Corona is about tool integration. To achieve this, Corona will enable
Eclipse constructs, such as a "project", to be shared in a distributed
environment. This requires Corona to have an Eclipse based server-side
runtime environment that can manage these common constructs.
With that brief explanation, an exemplary (RCP based) Tool X candidate for
Corona would be any tool that would benefit from collaboration involving
Consider how the JDT is used. Each developer has its own Eclipse workbench
using the JDT. Each developer has its own definition of a "project" that
has been mapped to a CVS repository. Currently these are manually
synchronized with CVS. Developers are not aware of changes being done by
their peers without any manual intervention.
Corona will enable the concept of a shared "project" across multiple RCP
instances (aka workgroup). Corona will tap into the Eclipse event model and
listen for resource change events within the RCP. Any of these events that
are considered a collaboration type event will be posted to the shared
"project" definition managed by Corona. These collaboration events will
also be distributed to any other RCP that has the same shared "project"
open. This will enable the workgroup to have a shared view of project
This scenario for an exemplary Tool X candidate could be used for
requirements tools, development tools, testing tools, etc. The value that
Corona brings is the shared context of a "project". This context can be
shared by tools within the same workgroup (ie: development tools) as well as
tools that span ALM steps. Corona's ability to manage the shared context of
a "project" enables a historical perspective of each "project" and its
artifacts as they travel across the ALM.
