Hi,

I recently found out about Eclipse Communication Framework (ECF) but unfortunately, I can't use it. I can't join the session when I press the "Connect to ECF Generic Collaboration Group" button.

I also tried the "eclipse.exe -console -application org.eclipse.ecf.provider.AppGenericServer 1234" but received error instead (Application "org.eclipse.ecf.provider.AppGenericServer" could not be found in the registry.).

How do I solve this problem in order to connect to the server?

Btw, I'm using Eclipse Kepler.

Thanks in advance.

Regards.

Hi Liana,

AFAIK there is no public server running anymore. So unless you run your
own server, you won't be able to connect.

Markus is correct...there is no longer a public collab/chat server for ECF. There are two reasons for this:

1) We don't currently have the admin support to be able to admin multiple public servers;
2) There are now quite a large number of different kinds of ECF server applications (e.g. server for collab app, server for remote services, event admin, alternative providers...e.g. r-osgi, jms, etc), and so problem 1 is quite a difficult one for us...i.e. we are forced to choose which servers to run...and for how long.

However, you can run an ECF generic server by running this command

eclipse.exe -console -application org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic.Server

This should produce console output like this:

osgi>
Generic server started with id=ecftcp://localhost:3282/server

You may then connect to this server within Eclipse's ECF Collaboration view with this ID: ecftcp://localhost:3282/server

Client connects should result in the server console output like this:

Client Connect Addr=/127.0.0.1:58050;ID=StringID[p8C7XCJ9HmHszEvrvaM8ftAL7Sg=];G
roup=/server

Note, that for thie org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic.Server application that you can specify a configURL to change the hostname/port/path of the server:

eclipse.exe -console -application org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic.Server -serverName ecftcp://localhost:3284/myserver

Note also that the org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic.Server app can be started/debuged from within Eclipse, and the source for the application is in this class: org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic.app.GenericServerApplication

Which is in this project/bundle: org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic. This project is in the ECF git repo here:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/ecf/org.eclipse.ecf.git/tree/server-side/bundles/org.eclipse.ecf.server.generic

Note also that we are doing some feature restructuring right now...see this bug:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=409787

specifically around better supporting server/non-Eclipse uses of ECF.

Thank you for replying.

I followed your instructions however when Eclipse started, it is not responding and pop out a message.

As attached is the screenshot of the message.

Liana
