
third-party library components ready to be integrated in RAP
applications. Apart from RAP Community Forums, I haven't found any
provider or similar. On the other side, other Ajax frameworks (jquery
with/without JSF) have a broader support.

Anyway, I'm ready to learn RAP and start developing. 8) If you create
a RAP Jalview branch, I will start converting the GUI classes into RAP
classes and see what happens. Or do you have another plans?

Cheers,
