Hello ECF Developers,

would we like to use collections of design patterns to communicate
problems and its solutions?

I am thinking about the Shared Editing API and I know (a little) the
patterns from the book "Patterns for Computer-Mediated Interaction" from

I think it would be great to record your thoughts and observations about
collaboration design patterns in the ECF Wiki.

There are a number of sw patterns used in ECF...e.g. adapters, command
pattern, listeners, etc. But these are at the API/sw design level...not
at the communication/collaboration level. So any analysis of
collaboration design patterns and their possible connection to ECF
and/or Eclipse mechanisms/APIs would be wonderful.

As a quick aside...a lot of my own work/interest in team collaboration
is based upon the notion that 'spontaneous collaboration' is frequently
how things really work, and mechanisms/sw to support spontaneous
collaboration must be appropriately dynamic, lightweight, and a 'good
fit' to both team-specific and organization-specific processes.

I don't think they will be, but I am not sure how this usually works.
What about the design patterns from Gamma? I do not know if they are
available freely or if you do have to buy the book. Do you know a free
source?

If there is interest to use those patterns, which I also think is nice,
since they already covered a lot of collaboration knowledge, I can ask
Stephan and Till what their arrangement with the publisher is and what
probably will happen in the future.

Kind regards
Judith
