The network layer is a base network management layer in the Lotus
® Expeditor Client for Desktop 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 current 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 a client status change or to check the client platform status by using the public APIs for the offline manager. The application can also check the real network status by using the public APIs for netstatus. This layer also includes the RCP version of the HTTP URL Handler which integrates with the account API and offline manager.
Understanding network aware applicationsParent topic: Developing applications
The network framework provides a base framework to handle network errors and provides a network monitoring service.
Developing network aware application logic
Any application component interested in the remote/local resource status and client status should implement the INetworkAware
interface or extend the NetworkAwareBase
object. It also should call the DetectAndHandle.detectAndHandle(e,contextKey)
when an network error occurs.
