LLCOM – Livelink COM API
Invoke Livelink directly from within your own Microsoft-based applications.
Formark’s LLcomAPI exposes the contents of the Livelink repository as a hierarchy of COM objects that can be invoked from any COM-compliant environment, including Active Server Pages (ASP or ASP.NET), Visual Basic, Visual C++, J++ or Delphi. Each LLcomAPI COM object exposes two interfaces: an IDispatch interface for run-time scripting environments, and a vtbl interface to support compile-time references.
Formark LLCOM Architecture
Developers can use LLcomAPI to build ASP-based (or WebClass-based) server-side web applications that offer users a customized view of a Livelink repository. Alternatively, the LLcomAPI interface could be used to build a client-side Visual Basic application that exposes Livelink object data.
LLcomAPI also contains an embedded type library that exposes all supported object properties and methods for the Livelink API (LAPI) which enables Livelink functions to be invoked directly from within a Visual Basic program. By hiding many of the arcane details of the Livelink API, LLcomAPI significantly improves developer productivity by allowing them to focus on the application logic.LLcomAPI is utilized extensively in all Formark's Livelink solutions.
LLcomAPI exposes the following Livelink components:
LLcomAPI was developed using Microsoft C++ in conjunction with the Active Template Library (ATL).
