Hi,



I am looking something to share EMF model between clients. Jeremy pointed me
to ECF, thanks for that, I had few read and got basic idea, I guess.

Looks it may solve my problem, but not sure. I wonder if one can provide
some input on my scenario and thoughts if ECF is right approach for the
problem. And if so, please do point me to some starting point for the same.
Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated. Just to add further that
I am new to eclipse platform.



Scenario:

Need to develop some kind of IDE type application, where number of users can
work on same project. Project data is stored in a central repository. If
user is not connected to the central repository then one can work locally
and project data is synchronised with the central repository on connection
with the server.



Thanks,

Parvez

Parvez,

ECF can indeed be used for this use case.

We've recently (with 0.6.1 and 0.6.2) introduced two new APIs that are
useful for distributing files (fileshare--org.eclipse.ecf.datashare) and
byte []s (datashare--org.eclipse.ecf.fileshare). These APIs should make
it easier to distribute local state changes as they occur.

Note that ECF applications can/could simply use CVS or other protocols
to retrieve data from servers and/or synchronize...that is the ECF
applications might just invoke eclipse CVS plugin code to communicate
with CVS repository. Such communication can also be triggered via
remote events...e.g. someone else on a team sending a message that
triggers all receivers to synchronize a certain resource or set of
resources with a remote (CVS) repository.

Sorry about the slow response...I missed this posting when it first
occurred.

Scott

Thanks for the update Scott, appreciated that. In our case, relational
database is going to be a central repository instead of CVS or file
based approach, but that will work as well.

Parvez
