A collaborative editing systems allows co-authors at different locations to edit a shared view of a single document simultaneously. A compound document binds various types of information to create a single seamless presentation. A collaborative compound document editing system is developed to combine both the systems described above. It supports distributed editing with replicated compound documents, and integrates notification mechanisms into concurrence control modules. The real-time conversational facilities and the mechanisms for tolerating the process faults are provided. The collaborative compound document editing system is endured with the coordinating and data exchanging capabilities. This paper also discusses design issues such as multi-user interfaces and the presentation of compound documents, and proposes our approaches.
