Macromedia Breeze Accelerates Developer Kits
Macromedia launches developer kits to bolster the use of its Breeze Web conferencing system through tighter integration in the enterprise.Hoping to boost the use of Web conferencing within enterprises, Macromedia Inc. on Monday released a set of development kits for tying its Breeze Web conferencing platform into other IT systems. The San Francisco-based company introduced two "solution accelerators" that provide developers with sample code and documentation for integrating Breeze functionality with enterprise directories and company Web sites. The Directory Services Accelerator can synchronize Breeze with employee directories, such as Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) directories, while the Breeze Scheduling Accelerator lets developers expose Breeze scheduling and content data on intranets and Web portals.
Both kits make use of the Web services APIs that Macromedia released as part of its March upgrade of Breeze to Version 4.0, said Kevin M. Lynch, Macromedias vice president of online learning and collaboration.
