By using XML to access the IBM Lotus Quickr Java API, you can perform a number of actions, such as searching all places in the service, getting a list of all places on a particular server, creating a new place, or adding a new person or group to a place.
First, set up the server for Java API access. Next, create well-formed XML that specifies the objects and the actions you want performed on them. Finally, access the Java API by running your XML against the Lotus Quickr processor on the server. The QPAPI process() method processes the XML, performs the actions, and outputs XML detailing the results. Detailed articles on all of these topics appear elsewhere in the Lotus Quickr wiki.
