WCT / MM - Jeanette Barlow: IBM® Lotus® Symphony™ is a set of productivity tools for documents, presentations, and spreadsheets that are intuitive and easy to use and provided at no charge. Combining the robust Eclipse RCP programming model with Open Office based productivity tools that utilize the standard file formats (ODF), Lotus Symphony frees end users from being locked into a single vendor and proprietary file formats and frees developers to build plug-ins using open programming interfaces. Lotus Symphony can be extended with Eclipse plug-ins to integrate and enhance a wide range of applications without you having to worry about getting locked into a single vendor for file formats and licensing agreements. This poster will highlight the interfaces that you can use to extend your applications with Lotus Symphony functions. Save money, make a statement about open office tools or develop new features for profit. It's all good. IBM Lotus Symphony. Plug ins Wanted.
