This example assumes that you are familiar with creating new Notes databases in the IBM Lotus Notes client. It also assumes that you are comfortable using prior versions of IBM Lotus Domino Designer to modify Notes views, create simple Notes forms, and use the Programmers pane to input Notes formulas and LotusScript code.
In addition to satisfying the system prerequisites for a Lotus Notes install, found in the release notes, be sure that you or your administrator have installed the following:
- IBM Lotus Notes (Standard)
- IBM Lotus Domino Designer
As a prerequisite activity, you may also wish to read through the composite applications documentation to gain a sense of supported functionality and application intent.
You can find reference information about the composite applications tools and their functionality in the composite applications, refer to other sections of this Domino Designer documentation. For reference information about the latest release of Notes and IBM Lotus Domino, see the release notes and the documentation supplied with Lotus Notes.
The term "Lotus Notes (Standard)" refers to the Eclipse-based edition of Lotus Notes introduced in version 8.0. The term will be shortened to Lotus Notes throughout this example.
