Thus, it was a great relief to come back from Lotusphere and read over my abstracts for the two sessions and find that both are interesting topics about which I can speak with some confidence. (I usually wait until after Lotusphere to create sessions for EntwicklerCamp, because you never know what you might learn at Lotusphere that will enhance or change the sessions) Here are the two topics I will present. with a small bit of commentary on each. I encourage you to check out this wonderful development conference if you will be anywhere near Gelsenkirchen, Germany the first week of March. Even if you don't want to see my sessions, come to see Maureen Leland, Andrew Pollack, Gerald Peters, Ulrich Krause, Bruce Lill and many more. There are also Hands-On sessions which are always very popular, and worth the price of the whole conference.

I don't see the "updated" LSX download. Any idea when it will be available for download?

I heard that it was announced at Lotusphere as Feb 1, but later amended to Feb. 15. I can only hope it is available, as it would be nice to do the presentation using the new release, although it certainly isn't necessary. Supposedly, the guy responsible has a blog, but I haven't dug it up yet to see if there is a revised date.

Using an agent to deliver JSON or XML has been a fun way to do joins pre-x-pages. One other time I used a Java agent named something.php to interface with a service that was expecting me to have something.php - realizing what it really wanted was the result, not a particular source of said result. Worked just fine.
At the API level, creating custome declarations is sometimes possible, even contrary to available API documentation. I've had to do this a couple of times working with windows http objects - thinking outside the box to get around barriers is a great tactic to providing the needed solution.
It should be a fun topic!
