ASP & Lotus Notes
I know nothing about Lotus Notes. Right now my company has a few pages for our site created using .nsf ... notes/domino database.. see I have no idea. Anyway, I'd like to know what is can be compared to..? Has anyone used it?
I'd like access a notes database from an ASP page and test it, if anyone could help me that would be great.
Also: If anyone would like to list reasons why Lotus Notes for creating websites sucks, please feel free.
But I'd rather stick with something I know inside-out, asp!
That was just my 2 cents...
You said Notes Wizards are easy to use for people that aren't web gurus? So is Notes Wizards kind of like FrontPage or something...? I just don't know why we're using it at work. I was hired for ASP & SQL, it's strange.
Can't you use asp to get domino databases like this:
Set vSession = CreateObject("Lotus.NotesSession")
Set vDB = vSession.GetDatabase("", "names.nsf")
here's one way (linked server) http://www.databasejournal.com/featu...le.php/3462011
but I usually recommend staying away from linked servers. DTS is usually a better option. Install the NotesSQL ODBC driver on the MSSQL server, and set up a DTS package to import the data.
Additionally, you could install the ODBC driver on your web server and query the Domino database directly.
