Before starting this section, ensure you have completed the previous two
1. Configure SSO between
Lotus Quickr and Sametime.
2. Configure Sametime to
be case insensitive. In this topic we will discuss how to integrate awareness
and chat capabilities for your Services for Lotus Domino users.
How instant messaging works in Lotus Quickr
Instant messaging is always a two-step process when using
1. Log user into Sametime
from the Lotus Quickr client.
2. Resolve the user list
to show awareness status.
On Services for Lotus Domino, we have an additional step to starting the
awareness process. When Lotus Quickr starts, it attempts to connect to
the Sametime server to make sure it is running. If it is able to
connect, when a user logs in, Lotus Quickr will write the page with the
stlinksapplet, to start the awareness process.
Log user into Lotus Sametime from Lotus Quickr client
Lotus Quickr passes the distinguished name of the user
signed into Lotus Quickr, and an LTPAToken generated by the Lotus Quickr
server to the Sametime server to authenticate and log in the user.
Resolve user list to show awareness status
After you have logged into Sametime, Lotus Quickr sends
any names in the various views of Lotus Quickr to Sametime requesting the
users' status. For example, in The Members view Lotus Quickr takes the
distinguished name of all users in the place and sends this list to Sametime.
Then Sametime checks the current status for each user (Active, Away, Do
not disturb, Not online) passes this information back to the page, and
the names display the users' current status.
Specify the Lotus Sametime server in Lotus Quickr
Follow these steps to specify the Lotus Sametime server
in Lotus Quickr.
1. In a browser, type the
URL of the QuickPlace server administration console (http://ghquickr5.lotus.com/quickplace
2. Click Sign In
and sign in as a Lotus Quickr server administrator.
3. Click Site Administration.
4. Click Other Options.
5. Scroll down and click
6. For Sametime Servers,
there are two fields:
Sametime Community Server, used for awareness and chat within Lotus Quickr
Sametime Meeting Server, used for creating Online Meetings within Lotus
We will update the Sametime Community Server for now for awareness in Lotus
7. Click Next to
save the settings.
Awareness should now work on the Lotus Quickr server, when you sign in
to Lotus Quickr with an LDAP user.
Test awareness in Services for Lotus Domino
Before you begin testing, verify the following:
1. The Lotus Quickr server
is not immediately integrated with Sametime for awareness and chat. Wait
a few minutes for the setting to take affect, or restart the QuickPlace
server to integrate it.
2. If you want awareness
to work with the Firefox browser, copy the stlinks folder from Sametime
(C:\Lotus\Domino\data\domino\html\sametime) to the same location on Lotus
Follow these steps to test awareness in Services for Lotus
1. Open a browser to any
place, and sign in as an LDAP user.
2. Your name should show
active status at the top right corner of the screen.
In addition to awareness, Lotus Quickr also has a member online applet
that shows the current status for all users added to the place. The
applet is accessed by clicking on the Chat link in the table of contents
of any Lotus Quickr place. Complete the next section if you want
to enable the member online applet.
Copying Java files required for the member online applet
Please ensure you have installed cf1 on the Sametime Server.
Without cf1, the member online applet will not work. CF1 can
be downloaded from the following url: http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=203&uid=swg24016368
Follow these steps to copy the Java files required for
chat and online awareness.
1. Install the Sametime
- Download the latest Lotus Sametime 7.5.1 toolkit from the following URL:
- Extract the downloaded file into a directory which is accessible
to the Sametime server.
2. In the Domino data directory
of the Sametime server, create the subdirectory <domino
3. Copy the STComm.jar,
CommRes.jar, and PeopleOnline31.jar files to the QuickPlace\peopleonline
subdirectory that you created in the previous step. These files can be
found in the following locations:
- Files from 7.5.1 toolkit:
STComm.jar and CommRes.jar:
- Files from the QuickPlace server:
PeopleOnline31.jar: <Domino data
At this point the Chat link should open the member online applet, and show
awareness status for all users added to the place. If the member
online applet fails to load, please get updated versions of STComm.jar
and CommRes.jar. To obtain these files, call into Lotus Support and
request the hotfix for SPR #JYYG6ZZD4V.
