Domino Access Services will not be included in Lotus Notes Domino 8.5.2

According to IBM the Domino Access Services (formerly named ISV APIs) will not be included in the 8.5.2 release because it is not complete against all of the market goals. Next steps for Domino Access Services for the post 8.5.2 time frame are currently under consideration.

So what does this mean? Well, it means that FlexDomino.net and Qkom.de with its product SoapGateQ is again alone in its efforts to provide some kind of access API to Domino. Of course our strategy is somewhat different in that SoapGateQ provides a web service based API rather then the RESTful services API IBM has been working on. As IBM dropped its API from the 8.5.2 release it is pretty futile to discuss the pro's and con's vs. SoapGateQ at this time.

Our goal is to have SoapGateQ (currently Beta 3) available by the time 8.5.2 goes gold and it will support all Domino 8 releases.
