My knowledge regarding the subject (rcp vs plug-ins) is that there is very small discrepancy between an eclipse plugin and a rcp "standalone" application?. So much of whats true about plugins in the book is also true for rcp systems?

Correct. Our book is an excellent book to help you write RCP applcations...especially in conjunction with the companion RCP book (by McAffer & Lemieux) in the same series.

I have the 2nd edition of the book and it was/is a great help. It covered the differences between RCP and plug-ins with some examples for how to build a simple RCP app. I assume the new version would offer something similar.
