LibreSource : services for hosting virtual teams

Participants : Pascal Molli [responsable], Guillaume Bort, François Charoy, Claude Godart, Sébastien Jourdain, Gérald Oster.

LibreSource allows a virtual team to organize and its participants to cooperate. Its objective are in the vein of BSCW's, SourceForge's and Toxic Farm's, but with a particular focus on coordination and an original and more efficient object sharing strategy, resting on an original vision where copy convergence is based on the operational transformation approach which provides for a safe and generic synchronizer. LibreSource integrates services for object sharing, communication, task management and group awareness. Classical synchronous and asynchronous communication tools are integrated. Task management provides to-do-lists and flexible workflows (Bonita). LibreSource is implemented on a J2EE application server. It is available on Jboss and Jonas. It is developed in the frame of the RNTL PureSource project (cf 7.1).
