I'm curious to see how this Lotus Expeditor works out...
From ZDNet: IBM targets Microsoft developers with new tools
The company on Wednesday announced Lotus Expeditor, software tools designed to let developers create Web 2.0-based applications from reusable components. IBM is also teaming up with partner Mainsoft to help developers migrate their Microsoft Visual Basic.Net applications to Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) open-standards applications.
Sounds like there's a couple different things going on here. For one, Expeditor looks to be some type of application development platform that wires together existing components. Could be interesting... I'm not quite sure if the Expeditor software is part of the Mainsoft effort to migrate VB.Net apps to J2EE. Knowing the way we raked Red Bull over the coals, I certainly hope whatever IBM/Lotus comes up with in that department works a whole lot better than Microsoft's tool did. On the other hand, we're not claiming to convert .Net and/or SharePoint apps to Notes/Domino, either... :)
I'm sure this will be talked about more and more leading up to Lotusphere.
