To kick off the OpenNTF Featured Project of the Month we are going to start off with two projects that were recently selected for the 2010 Lotus Awards.

Task Management by Pavone

The Task Management application developed by IBM Lotus Business Partner Pavone is a simple tool to keep track of an individual's and their team members' tasks. The tasks are federated from various sources, e.g. from the users' mailboxes or from other OpenNTF applications, and displayed in either the Lotus Notes sidebar or in Lotus Sametime. From there the actual tasks can be opened in Lotus Notes or in the web browser.

Technically Task Management leverages new rich client application development features based on Eclipse in combination with the standard NSF capabilities and web services. Pavone started with the implementation of this application two years ago and contributed it recently as open source to OpenNTF.

Task Management was awarded the "Best Open Source Contribution by a Business Partner" Lotus Award.

File Navigator by Rene Winkelmeyer

File Navigator is a multi platform file navigator widget running inside the Lotus Notes sidebar. Lotus Notes users can detach files easily from Notes documents, and this includes full emails that are stored as EML on disk. Vice versa, files can be attached to Notes documents via drag and drop. Various user preferences allow the customization of the drives and directories that are displayed and these preferences are manageable via policies.

Technically File Navigator is an Eclipse plugin leveraging Lotus Notes extension points.

In the spirit of open source Rene Winkelmeyer took the starting point of his project from other OpenNTF contributors and extended it in many ways, e.g. network shares, user preferences, policies, different languages, etc. He's implemented many feature requests from the OpenNTF community and made File Navigator the most active OpenNTF project in 2009.

File Navigator was awarded the "Best Open Source Contribution by an Individual" Lotus Award
