Hello,

I will meet with Mustafa in February do start working on the shared
editing API.

I already did some work on the use cases for shared editing last week
(summarization of the work see below), but after some struggle I don't
think I manage do to that by myself and therefore will pause the work
until meeting with Mustafa in February.

If there is anyone who would also like to do something, please feel free
to contact Mustafa or me so we can combine our efforts.

Kind regards
Judith

______Approaches For Shared Editing Use Cases_____

1) Application example using (hand-drawn) pictures of a student group (3
students), using this application for distributed pair programming,
following a kind of narrative get to know the application from step to
step approach

2) Application example using (hand-drwan) pictures of a software company
(many employees), using this application for distributed pair
programming, here just pick some examplatory scenarios

3) Use Case Definitions UML (text-based description of possible user
actions)

I had the following problems with the three approaches mentioned above:

In the first approach I started with how the people met and what is
important in community building and community interaction, because I
think this is also required in a collaboration framework, how get people
get to know each other and how do the find the right person (with
fitting skills and profile) to match their search.

Since this is a vast area I thought, maybe that's loosing the way and
definitely too much for a first approch of shared editing only,
therefore I tried the second approach.

I described the scenario of one software developer connecting to the
(fictive) software-developing software and then the work he does with
some other developers he meets there. Editing the same source code
together (pair-programming) using the java-editor but also the plug-in
manifest editor.
Then thinking about to apply something knew using a shared whiteboard to
exchange ideas and then using an (gef-based) uml editor to draw some
basic design decisions they made after drawing sketches on the
whiteboard.

That also turned out to be a little more than I first expected, because
I wasn't satisfied with the example software those guys are developing
and I started with a chinese learning software, then a document
management system, but I didn't manage to get a "small" and fitting
enough example to demonstrate the shared editing features as well as
some group-awareness features.

The third approach therefore was the idea of just focusing on shared
editing with text editors, just to get something basic work done, but I
never really wrote such UML uses cases by myself and I do have problems
identifying the basic use cases and actors and I think there won't be a
very usefull result if I do this on my own.

Hi all,
I download some parts of ecf from cvs. I have found some problems in
MANIFEST.MF file: org.eclipse.equinox.common;bundle-version="3.4.0" in
org.eclipse.ecf.tests.remoteservice and org.eclipse.ecf.tests.presence .
But I have Eclipse 3.3...I've solved changing that value to "3.3.0" and
now it seems to work correctly.

Bye,
Pasquale.

Hi Pasquale,

Thanks for the report. I've updated the manifests for these two
projects appropriately.

Scott
