This section contains the example business case for implementing a Notes® view container.
A generic component is needed that can be used to extract data from selected Notes documents from within a Notes view. The component will allow assemblers in the Composite Application Editor to define properties and associate those properties with fields and formulas on the document. The expectation is to use formula language as the extraction mechanism for data on the document – this means a basic field name can be used, but advanced formulas can also be used for more complex extraction. The properties will then be exposed as output properties and “set” actions on the component. Lastly, the formula language can define the landmark identifier. This will give the new container the ability to have different actions based on the landmark, such as form value or some other document identifier.
