Re: [ecf-dev] Listing shared files

Hi Gary,

Once I get our server working, hopefully next week, I'd like to get more
involved and do some of the maintenance work so I can get familiar with the
code and API. Any suggestions on where to begin, 
The plugin test code and examples are a good place to start, I think.  The following plugins have useful test code to look at:


There is some useful example client code in


The collab app is also helpful to look at:


Also the packages/code particularly for the API plugins:


The docs available here are not (yet) good, but the do provide some useful info:  http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/documentation.html

And see here for EclipseCon tutorial materials and Chris A's nice tutorial:  http://www.eclipse.org/ecf/  (under What's New).

and where to find tasks
that I might be able to work on?

We haven't narrowed things down to a specific set of tasks given the replanning that started shortly after EclipseCon 2006.  Here are the sub-project planning pages on the wiki (Under major sub-projects):


We need to identify specific tasks associated with these sub projects, and connect people up with the tasks created.    In addition to the subprojects listed on this page, there are other community members working on bugs/enhancement requests

(jxta provider):  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=135452
(automated build):  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=135450
(ui features for chat/IM):  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=110894, and https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=110896
(documentation/tutorial):  https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=136354, and https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=135453, https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=126505

And we've been coordinating via this mailing list WRT other issues.  I think I'm going to try to startup bi-weekly conference calls again in order to coordinate further among both the committers and the (new) contributors like Gary.

And Gary...thanks for your willingness to get involved and to help.

Subject: Re: [ecf-dev] Listing shared files

Hi Tim,

Ken Gilmer (primarily...and I to a much lesser degree) have 
been working on some example shared editors:  

This shared editor uses the datashare api:  
org.eclipse.ecf.datashare (API plugin) for sharing document 
changes in real time among a set of participants.

If this is what you mean by 'being able to see what is 
shared' then this would be appropriate for that as well.

Or do you mean listing remote directory contents? (I'm not 
quite sure from your posting)  If directory listings are what 
you mean, then probably it would be appropriate to add some 
directory listing capability to the fileshare API...it 
currently does not have an API for listing directory 
contents, etc.  This is only because I/we yet haven't gotten 
to putting such an API in place...as I believe such a 
directory/listing API should be there as well.  Note that if 
you need something immediately then you could create a custom 
directory listing/sharing protocol using the datashare API.  
For example, you could use the workspace abstraction in 
Eclipse, and resource listeners to send around information 
about the local workspace (via datashare messages).  

And if you want to work on helping us add file/directory 
browsing to the fileshare API then that would also be most welcome.
