CSCW applications provide virtual spaces for human-human cooperation. Within Modelling and-Simulation (M&S), CSCW support is highly beneficial but, as in most single-user applications, not natively provided. External support, such as infrastructures for creating or adapting applications for collaborative work, is generally missing in the CSCW community. At the Swedish Defence Research Agency we study the possibilities of defence CSCW, for the primary intention of collaborative M&S. Since most of our M&S, complies with the HLA (a distributed simulation architecture), HLA appeared as a candidate for building a CSCW infrastructure upon. Thus We have designed and developed a prototype of a CSCW infrastructure, based on a combination of HLA and XML. The goal is to provide a foundation for developing CSCW applications, and for adapting existing applications to collaborative work. This paper presents the design and development, and experiments conducted for verifying utilization of HLA and XML for the purpose.
