Mylyn/SOC/2007/Synchronous context sharing with Mylyn and ECF
- Jevgeni Holodkov
- Mik Kersten
This is about Mylar synchronous context sharing among team members by means of Mylar and ECF integration. The goal of such context sharing is to provide more seamless knowledge sharing process, allow sharing context synchronous even if the used connector does not support context sharing or no connectors used at all.
The synchronous context sharing means that it is possible to share context on fly with a friend who is currently online and you are discussing some issue. It will be possible to create a task for new context or assign this context to an existing one.
Technically, the solution will use ECF to handle all communication details. I will try to employ current Mylar’s context sharing functionality. This solution will provide SWT-based user-interface for context sharing and I will also include the rainy scenarios handling, such as “no connection with friend” or “file resources are out of sync”.
• May 28 to June 11 – will integrate Mylar and ECF, solution will be able to handle raw data exchange by the end of this period • June 11 to June 25 – will integrate context update with communication framework. A user friendly interface building will be started • June 25 to July 9 –Sunny scenario is implemented by this time. This means that it is possible to do a context sharing by means of Mylar UI if the are no problem • July 9 to August 6 – Different rainy scenarios handling implementation, such as no connection, resources out of sync and so on. • August 6 to August 20 – application finalization, remained bugs fixing, will update user guide, write a simple tutorial how to use Mylar sync context sharing
