Two weeks ago we got called by IBM Germany, asking if someone from the MindPlan developers could demonstrate the MindPlan Composite Application at Lotusphere 2009.
They were really surprised to hear, that, because our original session submission (see this posting) had not been considered by the Lotusphere track managers, we MindPlan developers had not planned to attend Lotusphere 2009 (only the sales crew and our US Partner Thresher Enterprise Systems).
We had a few phone conferences since then, explained our ideas for the session more in detail and gave them a short MindPlan demo.
They told us that our topic would be an ideal complement to an already scheduled session of Michael Zink, IBM Austria:
Michael's session is an overview about the different possibilities of integrating 3rd party components into Lotus Notes (like the AWT/SWT bridge, embedding ActiveX, browser containers in Notes 8.5 etc.) and their inter-component communication using Composite Application technology.
So here is the news:
I will spend the second half of the session and explain in detail what is necessary to integrate a Java/Swing application like MindPlan into Lotus Notes R8.
As Java developers, we will not only have some nice looking slides, but we will show
"the real thing" ;-)
Which means that there will be some code snippets in the slides and in addition, we will provide much more samples and references to Eclipse/Expeditor documentation as a web delivery after the presentation to make sure that not everyone has to reinvent the wheel over and over again in his own integration projects.
So make sure you don't miss session AD303!
I'm really looking forward to be a part of Lotusphere 2009!
