The following series of example tasks describes how to create a local composite application using procedures that make use of new features in IBM Lotus Notes and IBM Lotus Domino Designer.
This example provides an end-to-end scenario for creating and running a simple composite application using Notes applications as components.
When this example is completed, you will have a composite application with inter-component communication. Whenever you select a row in the upper component, the lower component will display the documents that have an identical category value in its embedded view.
The upper component is a view in a Notes discussion database. In order for it to participate as a component in causal relationships with other components in the composite application, you must enhance it so that it publishes a value from the currently selected document.
The lower component is a Notes form that contains an embedded view. The lower component has a pre-defined behavior where it reacts to the published value to list, in the embedded view and documents which have a matching value. This behavior demonstrates the inter-component communication with the upper component.
