After some discussions with the people at jfusion team we have come to a conclusion and project definition regarding eFront/Joomla integration.
We believe it is for the best interest of our community to allow this module to be built and supported from the JFusion team. eFront's Joomla plugin will be added to the jfusion SVN and will be available to all users free of charge. Future versions of JFusion will include support for eFront as well. This also means support for future Joomla editions.
Finally, this project will also help gain some visibility for eFront as a Joomla compatible LMS.
Since this does not come for free I want to bring again the donation discussion. This project's total cost is $1000. Anyone that wants to donate for this project please do so by using the following link:Paypal donation for eFront/Joomla integration
I copy from this project specs:
The project consists of the development of a Jfusion plugins for jFusion 1.2+ with the following specifications:
1. master functionality
2. slave functionality
3. user import into Joomla from eFront
4. user export from Joomla to eFront
5. resolving user conflicts automatically
6. dual login from Joomla
7. wrapper integration in Joomla
8. wizard setup support
9. (Avatar) support for jFusion Joomla Login module
10. user group synchronization between eFront, Joomla and other jFusion integrations
11. auto update email changes in eFront to Joomla and other jFusion integrations
12. auto update password changes in eFront to Joomla and other jFusion integrations
The plugin will not support frameless integration.
We will also provide a jFusion version 2.x plugin with above specifications at the same development level as jFusion 2.x. Depending on the API provided by jFusion 2.x frameless integration support will be part of that plugin. At this jFusion 2.x development is at pre-alpha stage, so there cannot be any guarantee on the proper working as long as a stable jFusion release is not available and included features are not defined. However, this project will be added to the jFusion (open source) SVN and we aim to update this pre-alpha plugin version to the same level as the actual jFusion 2.x release with any new jFusion 2.x release.
Project planning: final demonstration before the end of November 2009
