  • The Lotus Connections API is a RESTful Web Service. Representational state transfer ( REST ) is a style of application architecture. It is meant to be used in a client to server environment that supports hypermedia. The technology behind the API is very open and easy to learn. The Connections UI demonstrates many of its features as the services uses it’s own API. This architecture does not require any specific client requirements. The calling client only needs to be able to transport over HTTP. This makes extending Connections possible in the simplest web application or available to complex service oriented architected platforms.
