Lotus, IBM Launch E-Biz Developer Resources
- By Scott Bekker
Lotus Development Corp. and IBM Corp. unveiled two new resources for software developers focused on collaborative technologies. The Collaboration Zone on IBM developerWorks offers objective content on the latest technologies for developers building open, standards-based, and cross-platform collaborative solutions.
Additionally, Lotus (www.lotus.com) Developer Network (LDN), a new Lotus resource site, offers developers in-depth information for building collaborative e-business applications and a gateway to the Lotus developer community.
LDN is a community-based, self-service e-business site, which offers developers access to a central repository of information on Lotus Web application products, strategy, and development trends. It serves as a destination for both Lotus and non-Lotus developers to get the latest technical information and resources on collaborative e-business applications, solutions, and industry news.
LDN offers technical articles and news features, online learning, and sample code, as well as technical support.
In addition to LDN, the new Collaboration Zone of developerWorks (www.ibm.com/developerworks) provides sample code, technical articles, expert columns, and industry news on collaborative application development that uses open standards such as Java, XML, and Linux, as well as open workflow and messaging standards.
Both LDN's and developerWorks' community-based information can be accessed free of charge. - Isaac Slepner
