Working with the Sametime Client Toolkits

This IBM Redbook is for developers and architects who want to utilize Sametime functionality in applications based on Java, C++, COM, or HTML and JavaScript. We explore capabilities offered by the different Sametime client toolkits, which you can use to add functionality to existing applications and to create powerful new applications that enable real-time collaboration. We discuss event-based programming, Sametime services, and the Sametime Place architecture. As part of our discussion about the Java toolkit, we provide an online bidding application sample that utilizes the Sametime Places architecture, and a sample to customize the chat window supplied by the toolkit. Next we describe the Sametime C++ Toolkit, and build a full-blown Sametime Connect client in C++. We also discuss considerations for developing Win32 programs in C++. Finally, we describe the newest additions to the Sametime client toolkits: the Sametime COM Toolkit and the Sametime Links Toolkit. We develop a BuddyList application in Visual Basic, and discuss how easily the Sametime Links Toolkit can add Sametime functionality to Web pages without requiring more than basic skills in HTML and JavaScript. Sametime portlets for WebSphere Portal Server are included in an appendix. Most of the samples in this redbook are available in source format from the IBM Redbooks Web site. This book is based on the Sametime 3.0 client toolkit.
