KDE Kontact: An Application Integration Framework

David Faure, Ingo Klöcker, Tobias König, Daniel Molkentin, Zack Rusin, Don Sanders, and Cornelius Schumacher, KDE Project


Kontact is the new integrated KDE personal information management application. Well, it seems new, but in fact only the shiny surface is new. Under the hood well-known time-honored KDE applications like KMail, KOrganizer, KAddressBook, KNotes and KNode do their work. This paper describes how KDE component technologies like KParts, DCOP or XMLGUI enable embedding of applications to create something which is more than the sum of the parts.
