This is a page for planning ECF-based application sharing.

Here's a relevant recent dialog from the ECF newsgroup:

Yes. I would like to see using the VNC protocol to sharing UI contents as images (in point to point and multipoint) and using remote keyboard and mouse input to drive a local application (as VNC does). In keeping with the ECF approach, I think it would make sense to define an API for application sharing, and then pair with that an implementation based upon VNC specifically (but leave open the possibility that other app sharing protocols can/would be used via other ECF providers).
