Google Wave Federation Protocol: More Docs, More Code

Wednesday, April 7, 2010 | 9:29 PM

When we shipped the FedOne code to demonstrate the Google Wave Federation Protocol, we included some overview information and basic documentation on how to get it up and running. Since then, the community has stepped up and contributed some great documentation, and we wanted to highlight a couple of great resources that may be helpful to anyone interested in the Google Wave Federationn Protocol.

For example, Anthony Watkins wrote several articles to explain the architecture of the FedOne code:

In an effort to bring together this and other community-created resources in a single place, we've gathered links to Anthony's articles, along with links to articles by James Purser and Bryce into a wiki page. Be sure to check them out, and let us know if we've missed any great articles on the Google Wave Federation Protocol or the FedOne code. Share your links on the wave protocol discussion forum and we will update the wiki as they come in.

Also be sure to check out the new, recently open sourced wave document model code, as announced by J.D. in the Google Wave Protocol Forum:

We have just open sourced a significant new chunk of Google Wave source code: the wave document model. The new code, some thirty-eight thousand lines of code mainly in the org.waveprocotol.wave.model.document package, implements useful and efficient data structures for reading and manipulating wave documents. This is the same document model used by the Google Wave client and servers.

In case you missed it, Novell Pulse recently demonstrated federation with Google Wave.

Finally, be sure to visit us if you are attending Google I/O, there are some some great talks lined up, we hope to see you there!
