Notification servers for synchronous groupware

John F. Patterson, Mark Day, Jakov Kucan
1996 Proceedings of the 1996 ACM conference on Computer supported cooperative work - CSCW '96  
We introduce the Notification Service Transfer Protocol (NSTP), which provides a simple, common service for sharing state in synchronous multi-user applications.  ...  Instead, the responsibility for semantics and processing falls on the clients, which collude to implement the application.  ...  Our approach, the Notification Service Transfer Protocol (NSTP), abstracts out the problem of state consistency from any particular application.  ...

Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Tim Mansfield, Simon Kaplan, David Arnold, Ted Phelps, Bill Segall
1999 ECSCW' 99  
Examples of its uses include: support for interaction via bi-directional chat-like facilities as well as support for uni-directional notifications, for example push-based information from services such  ...  We report the story of how our content-based pure notification service, called Elvin, became widely adopted in our organisation and elsewhere, augmenting the virtual work environment, and providing perceptual  ...  We acknowledge Sara Parsowith for her work on earlier evaluations of Tickertape usage.  ...

The MAUI Toolkit: Groupware Widgets for Group Awareness

Jason Hill, Carl Gutwin
2004 Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)  
Group awareness is an important part of synchronous collaboration, and support for group awareness can greatly improve groupware usability.  ...  The toolkit provides the first ever set of UI widgets that are truly collaboration-aware, and provides them in a way that greatly simplifies the construction and testing of rich groupware interfaces.  ...  Also, there have also been a number of architectures and protocols proposed for handling the transmission of awareness information at the infrastructure level.  ...

Supporting Public Availability and Accessibility with Elvin: Experiences and Reflections

Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Simon Kaplan, Tim Mansfield, David Arnold, Bill Segall
2002 Computer Supported Cooperative Work (CSCW)  
Technically, the conceptual simplicity of the Elvin notification, the wide availability of its APIs, and the generic functionality of its clients, especially Tickertape, have made the use of the service  ...  We provide a retrospective account of how a generic event notification service called Elvin and a suite of simple client applications: CoffeeBiff, Tickertape and Tickerchat, came to be used within our  ...  Perhaps the best known CSCW notification service is Lotus Place-Holder, which is based on Notification Service Transfer Protocol or NSTP (?).  ...

Beyond Web technology-lessons learnt from BSCW

T. Koch, W. Appelt
Proceedings Seventh IEEE International Workshop on Enabling Technologies: Infrastucture for Collaborative Enterprises (WET ICE '98) (Cat. No.98TB100253)  
The Web provides a common infrastructure for building easily accessible applications, but these still suffer from inherent shortcomings of the underlying Web technology.  ...  We describe the BSCW shared workspace system, a Web based groupware system developed at GMD.  ...  Within this project, extensions of the BSCW system are contributed by our project partners at the Swedish Institute for System Development (SISU).  ...

Tolerating client and communication failures in distributed groupware systems

Hyong Sop Shim, A. Prakash
Proceedings Seventeenth IEEE Symposium on Reliable Distributed Systems (Cat. No.98CB36281)  
If a groupware system is to be effectively used, especially over a wide-are network such as the Internet, where the quality of networking and computing resources are unpredictable, it should allow clients  ...  In order to allow groups to tolerate transient failures, Corona also provides locks with grace period and group membership notification services that are based on client connection status.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is supported in part by the National Science Foundation under cooperative agreement IRI-9216848, by the IBM Research Partnership Award, and an equipment Grant from Intel.  ...

CUSTOMIZABLE DATA DISTRIBUTION FOR SYNCHRONOUS GROUPWARE
english

2004 Proceedings of the 4th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Information Systems   unpublished
There have been a lot of discussions about the best distribution scheme for the state of a groupware application.  ...  The state of a groupware application must be shared to support interactions between collaborating users.  ...  Rendezvous (Hill et al., 1994) , Suite (Dewan and Choudhary, 1992) , and Notification Service Transfer Protocol (NSTP) (Patterson et al., 1996) are sample groupware platforms, which use a central distribution  ...
