Hi!

If you are including Chat, Forums and Newsgroups in the scope, you
should consider ECF as an applicable Eclipse technology. It includes the
Presence API and Chat for instant messaging, and a Bulletin Board API is
incubating (a work in progress), which can currently access vBulletin
and phpBB forums (using "web scrapers") and I've started work privately
on an NNTP provider for accessing newsgroups through the same API.

I do hope the spaces project can find a way to use some of the ECF APIs.
We've already developed APIs needed for sharing arbitrary resources
(e.g. asynch file transfer, serialized object/model replication,
authentication/access control to a distributed group, support for
pluggable transport protocols, unique identifiers within Namespaces [and
extension point for introducing new namespaces], exstensible clients for
IRC/XMPP/Yahoo/MSN IM/Chat, bulletin board API w NNTP support, new Skype
provider (for IM/chat/skype VOIP), remote workspace control, shared
editors, etc).

Also, the Equinox provisioning incubator project

http://www.eclipse.org/equinox/incubator/provisioning/

is using ECF's asynch file transfer API...because it has pluggable
protocol support (ftp, bittorrent, http/https, etc) and runs on nearly
all execution environments (CDC 1.0/Foundation 1.0).

It would be quite a waste if the spaces project were to redevelop these
or introduce new mechanisms doing the same things.

Please let us know if we can help. ecf-dev@eclipse.org or me at
slewis@composent.com.
