We're really excited by this, as it will enable Salesforce applications to communicate with all of our Google data APIs directly from the browser. Salesforce released an in-depth article on the topic: Building a Google Calendar Mash-up with Salesforce SOA . This tutorial guides the reader through the process of performing many of the common Calendar data API operations, including:
- Authenticating via AuthSub
- Listing the user's calendars
- Inserting events
- Deleting events
This isn't the first we've heard about integrating Salesforce.com applications with Google data APIs. Charlie Wood, of Spanning Partners , talked about his experiences working with the Calendar data API and plans for synchronizing Salesforce.com and Google Calendar during his presentation at Dreamforce last year. His company has already developed Spanning Salesforce to enable the retrieval of RSS feeds of Salesforce.com data.
We look forward to hearing about the mashups you create using this new capability on the Salesforce.com platform. I encourage you to share them with the community using the new pages we created on each of the Google data API developer forums. You can also use these pages to share your own articles and tutorials.
