RCP Sudoku is a Java Application. It will assist the user in solving Sudoku puzzles, either by providing a user friendly pencil and paper mode interface allowing the user to verify the validity of his input at any time, or by running a set of rules to reduce the remaining possibilities. If all rules are enabled, the program will automatically solve the game.
The project can be used to explore the use of the Eclipse SDK, and the plan is to produce two versions of the Sudoku program.
A standalone version with a Swing GUI
An Eclipse RCP Application with an SWT GUI
Exploiting Eclipse RCP for a small game might be equal to using a cannon to kill a rabbit, but I will try to demonstrate the use of RCP as a single window.
If someone wants to experiment with Sudoku and the rules for solving the game, the game can be run from inside the Eclipse IDE with all the facilities, that gives the developer.
