Did you see that old advertisement video from IBM?
OK, Universal Adapter does not exist. But it was a funny video :)
Anyway, it wasn't my topic.
We have several content repositories within different IBM products. Connections (and LotusLive of course) has Files, Quickr (for Portal or for Domino) has Document Libraries, Domino has Teamroom, FileNet has Files again... The list goes like this.
So far, we have different connectors for most of these repositories. I think it's the time to design a universal content connector for every repositories we have. It's not a big problem for the server-side platforms because most of these systems has document APIs based on REST.
I have a small wish list for this connector:
- It should be implemented with Eclipse. It would be heavy, but it will be platform-independent and can be easily integrated to existing applications (Sametime, Notes and Symphony). - A seperate Mobile version is a must. - User should be able to create multiple proffiles for multiple repositories. - Should support offline capability. User would make some libraries available offline to sync them later. - Administrative deployment for large systems.
A Quick Question for Administrators...
Tue, Jun 10th 2014 6:14a Serdar Basegmez Just a quick question. Especially large domains have lots of users with the same full name. In modern directory systems, we can decrease the possibility of conflict by using hierarchical naming, however that will become an issue eventually, when you need to specify an e-mail address. I have seen that adding a number to the first or last name (John Smith , John 1 Smith, etc.) is highly popular. How do you handle people with the same name in your environment (e.g. Domino, AD, Connections, et [read] Keywords: connections
RIP Tim Tripcony...
Mon, May 12th 2014 1:55p Serdar Basegmez As many friends around, we are shocked and deeply saddened by unexpected loss of our own Tim Tripcony. Tim Tripcony was one of the most talented developers I have met... He inspired all of us by challenging all kinds of limits in our platform and finding really elegant patterns in various problems. He was always polite, helpful and positive with people. RIP, my friend. You'll be missed a lot. [read] Keywords:
E-mail will be dead... For some people...
Sat, Feb 22nd 2014 5:14a Serdar Basegmez Just an off-topic post, but can't help blogging about that. We are having bad times in our country. Summaries in English can be found here, here and here. Last two incidents are strongly related to very social context of our information and technology domain... Welcome to the remake of Orwell's 1984... The first is the change in the "Internet Bill", legal changes around monitoring and censorship. According to the bill, a government official, head of Turkey's telecommunication autho [read] Keywords: ibm

Change is good...
Mon, Nov 18th 2013 5:22a Serdar Basegmez Yes! Change is good... For a couple of weeks, I've been working on Bootstrap and as I learn it, my blog became a great playground for me! It's still using Domino Blog template at the back-end but skin is completely renewed. I have not optimized for performance yet but I can tell you, our blog template is so powerful that I have not changed anything in the application design! Please share your thoughts and tell me if you see any problems! BTW, I can share my templates in case you [read] Keywords: domino
