I have had the privilege of getting an exclusive look at the new developer community and toolkits that Salesforce will be launching at the eTech conference tomorrow. Salesforce have been on the cutting edge of what we now call Web 2.0 in the business space for years. They were trying to swing mindset towards software as a service and the web as a platform long before we had the terms that we use today to describe these technologies and ideas. Salesforce has grown to become much more than just a CRM application and is now a platform for business collaboration and communication on the web – allowing developers to build applications on their platform and giving their 399,000-strong customer base access to these applications.

The best indication of the growth of Salesforce as a platform has been that now over 40% of requests to Salesforce web servers are SOAP requests to their API. AppExchange is the application platform at Salesforce and today its library of applications has over 160 applications listed within it, all of which are available to Salesforce customers. At eTech Salesforce plan to announce the launch of their new developer community – the AppExchange Developer Network, which provides developers with the community, tools and resources to let them build applications for AppExchange. Salesforce will also be announcing the availability of toolkits for both PHP (supporting the native SOAP libraries in PHP5 – developed in collaboration with Zend) and something that is very exciting, a RubyOnRails toolkit called ActiveSalesforce.

Salesforce refers to what we know as Web 2.0 in the consumer space as ‘The Business Web’ in the business space. The technologies and ideas behind Web 2.0 such as Ajax, SOAP, Software as a service etc. all started out in the business space and their breakout into the consumer space resulted in the Web 2.0 we know today. While businesses and products such as the early Salesforce were the instigators and drivers popularizing the technology the growth of the consumer Web 2.0 resulted in the business space being forgotten. The purpose of the AppExchange Developer Network is to make it much easier for developers of mashups and other applications to apply their skills in the business space and to have their solutions showcased to the large user base that Salesforce has.

I have previously developed applications as well as client libraries that integrated with Salesforce, back with the first release of their API in 2002, and was amazed at how far both the technology and the community had developed since then. Today as a developer you can go to the developer network to signup for a free developer edition account, download all the development tools you will need and learn everything there is to know about building apps for Salesforce using the plethora of resources and the community they have on hand. The methodology behind AppExchange for a developer is:

* Imagine – think of an application or mashup that could be built to server business customers (such as a expense reports application)
* Create – using the toolkits available (Ajax, PHP, RubyOnRails, Java, Perl, etc.) and the resources (sample code, online presentations, podcasts, the forum etc.) create your application using your free developer edition account.
* Share – Submit the application you have created to AppExchange and have it available and a click away from 399,000 Salesforce customers,
* Succeed – most importantly, you have a business opportunity with the applications you build. Here you can work together with Salesforce in promoting your solution and succeeding.

WASHINGTON (CNN) — David who? was the initial reaction of Americans to a little-known judge from New Hampshire named in 1990 to sit on the nation’s highest court. Even the nominee didn’t know what to think when President George H.W. Bush called him with the news, telling supporters, “I was in a state of virtual shock.”

Conservatives say Supreme Court Justice David Souter, nominated by a Republican, was a dissapointment.

Conservatives say Supreme Court Justice David Souter, nominated by a Republican, was a dissapointment.

Now, more than 18 years later, Souter plans to retire after the current term recesses in June, a source close to Souter told CNN.

David Hackett Souter had only been on a federal appeals court bench for a few months when he was tapped to replace liberal lion William Brennan, a choice many Republicans hoped would move the high court rightward and reshape American law.

“I think that is good news for all of us who are committed to the Constitution of the United States,” said Bush. “He’ll be a superb justice for the Supreme Court.”

In reality, Souter was in many ways a typical, old-fashioned Yankee Republican — a moderate with an independent, even quirky streak. Whether he became more liberal in his views after joining the Supreme Court, as many conservatives believe, may depend on your politics.

“Justice Souter will never escape the label of having been an enormous disappointment, a traitor to the right,” said Thomas Goldstein, a Washington appellate attorney and founder of Scotusblog.com. “It instead created the opportunity to entrench a series of more liberal rulings. So he became the right’s greatest failure and we will forever hear the mantra ‘No More Souters’ from conservatives.”

Colleagues dismiss suggestions that liberal colleagues on the bench helped move Souter to the left.

“I find that incredibly unbelievable,” said Rebecca Tushnet, a former Souter law clerk and professor at Georgetown Law Center. “He was faced with different issues on the Supreme Court than he was as a state official. A Supreme Court justice requires you to make different decisions, ones that aren’t always consistent with your politics. And remember the Republican Party of Nixon is a different party than the one we have today, and we have a number of judges who came out of that earlier Republican Party who may not be in line with the priorities of people in power in Republican circles today.”

The stealth candidate

Souter had a long career in public service. He was New Hampshire’s attorney general and a trial judge who later sat on the state’s supreme court.

Senate confirmation hearings to the high court were a breeze, because his federal experience was brief and his public stance on hot-button issues like abortion remained fuzzy.

“I have not got any agenda on what should be done with Roe v. Wade if that case were brought before me,” he told senators. “I will listen to both sides of that case. I have not made up my mind.”

