I've added the plugin Ken's been working on
(org.eclipse.ecf.example.collab.editor) to the set available via the
ecf-anonymous.psf team project set file.
Until we create a feature and build a release (0.7.8 this week), you
can get the plugin source via the project set file or get instructions
for anonymous CVS here
I've also created a wiki page for the ECF Shared Editor sub-project
work and put Ken's instructions for usage and screenshots here
Thanks to Ken for the great work! This app is very cool.

Hi again -
Based on my earlier email today, I wrote a rough implementation that
works as described. Here is a tour.
1. First create a text file in a project.
2. Go to eclipse preferences, team->ECF Editor Sharing. Adjust
connection parameters as necessary.
3. Right click on file and select Team -> Initiate Shared Session (http://kengilmer.com/shared_editor/s1.jpg)
4. At this point, you have created a shared editor instance. Now
others can connect.
5. Load another instance of eclipse, configure such that they point to
the same server and share container names.
6. File->New->Collaboration->Shared Editor Session. (http://kengilmer.com/shared_editor/s3.jpg)
7. The dialog will now show a window asking for local container, and
will list all active editor sessions. These sessions are global
to the ECF container name specified in preferences.
8. Select your file. The editor will be created, and saved to whatever
project container is specified.
9. Start typing. You should see changes on both editors. (http://kengilmer.com/shared_editor/s5.jpg)
The plugin is in ECF CVS, and is named
org.eclipse.ecf.example.collab.editor. Not sure if attachments
can be sent to the maillist so I'm posting the screenshots here:
Clearly this is very rough still but is I feel in some primitive sense
usable. Note that it's only currently working for text
editors. I'm still in the process of getting it to work with the
Java editor. Let me know what you think!
