    • Enterprise Groupware (Engroup) • Introduction • Features • Roadmap • Technical Requirements • Engroup Architecture • Development Status
    • Engroup introduction • Engroup is an open source groupware under GPL license. • Engroup powers the cooperation among company staff by providing the Chat, Wiki, Forum, etc. modules.
    • Engroup introduction (cont.) • In addition, Engroup provides the modules for company operations such as HRM, CRM, Document Management, Project Management • Engroup has been developed since 4/2008.
    • Features • Dashboard: News, Private Message and User Preferences. • Administrator: system and security configuration. • Human Resource Management: company and employee information. • Customer Relationship Management: basic customer contacts, lead, campaign information.
    • Features (cont.) • Forum: message board. • Wiki: knowledge management. • Mail: only IMAP is supported. • Chat: any XMPP server is connectable. • To-do: task management. • News: all versions of RSS and Atom are supported.
    • Roadmap • Engroup 1.5: Document Management, Project Management and Timesheet modules are added and integrated with existing modules are CRM, HRM. Simple Reporting System is developed that can display charts. • Engroup 1.6: Advanced Reporting System, Calendar module. Automatic back-up system. • Engroup 2.0: enable System Administrator to configure various options of clustering as well as caching level in enterprise environment.
    • Roadmap (cont.) • Many modules such as Bug tracking, finance etc could be added later.
    • Technical Requirements • Performance and Scalability: services must be able to serve an unlimited number of users 24/7. Engroup must be designed to be able to run in clustering environment effectively. • Extensibility: components are designed with loose coupling and high cohesion. Cost of upgrading and extending must be minimal.
    • Technical Requirements (cont.) • Modularity: Each module code base is independent of the others. One module can be changed without impacting any other one. • Security: User access is restricted based on method level of service class. • Testability: The system is designed to make it easy for writing unit test, integration test.
    • High Level Architecture • Communication method between Client and Server are AMF, HTTP protocols. • Engroup server modules could be integrated with other clients via REST.
    • Engroup Client Platform • Platform is developed based on eSoftHead framework including an extension of Adobe Cairngorm framework. • Module architecture follows MVC pattern.
    • Engroup Client Platform (cont.) • Platform manages Module life cycle. • Platform routes messages sent from one module to appropriate client channel that then dispatches events to listening modules. It helps the module loose coupling with each others. •
    • Engroup Client Platform (cont.) • Platform and common API are independent of AIR library. • Factory pattern is used to separate logic code between platform and specific AIR API → Engroup client can run on both desktop and web environment.
    • Engroup Server Platform • Platform is developed based on Spring framework and Osgi platform (Equinox) as well. • Platform packages many third-party Java libraries as Osgi bundles: – Apache libraries. – Chat. – Logging. – XML processing etc.
    • Engroup Server Platform (cont.) • Forum, Wiki, Mail products are incorporated into Engroup server by: – Changing the legacy code base (Limit usage). – Data integration (for example: LDAP). – API - using Enterprise Integration Framework Spring Integration to implement publish-subscribe pattern to dispatch messages to appropriate channels.
    • Engroup Server Platform (cont.) • Each Engroup module follows OO principles: – Each layer has single and clear responsibility. – Extensibility. – No cycle dependency. – Separating interface and implementation into different packages.
    • Development Status • There are more than 20 Flex projects and nearly 30 Java projects in Engroup workspace. • eSoftHead automates Engroup build process using Hudson – a Java CI server.
    • Development Status (cont.) • Main features are tested by using unit test or integration test approach. • eSoftHead developed its test framework library for Osgi platform, LDAP, Mail, Database.