That didn’t stop women’s rights groups from sounding the alarm. At rallies during his confirmation, abortion rights activists held up signs opposing Souter and chanted, “This is nobody’s body but mine.”

Similar concern came from movement conservatives. “At the time, he was called the ‘stealth candidate,’ ” said Douglas Kmiec, a law professor at Pepperdine University who worked on high court nominations in the Reagan and Bush administrations. “So it was tabula rasa when he showed up at the bench and it was a surprise thereafter.”

One of the first “surprises” came in 1992 when the Supreme Court reaffirmed the fundamental right to abortion in “Planned Parenthood v. Casey.” Souter was part of a three-justice coalition that ultimately decided the case. In doing so, the “no undue burden” legal test was established when states were considering limiting a woman’s access to abortion.

“What was clear to me was that he hadn’t decided that case before he heard it” at oral arguments, recalled Peter Rubin, one of Souter’s law clerks that term. “The law for him, unlike many of his conservative colleagues, was not an abstract set of rules totally divorced from its effect in the real world. It wasn’t just an intellectual puzzle for him.”

One puzzle for Souter was technology. He famously told Congress he would allow cameras in his courtroom only “over my dead body.”

Sweden (pronounced en-us-Sweden.ogg /ˈswiːdən/ ), officially the Kingdom of Sweden (Swedish: Sv-Konungariket_Sverige.ogg Konungariket Sverige ), is a Nordic country on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe. Sweden has land borders with Norway to the west and Finland to the northeast, and it is connected to Denmark by the Öresund Bridge in the south.

At 450,000 km2 (173,746 sq mi), Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union in terms of area, and it has a total population of over 9.2 million. Sweden has a low population density of 20 people per km² (52 per square mile), but with a considerably higher density in the southern half of the country. About 85% of the population live in urban areas, and it is expected that these numbers will gradually rise as a part of the ongoing urbanisation. [6] Sweden’s capital is Stockholm, which is also the largest city in the country (population of 1.3 million in the urban area and with 2 million in the metropolitan area). The second and third largest cities are Gothenburg and Malmö.

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government and a highly developed economy. It ranks first in the world in The Economist‘s Democracy Index and 7th in the United Nation‘s Human Development Index. Sweden has been a member of the European Union since 1 January 1995 and is a member of the OECD.

Sweden emerged as an independent and unified country during the Middle Ages. In the 17th century the country expanded its territories to form the Swedish empire. Most of the conquered territories outside the Scandinavian Peninsula were lost during the 18th and 19th centuries. The eastern half of Sweden, present-day Finland, was lost to Russia in 1809. The last war in which Sweden was directly involved was in 1814, when Sweden by military means forced Norway into a personal union with Sweden, a union which lasted until 1905. Since then, Sweden has been at peace, adopting a non-aligned foreign policy in peacetime and neutrality in wartime.[7]

WASHINGTON (CNN) — David who? was the initial reaction of Americans to a little-known judge from New Hampshire named in 1990 to sit on the nation’s highest court. Even the nominee didn’t know what to think when President George H.W. Bush called him with the news, telling supporters, “I was in a state of virtual shock.”

Conservatives say Supreme Court Justice David Souter, nominated by a Republican, was a dissapointment.

Now, more than 18 years later, Souter plans to retire after the current term recesses in June, a source close to Souter told CNN.

David Hackett Souter had only been on a federal appeals court bench for a few months when he was tapped to replace liberal lion William Brennan, a choice many Republicans hoped would move the high court rightward and reshape American law.

“I think that is good news for all of us who are committed to the Constitution of the United States,” said Bush. “He’ll be a superb justice for the Supreme Court.”

In reality, Souter was in many ways a typical, old-fashioned Yankee Republican — a moderate with an independent, even quirky streak. Whether he became more liberal in his views after joining the Supreme Court, as many conservatives believe, may depend on your politics.

“Justice Souter will never escape the label of having been an enormous disappointment, a traitor to the right,” said Thomas Goldstein, a Washington appellate attorney and founder of Scotusblog.com. “It instead created the opportunity to entrench a series of more liberal rulings. So he became the right’s greatest failure and we will forever hear the mantra ‘No More Souters’ from conservatives.”

[6] Sweden’s capital is Stockholm, which is also the largest city in the country (population of 1.3 million in the urban area and with 2 million in the metropolitan area). The second and third largest cities are Gothenburg and Malmö.

Sweden is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government and a highly developed economy. It ranks first in the world in The Economist’s Democracy Index and 7th in the United Nation’s Human Development Index. Sweden has been a member of the European Union since 1 January 1995 and is a member of the OECD.

Sweden emerged as an independent and unified country during the Middle Ages. In the 17th century the country expanded its territories to form the Swedish empire. Most of the conquered territories outside the Scandinavian Peninsula were lost during the 18th and 19th centuries. The eastern half of Sweden, present-day Finland, was lost to Russia in 1809. The last war in which Sweden was directly involved was in 1814, when Sweden by military means forced Norway into a personal union with Sweden, a union which lasted until 1905. Since then, Sweden has been at peace, adopting a non-aligned foreign policy in peacetime and neutrality in wartime.[7]
