Image:Beta Version of Lotus Connections arrived...
Today, we received the first official (but private) code drop of a beta version for Lotus Connections - the brand new Web 2.0 Plattform. I'm still downloading the pre-requisite software, but as this is a far more complete package than the first Activities-Only Beta Code, it seems a lot more hardware-demanding than before:
  • WebSphere Application Server 6.1
  • DB2 9.1 (not sure whether Enterprise Edition, Express or what is suitable)
  • Linux and Windows support is included to this beta drop
  • LDAP Server required
  • Plugins for Sametime 7.5 and Notes 8 are included (Notes 8 only Activities plugin) in this beta drop
  • Portlets for Portal 6.0 are included in this beta drop
  • Two machines recommended (2.6 Ghz and up, 4 GB RAM each)  due to workload of the machines to seperate application server and database
  • Dual-Core Systems recommended
  • Windows 2003 Server (Standard & Enterprise) or Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 4)
  • The following services are contained in this beta drop:
    • Activities Service
    • Blogs Service
    • Communities Service
    • Dogear Service (Social Bookmarking)
    • Profiles Service

    Now, I have to check for some more hardware - seems that my weekend just got busy ! Keep you posted...
