The last Milestone build of Eclipse Scout is live and ready for testing. You can update your Eclipse via P2-Updatesite: The Kepler M7 Package is available from here:

Multiple Swing Scout features in a single Eclipse application

bug 396252

The extension point org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swing.appextensions allows running multiple swing Scout features in a single Eclipse application.

Example: Create multiple applications extensions (e.g.):


public class App1 extends AbstractSwingApplicationExtension { public App1() { super("App1"); } @Override protected IClientSession createClientSession(UserAgent userAgent) { IClientSessionRegistryService service = SERVICES.getService(IClientSessionRegistryService.class); return service.newClientSession(ClientSession.class, userAgent); } @Override protected ISwingEnvironment createEnvironment() { return new SwingEnvironment(); } }


Register ExtensibleSwingApplication as application and the previously created applications extensions:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <plugin> <extension id="app" name="Application" point="org.eclipse.core.runtime.applications"> <application> <run/> </application> </extension> ... <extension point="org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swing.appextensions"> <swingApplicationExtension ranking="1"> </swingApplicationExtension> </extension> ...


SWT: Visual Marker in editable cell

bug 395673

A marker icon is now displayed in an editable cell in an SWT table (similar to the swing table).

The icon can be changed by setting the extension org.eclipse.scout.rt.ui.swt.scouticons for the cell_editable icon.
