XPages and SharePoint working together? You Bet ... here is a video

February 17 2011

One of the best demos I saw at Lotusphere 2011 was an application that Stephan Wissel wrote. In preparation for my IdoSphere: Super Feats of Integration of XPages with Symphony, SharePoint, and Office session, I reached out to Stephan and asked if I could add his app to my demo warchest. To highlight the demo, here is a video:

So what you can see is an XPages application consuming the SharePoint Lists web service that is standard in an SPS installation. Stephan than shows how you can display the data from the SharePoint list in the XPages application.

This is not a rip and replace demo. This is the integration of these two technologies to build a killer application. Look for more in this space as the year progresses. Awsome work Stephan, thanks for letting me include your demo!

    I am so looking forward to IBM "getting social" and "getting web 2.0" and allowing people to see and hear stuff without having to travel to the colonies

    Not sure I understand your comment Sean

    My comment was meant to express my frustration that IBM wastes the opportunity to share rhese inspirational demonstrations outside of the relatively few people that physically attend LS in the US.

    That does not seem to be compatable with the whole "get social" mantra or what other more modern app dev platform companies are doing in terms of enabling thier customers and business partners.

    The flippant reference to the colonies was a did at how old fashioned this approach seems to be.

    I think that is unfair Sean. I am sure you will see these demos at LUGs across the world this year. I also know that you are seeing it on YouTube, where you never would have before. And Stephan and I are talking about how to make something like this an OPenNTF.org project that everyone can use. The problem is how to let people interact with this when you need a SharePoint server - and you can't just make that public. So I think IBM wants to get this info out. They just have to go thru proper approvals or shortcut thru a partner like myself.

    Sorry John, I just hoped that IBM would do as others do and make key developer conferences avaialble to all. It seems like a reasonable expectation.
