  • 1. Birds of a Feather: Working with the Lotus Connections API Sacha Chua ( [email_address] ) LivingAnAwesomeLife.com Opinions here are my own and not my employer’s. No warranty, express or implied.
  • 2. Goal: Get you excited about what you can do with the Lotus Connections API!
    • You can do incredible things with the Lotus Connections API
      • I made a Community Toolkit that had a newsletter, metrics exporter, and data exporter. People found it really useful.
    • Good news! LC 3.0 documentation has more examples than the LC 2.5 InfoCenter (and it’s a wiki!). The examples will come in really handy when you build.
    • We’ll go on a quick tour of some things we’ve built informally, and then open it up to a discussion :
      • What are you working on?
      • What would you like to build?
      • What questions do you have?
      • What can help you build better?
      • What have you learned?
      • What can you share?
  • 3. You can do pretty cool things with the Lotus Connections API!

  • 10. Lessons learned working with Lotus Connections 2.5
    • You can do a whole lot with the Lotus Connections API!
    • The service document doesn’t list everything. If you need to work with anonymous APIs, you will need to customize some of the URLs.
    • Trust, but verify. Systems and documentation sometimes disagree.
    • Not everything is available through the API. For example, I haven’t figured out the API way to get the structure of a wiki. Maybe in 3.0?
    • Community news feeds don’t work for private communities.
    • New wiki entries require valid XHTML, with an enclosing element. If everything else gets created except for the wiki body, that’s why.
