How To Create an iPhone Application for Lotus Connections

View Comments

As a gift for Columbus Day, on Friday IBM made available an article named: Developing a social networking iPhone application based on IBM Lotus Connections 2.5.

You may remember that last month I told you about IBM's first native iPhone app for Lotus Connections. The developers of that application, Nick Poore and Amy Dewar, documented their work.

The article starts with an introduction of the Lotus Connections APIs which are based on Atom. This means that all you need to know is how to send XML over HTTP; very simple.

Next, the article shows you how to use the iPhone SDK to create the first part of the app: a view into the most recent blog entries.

The article includes all the sample code you need to get a functional app, and it even includes a sample iPhone app you can download and start your development from there.

I can't wait to see what kind of applications developers are now going to create. If you do one, let me know.
