It's so easy to access IBM Connections from XPages

I’ve implemented another feature for XSnippets to share snippets on the IBM Connections instance deployed on Greenhouse.

I’ve used the XPages Social Enabler which comes with great functionality to handle the authentication including SSO and functionality to invoke REST services easily and parse XML. I also used the documentation of the Connections REST services. If I have time I document later more how I’ve done it. For now you can read the source code on OpenNTF. I want to thank my colleague Yun Zhi Lin whose code I used as starting point.

On the XSnippet page there is a new icon now to share on Connections.


When clicked a new page is opened from where users can update their Connections status and publish bookmarks into communities.


Here is an mini video showing the new functionality in action.
