CiviCRM features: Develop a generic CMS integration web service API for CiviCRM and have Joomla! use it

One line summary

Develop a new web service API (or some other creative, cross-platform solution) to serve as a CMS-agnostic integration API and move Joomla! over to it.


[CiviCRM :] is a powerful constituent relationship management system designed for the not for profit/nongovernmental organizations. It currently integrates with Joomla! 1.0.x and 1.5 in legacy mode, and the 2.1 version will be native to Joomla! 1.5.

Currently CiviCRM integrates with Drupal and Joomla! only. But ideally CiviCRM would be able to integrate with any CMS, even those not written in PHP (WebGUI in Perl or Plone in Python).

Skills needed

Excellent PHP and MySQL skills. Experience working with web services (for example, an understanding of the difference between XML-RPC and REST) Strong ability to work with people from different teams.


Work Product


All code must be created using the [GNU General Public License version]

Documentation written for this task must be made available under the Joomla! Electronic Documentation License.
