Corona uses an Eclipse based server-side environment to manage its workgroup environment.  Eclipse (non-ui) plug-ins can be deployed to Corona’s server to provide persistent handling of workgroup actions and events. These server-side plug-ins provide web service endpoints and/or participate in Corona’s event model to increase the value of commercial software solutions through cross-product integration.

Examples of collaboration context include:
 +
* Data Collaboration

** Data containers (e.g. database)
 +
** Web services
 +
** Messaging
 +
* Workgroup Collaboration
 +
** Eclipse Team framework
 +
** Eclipse Communication Framework
 +
*** Instant Messaging
  
The cornerstone of Corona is its context container (ContextContainer).  This specialized container is shared with all members of the workgroup.  It is the common context for collaboration within the workgroup. The ContextContainer defines the set repositories (RepositoryDescriptors) needed for Eclipse applications to participate in the workgroup collaboration solution.

As the Tools Services Framework, Corona provides an Eclipsed based server-side environment to host tools server-side components.  This provides the platform for a tool to manage their collaboration context within a distributed environment.

Corona Project - Tools Services Framework

Corona is the Eclipse Tools Services Framework that enables collaboration of people and/or software components. Collaboration is the process of two or more entities working together for a common goal. Collaboration occurs within a context of a container used to host the collaboration.

Examples of collaboration context include:

  • Data Collaboration
    • Data containers (e.g. database)
    • Web services
    • Messaging
  • Workgroup Collaboration
    • Eclipse Team framework
    • Eclipse Communication Framework
      • Instant Messaging

As the Tools Services Framework, Corona provides an Eclipsed based server-side environment to host tools server-side components. This provides the platform for a tool to manage their collaboration context within a distributed environment.

Project Goals

  • Provide Eclipse based server-side environment to manage Corona's workgroup environment
    • Provide an OSGi-based SOA component framework for server-side Eclipse plug-in deployment.
    • Provide manageability of component and resources
  • Provide a context for collaboration within a distributed workgroup environment
    • Distributed Event Model
  • Provide a SDK for create Corona hosted plug-ins
Notes
An update to project proposal is being drafted. The intent is to establish an Eclipse server-side platform that provides a consistent development and deployment model that is compatible with the RCP paradigm. The proposal is based upon the merger of the Eclipse Gyrex and Corona projects.

The Corona project will be merged with the Gyrex project. Once the merge is complete, the Corona project will be archived. Please see the following wiki page for merge plan details.
