How to build an API for a Domino app?

Hi,

I would like to "open" some Domino applications for other platforms so my first though would be to deliver some API's that apps on other platforms can access to get the dat in json format.

I would like to avoid using the Domino Access Service since I want to be specific what data I want to provide and what not (e.g. on field level).

However I have no knowledge on "standards" in API development or the way to do this on Domino?

I would like to avoid the use of REST controls as available in the Extension Library. So I am looking more like I servlet I could setup and have everything code based.

Is there someone who can help me to get "on the road" with building a basic servlet and explains the do's and don't with API development?

Thank you in advance!

hmmm

The REST controls in the ext. library are a good starting place but of course you're correct in that the servlet is the final destination.

 

I believe Eric McCormick has blogged about servlets so you might want to check there...  Google as I forget his website.  I'll be doing a small show on this for NotesIn9 soon on REST but that probably won't go to the servlet level.

 

Good Luck!!
