XWiki: Annotating documents, the eXtensible wiki way
Since version 2.3, XWiki integrates document annotations in its collaborative environment (http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Annotations+Application). This talk will focus on the implementation of the annotation feature, with the challenges that an eXtensible wiki implies: handling user collaboration on documents and annotations, annotating dynamically generated content, flexible annotations structure to allow customization. As a default XWiki feature, it allows users to add notes on all types of content, plain unstructured documents or structured documents. It is also used in the Scribo project (http://www.scribo.ws) to manipulate automatic semantic annotations on wiki documents and collaboration around them. Since a demo is worth a thousand words, the presentation will center upon showing all these at work.
XWiki is a Java open source software development platform based on the wiki principles. In addition to being a full-featured wiki, it is also a second generation wiki allowing collaborative web applications to be written easily and quickly. On top of this platform several products are developed, targeted mainly on aiding enterprise-level needs.
