The documentation at the eRCP site should be useful for figuring out the programming requirements:


There is basically the "e" version of many things in RCP such as eSWT, eJFace, eWorkbench, eUpdate, etc.

I think doing a good review of both RCP and eRCP before starting development would be good in order to design the software in a way that accomodates both frameworks. It would be useful if a "cross-platform" development guide for RCP and eRCP or maybe a porting from RCP to eRCP guide existed...

But at least the currently existing guides at http://www.eclipse.org/ercp/ are pretty useful..

Yes. I think you said it right. It should be a potential goal. From what 
I read, one needs to stick with the Java Foundation Classes, that is 
J2ME. Not familiar with it, but the real question is whether the 
libraries we use are compliant?
