Although Java view can render most of notes views, it is not official to support all kind of notes views in Notes8.0.
If you want to create a xml file, you'd better use the composite application editor.
First make sure you select to install "Composite Application Editor" when installing Notes8.0.
Then in Notes8.0, click File->Application->New....
Input an application title, select "Blank Composite Application" template.
Open the application, select menu Actions->Edit Application.
Drag 2 components into the blank page: Notes Mail Navigator, Notes Mail View.
Then modify the component's properties to point to your database:
Select the component in the left pane, right click on it, select "Edit Component Properties", then click "Advanced" button. In the "Advanced Component Properties" dialog, list all properties of the component. Change the property com.ibm.rcp.csiviews.viewpart.dburl to the link to your database(a easy way to get your database's link is to copy your db as a db link and then paste it to your sametime chat window).
Open the new application with Designer, in the "Composite Applications->Applications" folder, select "Composite Application.xml" and export it.
To use the file you exported in your template, you need to do some modificaitions in the xml file:
1.Modify the title of your views
2.Change the dburl to "Notes:///0000000000000000/".
You can import the modified xml file to your template file to folder "Composite Applications->Applications".
Change your frameset's property "Composite application", select its "App Name" to "Composite Application.xml".
