IBM WPC, WCT, RCP? Confused?

by Volker Weber

There seems to be some confusion about the terms used to describe the technology behind the IBM Workplace Client, short WPC. I have added to this confusion myself by using the term "Smart Client" which seems to be a term that Microsoft would use.

Heidi Votaw talked at Lotusphere about IBM Workplace Client Technology, short IBM WCT. In the Eclipse 3.0 space you will find [Eclipse Rich Client Platform], short RCP. This seems to be technology that is being contributed by IBM to Eclipse.

I added a page to my wiki so we can sort this out.
