CSID Experiment Framework

The csidex framework is a networking / persistence / experiment support framework that aims at making the task of writing a typical real-time interactive collective action experiment easier by providing flexible support for configuration, networking / event handling, and persistence into binary Java Serializable files (consisting of a round configuration and a time-ordered stream of PersistableEvents) and into XML via the XStream library.
