I’m happy to say that my newest article is online at THE VIEW website. The article is on managing and provisioning lotus.domino.Session objects to plug-ins in Sametime Connect 7.5.1 – a subject that’s a little tricky due to the native code underneath the Notes/Domino Java API and due to the way that classloaders work in Sametime Connect/Expeditor.
For the ones who’s already on Sametime 7.5.1 please see the errata (https://lekkimworld.com/theview_sametime).
Take the mystery out of providing multiple Notes sessions from Sametime Connect. Plug-in developers find that running multiple Sametime plug-ins that access Notes at the same time is tricky; the reasons are due to how the Sametime 7.5 Java application-programming interface (API) differs from the one Notes uses, and how Java class-loaders load native library code on Windows. The solution provided in this article uses a bundled group of plug-ins, invisible to connect users, for managing lotus.domino.Session objects across other plug-ins. You also learn how to achieve fast plug-in deployments with automatic Connect configuration, plus easier plug-in maintenance. The solution code is available for download at THE VIEW Web site.
