What is the best way to write two applications, one on PC, one on Palm, who can communicate and synchronize information (for example lotus notes infos)?

Both can do TCP/IP, so the pc shouldn''t know that it is talking to a palm (and visa versa)

I''m not sure if I understand your question precisely, but here are two answers to either of two questions you might be asking

One, if you mean you want to applications running simultaneously on the Palm and the desktop exchanging information in real time (such as 2 game clients), your best bet is either standard RS232 or TCP/IP comms as anon posted.

Two, if you mean you want to have a desktop application which access a database of information that can be "updated" by an application running on the Palm, then you are better off using the built in "conduit" system provided by the PalmOS and the HotSync manager. You can develope your own conduits using the CDK provided by Palm.
