Zhiwu,

    Even though I submitted the idea, the mentor position is open to whomever wants to run with it.  I may not have the time to mentor anyone but I do have a J2EE background and teach J2EE at my local community college.

   Please post your questions, and I'll clarify as best I can on the original intent of the functionality.  The current intent of functionality can be re-scoped as needed.  I may have students interested in building similar functionality but have not proposed the idea to them yet.

Kind Regards,
Dennis

Re: Google SoC Mentor on WebBrowserOne-clickInstantContentSelectionOrURLPosting

Thanks a lot, Dennis. Following your instructions I post my discussions following on xwiki-dev to see if any one would be interested and act as my mentor for SoC.

I'm interested in the idea because recently I experimented with the Live Clipboard which seems to implement the same functionalities. The technologies and ideas behind it are quiet straightforward and easy to implement:

http://spaces.msn.com/editorial/rayozzie/demo/liveclip/liveclipsample/clipboardexample.html

Does this looks like the thing you want in XWiki?

There are, however, some differences compared to the idea originally presented here:

1. Not any content on any site can be selected and cut/pasted. The contents to be copied from must support Live Clipboard as well. This may sounds like a big turnoff, but think again, the "any" requirement is quiet demanding. If the copy-from webpage is not cooperative, we don't get much structure info from the copied contents therefore limits our ability to handle them and paste to XWiki.
 
2. No intelligence is required on the paste side to identify the copied contents. All required info is avilable through the Live Clipboard copy. If needed, some on the fly decision may be made concernng how the server shall handle the copied contents before the POST.

The implementation is basically AJAX. I can deal with that. But I do need help from someone who's familiar with XWiki structure and implementation to guide me through the POST implementation.

If someone from XWiki is interested in this idea and would like to be my mentor, please contact me so we can work out a plan.

Thanks,

Zhiwu
