Extending Real-Time Shared Editing for Use with Other Editors

With ECF 2.0.0/Ganymede, ECF introduces Real-Time Shared Editing.

By default, ECF supports doing shared editing with the JDT Java source code editor, and/or the plain old texteditor.

It's quite possible, however, and even easy, to support using the ECF real-time shared editing and synchronization with other types of text editors...for supporting shared editing source code for other languages (e.g. php, C/C++, javascript, xml editors, others) as well as shared editing of other types of text documents (properties editors, manifest/meta-data editors, etc.).

Below is a short explanation of how ECF supports doing real-time shared editing for the Java source code editor and the default text editor, and a short example of how ECF real-time shared editing can be added to other text editors.
