I believe that KOI could be used to implement the core ECF abstractions
of a simple container (a lightweight container for communications
applications) and a set of shared objects (communications components).
KOI could easily provide a valid implementation of such a container.
That being said, I'm not sure what remains active of the KOI project.
One slight 'impedance mismatch' between KOI and ECF is that as I
understand, KOI was based upon XML-RPC...which, although a fine protocol
for client-server communications, doesn't scale well to peer-to-peer
(multipoint) asynchronous messaging and scalable communications. We
think this makes it less well suited to some of the applications ECF is
hoping to enable...e.g. peer-to-peer messaging, file sharing, IM,
But, like I said it should be possible to use KOI to implement the ECF
container abstractions, and I hope that we and/or others would be able
to do this. If we can encourage or enable such an effort, we will do so.
