I have installed the ECF plugin, and try to run the Example Shared Text
Editor. I follow the instructions in the wiki
(http://wiki.eclipse.org/Example_Shared_Text_Editor), and start an ECF
server on localhost:3282 first. Then I start two eclipse instances, and
connect to my ECF server. The two instances can talk to each other, and
one instance can send screen capture, send private message and ring the
other one, but can not send file. In the wiki, it says that I can adjust
connection parameters in eclipse preferences (team -> ECF Editor Sharing),
but I do not have this entry in my eclipse preferences. When I create a
java or text file in one instance and right click on the file, I don't
have the Team -> Initiate Shared Session entry. In addtion, I don't have
Team -> Shared Editor Session entry in File -> New neither.
I use eclipse 3.4 and ECF 2.0, and I start my ECF server in a separated
eclipse instance. I can not use the MSN, XMPP and IRC provider in my firm.
Can anybody give me some suggestions to find out the problem?

The main problem is that we have some history here. Before Cola was
created/introduced, we had a shared editor (described by
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Example_Shared_Text_Editor) that was completely
'optimistic'...i.e. it had none of the error correction that Cola has.

We've pretty much deprecated this old work (and removed it from the
codebase) in favor of concentrating on Cola/DocShare. My apologies for
not removing the old documentation...I've updated that page to now point
to the DocShare/Cola documentation.

So currently, the ECF generic server and client example collaboration
application does not support running Cola/Docshare...rather we focussed
initially (in 3.4/ECF 2.0.0) on running Cola/Docshare with XMPP, Skype.
It can/could rather easily support running docshare, since Docshare
uses the ECF datashare API (org.eclipse.ecf.datashare), and the ECF
generic server and client also support the datashare API BUT so far we
have not added the logic to make a DocShare instance available on the
ECF generic server and the collab example client (which is pretty much
all that it would take). This is only because we haven't been able to
get to it. If you would like us to focus on this specifically please
open an enhancement request for that (e.g. 'Add support for RT shared
editing to example collab application').

Again, my apologies for the out-of-date documentation.

Thanks,

Scott

Thank you very much. I think ECF server is not the best way to solve my
problem. So I will wait for SIP provider coming, and run DocShare/Cola
then.
