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...
The best way to predict the future, is to invent it!
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.
