Thanks for putting together the notes, and for the call.
I'm looking forward to working out what atomic operations
I'll need, and seeing how this fits in with what's
available in ECF.
The other idea sounds really interesting too - sorry I
wasn't able to hang on the call for that.

This is a short summary of our call from earlier today,
James, Remy, Marcelo, Scott and I were on the call.
James outlined what their use case(s) for utilizing ECF
look like. They're apparently building an Eclipse-based
IDE for a not
further specified language - from what I understood,
along the lines of VHDL/hardware-descriptive.
The primary representation seems to be an abstract
model, which can be
mapped to various textual and graphical representations.
Real-Time Shared Editing which supports modification of
model representation is their main interest.
From an ECF point of view, James' interest is very
we've been thinking about tackling the extension of
beyond the text domain and struggling with coming up
with a suitable use
I've suggested that James watches the Cola Google Tech
Talk from last
year [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfeUCT-tRJQ ],
since in the case of
modification of graphical models, we will have to
operations, conflicts and resolutions that are different
editing. The general resolution mechanism will remain
The current plan is to follow up with another conference
next week or the week after.
In the second part of the call, I've shared an idea
about which Scott
and I had talked about during EclipseCon. I would love
for us to explore
the feasibility of extending and integrating Workspace
The use case I have in mind would involve a user to
share a project and
all initial resources with a remote user. All subsequent
changes to the
project, such as the addition and removal of resources
(e.g. new files
etc.) would be propagated to the respective remote site
As soon as two users open the same project file in an
editor, this new
integrated project sharing feature would initialize a
editing session for the file - also done transparently
Let's bounce this idea off of each other and brainstorm
if this would be
something you'd like to see materialize in one form or
Feedback is *welcome* ;)
