<h2>Exercises Overview:
Building an RCP application in six step-by-step exercises</h2>

The hands-on exercises will guide you through setting up a 
typical Tycho project for an RCP application.<br/>
<li>We start from scratch with a small "Hello World" RCP plugin,</li>
<li>Add a simple unit test to make sure the plugin works, and</li>
<li>Create a feature for grouping the plugins we want to deliver.</li>
<li>Then, we create a p2 repository/update site containing our feature(s)
and bundles, and </li>
<li>Add a product with native launcher binaries, branding etc.</li>
<li>Finally, we make sure that other developers can also work on the RCP application project by using a target file to define the target platform.</li>

<h2>Table Of Contents</h2>
The exercises consist of six steps:
<li> <a href="exercises/Exercise_01_Create_RCP_Bundle/README.html">Build a simple RCP plugin</a></li>
<li> <a href="exercises/Exercise_02_Add_Test_Fragment/tychodemo.parent/README.html">Build and execute a simple test</a></li>

Each step has a subfolder with stub content as a starting point.<br/>
The links above give detailed step-by-step instructions for each step.<br/>
The folder for an exercise is at the same time starting point for the current exercise and solution of the previous one.<br/>
