Use the Domino Data Access builder to connect to and access information stored on a Lotus Domino server.
You can access Domino data and display Domino views within your application. Use this builder when you want to get access to a data store, or create view and form pages based on data from a specific back end system.
In most common applications of this builder, these are the inputs you will need:
Key objects this builder creates
When used to make a simple connection to a Domino data source, this builder creates the following key objects.
- Data service
- Another object
A complete sample shows you how to use WebSphere® Portlet Factory to create a service that uses data from Lotus Domino. http://www.lotus.com/ldd/pfwiki.nsf/dx/ibm-creating-a-domino-service
In addition to displaying a Domino view, this builder has the following capabilities:
- Allows you to specify a single view category to display.
- Supports full text search against the view and returns the result set in the display format of the selected view. (This defaults to a lower-performance search if the database is not full-text indexed.)
- Allows you to access values from a Domino document by means of a helper method.
To connect to the Domino server, you must provide a valid Domino server host name and a valid Domino Web user name and password. With these parameters, the builder can retrieve a list of all the databases on the server. From this list, you select a database and retrieve a list of all the available views. You can choose a Domino view to display in the application.
If you do not have access to browse the list of databases on the server, you can still enter in the Database Name
input the name of a database to which you have access.
