The network layer is a base network management layer in Lotus® Expeditor that provides a framework to applications and platform components for network invocations and network error handling.
It provides users with the capability to determine the status of the client platform as well as their connectivity to remote servers and HTTP resources including Web services. The application can choose to be notified of client status changes or to check the client platform status by using the public APIs for offline manager. The application can handle the network error by using the public APIs for Net Faults. The application can also check the real network status by using the public APIs for network status. This layer also includes the Rich Client Platform (RCP) version of HTTP URL Handler which integrates with account API and offline manager.
