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 mini-guide to understand what’s going on: Turkish Summer...
Wed, Jul 3rd 2013 3:15a Serdar Basegmez It's been more than a month. We had the most chaotic days in Turkey... A lot of friends from all over the world ask me what's really going on here. I just wanted to summarize headlines... All started as a tiny protest in Taksim Square, almost the center of Istanbul. There is a small park here named "Gezi Park" (Gezi means trip/travel in Turkish). Istanbul municipality wanted to destroy this park and construct a shopping mall but while the legal dispute continues, construction [read] Keywords: network
Two critical HTTP problems in Domino 9...
Fri, Mar 29th 2013 6:48a Serdar Basegmez After I upgraded my servers to Domino 9, I have found two problems affecting HTTP task. 1. Redirect TCP to SSL problem...

After a couple of tests, I found that if you have "Redirect TCP to SSL" checked in your Internet Site document, it fails with infinite redirection problem. I posted the issue into the N/D 9.0 Social Edition forum and [read] Keywords: administration
