Redbook Abstract

Lotus Domino Release 5.0: A Developer's Handbook

This document describes how to develop applications using Lotus Domino
Release 5.0.
The earlier chapters in the book introduce some of the basic design elements
of a Domino database such as the database itself, forms, views, folders, and
navigators. Those readers that are familiar with developing applications
using earlier releases of Lotus Domino may want to move straight to the
chapters that introduce the new features in Domino 5.0, such as framesets,
pages, outlines, resources and headlines.
The book then describes how to use the programming languages available in
Domino Designer; the formula language, LotusScript, JavaScript, Java, IIOP
and CORBA, C++ API and the LSX toolkit. Some good practical advice on
Domino development do's and don'ts are then outlined before discussing
the Domino Enterprise Connector Services (DECS) which are used to access data from
external data sources, along with chapters describing how to use NotesSQL,
ODBC, and the LotusScript Data Object (LSDO).
The book then explains how to create multilingual international applications
for Domino and the Web using the Global Workbench tool.
Finally, the topic of creating workflow applications with the Approval Cycle
template is covered with an in-depth look at the LotusScript in the
ApprovalLogic subform.
This redbook was written for Domino technical specialists and
programmers, customers, IBM Business Partners, and the IBM and Lotus
community who need a good technical understanding of how to develop
applications using Lotus Domino R5.0.
