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
An update to Corona's 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.
