Starting in 2008 we created a repository / data warehouse storing statistical data and meta data. An Eclipse RCP client is being used to provide an interface for expert users such as data administrators and programmers to manage and explore data, meta data and structure definitions, authorizations, and to develop and run scripts based on a Groovy DSL to automate processes. After a successful roll-out in 2010, we are working on the 3rd release.
Creating and maintaining this application taught us many lessons we want to share. You will see the benefits of and the challenges in using Eclipse RCP when building a big and important application.
