Hi

I want to get some information on ECF:

too. I tried connecting but due to some proxy settings I could n't connect. So
it would be great if you explain this feature.
> Can we integrate this to Some web based application.

Hi Digvijay,

We've got two editor-sharing example applications:

1) One that simply launches an editor on a team-shared (e.g. CVS
repository) resource. This isn't real-time shared editing in the sense
that I suspect you are looking for, as it was created to address a
different use case (some shared navigation through Eclipse-based
resources and their associated editors for online code reviews). This
editor sharing capability is implemented in the
org.eclipse.ecf.example.collab example application.

2) A second that is a real-time collaborative editing capability based
upon the original work of Ken Gilmer
( http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Example_Shared_Text_Editor) and then
extended/enhanced last summer (2006) by Mustafa Isik
(http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/RT_Shared_Editing). We would/are
moving the enhancements done by Mustafa into the main ECF codebase, but
this is not yet completed (as of 1.0.0M5, Feb 15 2007) due simply to
resource constraints, Eclipse Foundation IP process, and other
priorities (e.g. Europa participation). The older work done by Ken
Gilmer is currently in the 'ECF examples' feature...specifically in
org.eclipse.ecf.example.collab.editor plugin. The new version of this

:pserver:anonymous@ecf1.osuosl.org:/ecf

==path within repo==
/applications/org.eclipse.ecf.example.sharededitor.cola

Note that for '2' all the work is based upon the ECF 'datashare' API.
The datashare API is a simple API for asynchronously sending arbitrary
messages to a channel (with support for failure detection and
sender-ordered delivery).

The datashare API is in the org.eclipse.ecf.datashare plugin/package:

http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.docs/api/

If you and/or others are interested in working with us on further
enhancements to the ECF real-time shared editing work (i.e. #2 above),
please let us know. We would welcome the help.

Scott
