Philipe Riand - Building Social Applications using the Social Business Toolkit SDKlatform - sdk


Published on

Adding social features to new or existing applications has never been easier with the advent of the Social Business Toolkit SDK. At this session we will discuss how social features can add real business value and you will see how easily they can be built using the SDK. The SDK heralds a transformation is how you develop applications on the IBM Social Platform so come along learn more.

  4. 4. Agenda ● ICS Social Application Development Strategy ● Introduction to the Social Business Toolkit SDK ● Conclusion 4
  5. 5. ICS social application development strategy Application Development Reach the broader set of developers Embrace Open Standards Nurture and entertain a community of developers Provide an easy access to the platform Enable the community Make it easy to consume the platform
  6. 6. Reaching a broader group of developers ● Use the technologies that current developers use ● Develop components using Web and Mobile technologies – HTML5/CSS3/JavaScript, Mobile native and hybrid ● Provide language independent data access using REST services – Wrap the APIs for different languages. ● Target different platforms ● IBM preferred platforms (WebSphere, IBM Domino...) and others (PHP, Ruby, .NET...) ● Minimize the technology dependencies ● Support many libraries and tooling – Dojo, JQuery, and other JavaScript libraries – Eclipse, IBM Rational Application Developer, IBM Domino Designer ● Run the same components into different containers ● Minimize the porting effort across the containers – Plain web applications, OpenSocial Gadgets, Portlets, iWidgets, Web Parts...
  7. 7. Embracing open standards ● Enabling the next generation of socially- enabled solutions to enhance customers' existing investments and heterogeneous platforms ● Focus on open standards and “loosely coupled” web-centric architectures ● A commitment to drive and leverage open standards ● Maximize choice, flexibility, and ease of integration ● Drive enterprise innovation and leverage rapid innovation on the public web ● Minimize incremental cost of targeting additional desktop and mobile platforms ● Leverage dominant skill-sets based around web technologies
  8. 8. Making it easier to consume the platform ● Get developers started in minutes ● Test the IBM APIs and Services directly from the cloud, without having to install anything ● Make the on premises install as simple as possible ● Provide reusable code libraries ● Encapsulate the services access into easy to use libraries ● Call any service with a few lines of code ● Provide a large set of code snippets ● Understand how the APIs can be used by looking at the self-documented snippets ● Copy, paste and run the code samples directly to your own application ● Provide an extended documentation ● Make the documentation live in a constantly updated wiki ● Provide developer API documentation generated from the source code (Java/JavaScript doc)
  9. 9. Provide easier access to the platform The IBM Quickstart Image for Social Business ● Includes the latest version of IBM Connections, Notes/Domino and Sametime, all configured together with a sample set of users. The SDK is also pre-installed! Pre-integrated software appliance IBM Social Business Toolkit APIs IBM Social Business Core Modules Workflow and forms IBM Domino Workflow and forms IBM Domino Social collaboration IBM Connections Social collaboration IBM Connections Unified communications IBM Sametime Unified communications IBM Sametime IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK IBM Social Business Toolkit Playground VMWare® IBM developerWorks Cloud
  10. 10. Nurture and enable a community of developers #ibmsbt /OpenNTF/SocialSDK Product documentation in wikis Developer Workshops Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn StackOverflow GitHUB YouTube Channel SlideShare
  11. 11. New developerWorks site for Social Business ● Landing page for Social Business application developers ● ● ● Content ● Gettting started information for different types of developers ● Blog and news ● Events ● Community links, esp. StackOverflow and GitHub ● Documentation navigator ● Part of bigger IBM developerWorks effort ● Plan to provide new topical sites like social, cloud, mobile, big data, and analytics ● Focus on the specific content rather than everything IBM related ● Focus on community, including non IBM-owned sites
  12. 12. Agenda ● ICS Social Application Development Strategy ● Introduction to the Social Business Toolkit SDK ● Conclusion 12
  13. 13. The IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK ● Let developers add social capabilities to their applications in minutes ● Through the consumption of ready to use code libraries – Not a new set of APIs, but helpers on top of the existing APIs ● Illustrated by many comprehensive examples that can simply be copy/paste to existing applications – And established developer patterns for social business ● Target the broader range of developers ● Focus on web technologies: HTML, JavaScript and CSS – But also support Java developers, and more over time ● Supports J2EE and OSGI based servers, and more to come ● Supports on-premises and cloud deployments ● Delivered as an open source project (Apache 2.0 license) and available on GitHub ● External contributions will be accepted ● Supported using a community on developerWorks and OpenNTF
  14. 14. SDK Keypoints ● Easy to consume, starting library for any application developer ● Saves application developers from writing cumbersome, static code ● Isolates various characteristics related to connectivity to social services – Makes it easy to switch between multiple environments (production, development, etc..) ● Isolates complexity related to authentication mechanisms – The application code is agnostic of the underlying authentication mechanism ● No more demo/poc code that should be revisited later ● Complex authentication flows are handled seamlessly by the SDK – Currently supports OAuth 1.0a, OAuth 2.0, and Basic authentication ● SSO (LTPA, SAML) are experimentally supported for now ● Provides easy to use objects with many code examples ● Low level APIs for directly consuming REST services ● Higher level objects with advanced capabilities (caching, etc.) ● Hide some platform specific requirements (ie: OpenSocial XHR API, Portlet APIs, etc...)
  15. 15. The IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK – Now! Sample Applications OpenSocial Support Security Code Snippets Language Bindings Developer Playground Documentation Server Assets J2EE/Domino Pre-configured Tomcat
  16. 16. Social Business Playground – Today and Next ● Live on Greenhouse ● Delivered with the source code as part of the SDK ● Code snippets ● JavaScript, Java, XPages... ● API Explorer ● API Documentation ●
  17. 17. Social Business Toolkit SDK – Samples ● The SDK comes with several sample applications ● JavaScript code snippets ● Java code snippets ● Full-fledged ACME Airlines demo application – Shows the use of social capabilities within an existing application
  18. 18. JavaScript developers experience ● The SDK is included with a single line of code ● A script tag pointing to the toolkit ● Uses the AMD notation for maximum performance and modularity ● The JavaScript contains many easy to use functions ● Uses existing libraries (Dojo, JQuery) under the cover, but exposes a library agnostic API ● Comprehensible, customizable Dijits
  19. 19. Java developers experience ● Add the jar files/OSGI plug-ins to your development ● Works on J2EE and Domino servers ● And uses any of the APIs ● Supports web and stand-alone Java client applications ● The Java and JavaScript APIs are consistent

  21. 21. Agenda ● ICS Social Application Development Strategy ● Introduction to the Social Business Toolkit SDK ● Conclusion 21
  22. 22. Adding social features to your application ● Find and customize samples ● Start with the samples in the Playground ● Edit the samples and test your changes ● Eventually, deploy the pre-configured TOMCAT instance ● Unzip the provided zip file on a Windows/Linux machine ● Include SDK libraries in your application ● Add jars to web application or deploy SDK feature to Domino ● Include the SDK JavaScript libraries in your application pages ● Configure endpoints
  23. 23. The SDK is a Collaborative, Open, Social Project ● We want your feedback ● Let us know what is good, what is not and what you'd like to see ● Help us building the roadmap – Tell us about your priorities ● We want your active participation ● Participate to the community ● Report bugs, and eventually solutions – Grow your reputation on Stackoverflow ● Contribute code to the SDK and code snippets – Support languages & environments we do not (PHP, .NET...)
