Interop: Connect as one unit.

By | October 1, 2008
One of the more nifty features to grace the Zimbra scene recently is the interoperability framework for sharing two-way free/busy information with other server platforms. Since we released the framework APIs and the reference implementation against Microsoft's Exchange 2003 (previously covered) there has been a lot of interest from customers and community (interop works with both Open Source and Network Edition). Argonne National Labs has given excellent feedback culminating in a few enhancements for ZCS 5.0.10. We also recently got a wonderful thank you note from the University of Pennsylvania, who teamed up with the folks over at Sumatra Development to handle some calendar migrations. They were impressed at how well their multi-domain environment behaved, and shared a link to a configuration tip for Exchange 2007.

All REST and no play…

By | November 9, 2005
One of the things we are working on for an upcoming release is REST interfaces into all our content. If you aren't familiar with REST I'd just suggest reading Building Web Services the REST Way. Today, within the Zimbra Collaboration Suite we have a number of different server-side URLs that our client accesses to download an attachment, export contacts as CSV, export a calendar as an ICS, file etc. We are also adding sharing (what would collaboration be without sharing, after all) of calendars, contacts, etc. Not only within a particular Zimbra community, but between Zimbra communities and the public at large. In order to facilitate this, we are coming up with a clean, consistent URL interface to all our resources. The best way to describe this is with some examples. (more…… Read more »
