Abstract. Today there exist many frameworks for the development of
synchronous groupware applications. Although the domain of these appli-
cations is very heterogeneous, existing frameworks provide only limited
flexibility to integrate diverse groupware applications in a meaningful
way. We identify five variation points that a groupware framework needs
to offer in a flexible way in order to facilitate the integration of diverse
groupware applications. Based on these variation points, we propose a
groupware framework called Agilo that tries to overcome the limited flex-
ibility of existing frameworks by offering multiple realizations of these
variation points and providing a modular architecture to simplify the
integration of applications and the extensibility and adaptability to dif-
ferent application and integration requirements.
1 Introduction
Today there exist many frameworks to support and to simplify the development
of applications for synchronous groupware [1]. While the application domain of
