The Lotus® Expeditor Toolkit can be used to develop Lotus Expeditor applications that include Lotus Sametime® 8.0 functionality or to develop applications that target a Lotus Sametime Connect client installation.
To develop Lotus Expeditor applications that include Lotus Sametime 8.0 functionality, use Lotus Expeditor Toolkit 6.2 and select Lotus Expeditor for Desktop Test Environment
when opening a new workspace. The embedded Sametime components must be installed into the XPD Client Desktop. For installation instructions, see Installing and configuring the embedded Lotus Sametime application: XPD621
. When the client is launched with the default target provided with XPD 6.2.1, the embedded Sametime components are automatically activated.
To develop applications that target a Lotus Sametime Connect client installation, use Lotus Expeditor Toolkit 6.1.2 and refer to the Lotus Sametime SDK for instructions on installing and configuring the toolkit for use with Lotus Sametime Connect 8.0. For more information and to acquire the Sametime SDK, refer to http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/lotus/downloads/toolkits.html
Perform the following procedure to create a launch configuration and launch the Lotus Expeditor with Embedded Sametime platform from within the IDE:
- Select Run > Run Configurations...
- Select Client Services.
- Click New.
- Enter a name.
- Select Clear workspace data before launching.
- Click Run.
The Default with Embedded Sametime target sets the VM arguments for the launch configuration. The tabs on the client services launcher function similar to the Eclipse PDE launcher, with a few additions. If you want to add or remove plug-ins from the launch configuration at a feature level, change to the Target
tab and select the features to add or remove.
