ECF Users

This page provides information about resources for Eclipse ECF Users.

If you are a user taking advantage of ECF's incredible features to write your own software, then consider yourself a user. If you are writing code to make ECF itself better, consider yourself a contributor.

Users should look mainly at the Eclipse newsgroup while contributors should focus mainly on the mailing list. Both groups may be interested in the Eclipse Wiki.

The distinction between users and contributors is somewhat blurred if you are using ECF to contribute software to another Eclipse project. If you fall in that category, look at both user and contributor information.

Getting Started

Newsgroup

The Eclipse Communications Framework newsgroup is for anything and everything ECF related.
You will need a newsgroup username and password from Eclipse.org to participate

news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.technology.ecf

Bug Reporting

Please use Bugzilla to report any bugs you find.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs

ECF Wiki

You can find a great deal of information about ECF on the ECF Wiki

Mailing List

The ECF mailing list is for developers working on ECF code to discuss development related issues.
If you are "kicking the tires" or using ECF to develop your own communications applications,
please post questions on the newsgroup rather than the developers mailing list.

ecf-dev@eclipse.org

You must subscribe to the ecf-dev mailing list if you want to send email to that list.

You can read the mailing list archive without joining the list.
