In a previous blog post I demonstrated how to use the XPages social enabler to access IBM Connections. At the beginning of this month IBM released the IBM Social Business Toolkit SDK as open source on OpenNTF. The SDK is a general implementation of the same concepts that can also be used by web and Java developers. We’d like to consume this general implementation in a future release of the XPages extension library (typical disclaimer/no commitment).
In the video I describe how you can use the social SDK in XPages applications. In the last part of the video I explain the advantages of the two approaches as they exist today.
