    Classroom recommended

    As a Principal Certified Notes Instructor, I often use and more often recommend this title to my students. It's one of the few comprehensive references on the scripting classes available, and the fact that it offers real world examples of how to use them is an added bonus.

    Just what I've been looking for!

    After wading through Notes online help and getting very frustrated with the lack of a coherent object model representation, this book is just what I've been looking for. Don't expect any long chapters on how to do something; this book is a concise reference on each class in Notes with properties, methods, events and brief examples without the rhetoric. This is the perfect companion tool for programming in Lotus Script. Each class is broken down into: Class name and version, Class Description, A jump table to aid in quickly locating info for that class, Syntax, Parameters, Properties, Methods, Events, Remarks, Examples. Excellent reference guide.

    A latecomer to LotusScript, learning the classes is what helped

    This book is a great Reference for the LotusScript and Java Classes. It covers both versions 5.x & 4.5+. As a very late comer to using LotusScript, I used this book again and again to finally understand what I was doing (modifying code samples only goes so far). Mind you - this book is not something you read like you would a 'teach me' book. Instead, I used this book to study and understand the classes - which is the key to understanding any OO environment (e.g. Delphi). <P> This book covers the classes in a very straightforward reference fashion. You can find a class simply by scanning the top of pages while flipping through (alphabetized) and the method or property you want to know about by looking at the outer margins. <p> On the first page of each class a very clear layout of the version of Notes a class will work with, where the class sit's in it's hierarchical relation to other classes, and a list of methods, properties, remarks and example with page number references. <p> There are useful code samples for each class demonstrating how to use various methods of the class. Some methods within a class also have code samples. <p> I know most of the information is contained in Lotus' online help - which I also use extensively - however, this layout in print form in many ways is superior to the online access. I can skim and find another method in another class easily that will accomplish what I really want to do. I get far better sample code to understand what the class/method/property is about (or use). Plus the design layout of the pages simply makes information jump off the page. I am buying a personal copy so I can return the book to our tech library.
