Abstract : Data management is a key issue in cooperative systems. Anyone who uses more than one computer or collaborates with other people is aware of the problems posed by having multiple copies of shared documents. Most existing synchronization tools are specific to a particular type of shared data i.e. text files, calendars, XML files. Therefore, user should use several tools to maintain their different copies up-to-date. This is not an easy task. To address this issue, we defined a generic synchronization framework based on the operational transformation approach. This framework allows to synchronise text files, calendars, XML files by using the same tool. The main objective of this paper is to present this framework and how it is used to support cooperative writing of XML document. An implementation is illustrated through the revision control system called So6, which is a part of a distributed collaborative technology called LibreSource.
