Download Description

IBM® Lotus® Expeditor 6.1.2 Client for Desktop and Client for Devices is a software program that provides a runtime environment and integrated middleware components for extending many enterprise applications to server-managed laptop computers and desktop systems. It provides a client-side, services-oriented framework that can enable applications to run locally while the system is disconnected from the network, and can synchronize data, transactions, and applications after the system is reconnected. It also provides client management services that can be used by network and system administrators to deploy, maintain, update, and even remove software from end-user machines, with minimal end-user intervention.

System Administrators use the Lotus Expeditor Server to install and configure the server middleware, so client applications can securely perform assured transactions and database synchronization with Enterprise applications and data.

The Lotus Expeditor Toolkit provides a complete, integrated set of tools that allows you to develop, debug, test, package and deploy client applications to the Lotus Expeditor platform.
