DeveloperWorks Series: Working with plug-ins in IBM Lotus Sametime 7.5.1

Part three in an article series, "Working with plug-ins in IBM Lotus Sametime V7.5.1: Testing and debugging plug-ins" is now available on DeveloperWorks.  The series is an excellent resource for anyone who is interested in learning more about building plugins for the Sametime environment, or getting an early start on how you could build plugins for Lotus Notes 8.

This four-part article series provides an introduction to Lotus Sametime V7.5.1 plug-in development using the Eclipse platform.
  • Part 1, "Configuring the Eclipse environment," guides you through the configuration of Eclipse for the Lotus Sametime V7.5.1 plug-in development.
  • In Part 2, "Developing the BuddyNote plug-in," you use Eclipse to extend the Lotus Sametime user interface and to create the BuddyNote plug-in.
  • Part 3, this installment, demonstrates how to debug your plug-in using the tools provided by Eclipse.
  • Part 4, the final part in this series, shows you how to deploy a custom plug-in, allowing you to share your creations, by setting up a Feature and Update Site project.

Apparently I clicked the wrong link (this is what happens when I fall behind in blogging)... Part 4 is now available, too:  Working with plug-ins in IBM Lotus Sametime V7.5.1: Deploying plug-ins.  Read the whole series today!
