External Requirements of Groupware Development Tools

Part of the IFIP —The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT, volume 22)


The EHCI’98 Workshop on Requirements of Groupware Development Tools examined six groupware applications in order to derive requirements for tools for developing groupware. We hope that these requirements will be useful to designers of new tools in motivating what features their tools should have.
