Abstract : Synchronisation of replicated shared data is a key issue in collaborative writing systems. Most existing synchronization tools are specific to a particular type of shared data, i.e. text files, calendars, XML files. Therefore, users must use different tools to maintain their different copies up-to-date. In this paper we propose a generic synchronization framework based on the operational transformation approach that supports synchronisation of text files, calendars, XML files by using the same tool. We present how our framework is used to support cooperative writing of XML documents. An implementation is illustrated through the revision control system called So6, which is part of a distributed collaborative technology called LibreSource.
