Google shows Wave talking to Novell's Pulse

Google has given a public demo of how its Wave collaboration platform can integrate with Novell's rival Pulse system

Google has given the first public demonstration of how its Wave collaboration platform can integrate with Novell's rival Pulse system at Linux.conf.au 2010 in New Zealand, while also offering some insights into the future development of the Wave protocol.

Google Wave product manager Dan Peterson showed a prepared demo of Pulse communicating with an existing Wave server during a 'miniconf' session on working with Wave.

"They've managed to take the code and integrate it with their existing product and now the two systems are talking," Peterson said, adding that there are still a number of problems with the implementation: "We're all working through the bugs together."
