March 2003 (vol. 36 no. 3)
pp. 56-62

The Internet's ubiquity has fostered many computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW) environments recently. These include instant messaging services, peer-to-peer file-sharing systems, multiuser games, and shared work-space systems.

Key factors in facilitating the advent of these environments include the use of open systems that permit system interoperability; advances in database, computer graphics, and display technology; and widespread acceptance of networking technologies and protocols. To address the deficiencies of existing tool-kits, the authors created the ANTS CSCW component framework, which proposes new solutions at the conceptual, architectural, and technological levels.
