eBay to host developer conference

The online auction powerhouse to host third-party developers and show off Apollo-based desktop application.

eBay next week will host a developer conference in Boston where the ecommerce heavyweight is expected to outline its Web services strategy.

The company is also expected to release a beta of the San Dimas project, a desktop version of the eBay application written using Adobe's Apollo platform. In true eBay style, the application was posted on eBay for others to bid on.

In a survey published this week, eBay got the highest marks among developers who write applications on top of Web site platforms using published application programming interfaces (APIs). Other Web companies in the survey included Amazon, Microsoft's MSN, Yahoo, Google, and Paypal.
