We are discussing about using RAP, which is a web version of RCP (RCP is
the eclipse rich client). The interface would be the same than with a
rich client, except that it will be a WEB UI. You kill two birds with
one stone.

Now, yes, finding WebUI developers is easier, but OTOH, developping teh
GUI in eclipse is not *that* complex. I started 3 months ago, and I'm
now quite efficient at it. I would rather say that once you are used to
it, it's easier than fighting with CSS, JS, different flavors of
Browser, etc, because that is an eternel and excruciating pain, which
only increase.

More than that, I'm sure Stefan or me are willing to help someone who
would like to start coding in Eclipse RCP.
