Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
With Release 5, Lotus Notes has been completely redesigned to integrate the full power of the Internet. Notes' components have been cleanly divided into a browser-oriented client; the Domino Server; and a sophisticated app design tool, Domino Designer. You can now write your application once and run it on both Notes clients and the Web. All in all, it's a major upgrade. And whether you're upgrading, deploying it for the first time, or simply working with it as an end-user, Mastering Lotus Notes R5 can help you get the most out of it.

You'll start with a complete guide to using the revamped Notes 5 client to manage contacts, schedules, to-do lists, personal journals, email, and assorted other PIM-type tasks. Next, Scot Haberman and Andrew Falciani introduce you to Notes databases and their key elements — user interface; logic (forms, views, Agents, and so forth); and security settings.

There's a full chapter on Notes' excellent capabilities as a mobile client, and the database replication features that support those capabilities. You'll review your options for integrating Notes with other applications, via OLE, Notes import/export, attachments, Notes SQL and Notes Mail migration tools.

Then, Haberman and Falciani — both leading Notes solutions developers at EDS — introduce you to Domino Designer, Notes' key application development tool. You'll walk through the development environment, create your first database; build forms and formulas; even learn how to automate process with Notes Agents. There's also a brief overview of scripting Notes and DominowithLotusScript. (Notes is now programmable with Java and JavaScript as well. That's beyond the scope of this book, but Haberman and Falciani do point out how the Java and JavaScript classes can be accessed and used.)

Of course, if you really want to learn Notes development, nothing's better than having sample databases to root around — and the accompanying CD-ROM obligingly provides several. —Bill Canarda
