The goal of the RAP Incubator project is to experiment with alternative ideas and technologies for enhancing and complementing RAP. For example, the evaluation of alternative client technologies for RAP and the integration with other innovative technologies, are possible areas of investigation for the RAP Incubator. In addition to this, the Incubator is also intended to serve as a forum for interested third parties and a place for the development of additional components and tools for RAP outside of the restrictions of the RAP project itself. This includes the development of additional custom widgets and components. Incubator components are intended to stay in the Incubator until they are mature enough to be integrated into the main development stream.
