To access a Domino® database through the Domino Data Access builder, ensure that certain requirements are met.
To access a Domino database through the builder, the following requirements must be met:
- The connecting user must have Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (IIOP) access to the Domino server.
- The connecting user must have ACL access permissions to the target database.
- The Domino server must be configured to allow HTTP browsing of databases so that the builder can populate various select lists.
The builder uses Java™ Internet Inter-Orb Protocol (IIOP) to access the Domino server. There are several steps required to enable Java IIOP access to the Domino server. For information about enabling IIOP, see the Domino Designer documentation, under Java/CORBA Classes, Java Classes Coding Guidelines, Running a Java Program.
To support the ability of this builder to browse a Domino database, establish the following Domino server setting: in the Current Server Document in Domino, under Internet Protocols, HTTP, be sure that the choice for Allow HTTP clients to browse databases
setting is yes
If you are running Domino R6 or later, running the Domino Web Server is not required. Instead, the IOR is retrieved directly from the Domino DIIOP port. This is configured in the properties file specified in the Properties File
builder input, or in the Host Server
builder input in the Connections Override section. Although the Domino Web Server is not required in R6, you must still set Allow HTTP clients to browse databases
in the Domino Server document.
A test JSP is provided to verify connectivity to the Domino server. Look in your project WebContent/factory/util
folder for the file, domino_test.jsp
. To test connectivity, publish or export your project WAR file and point your browser to the server with /factory/util/domino_test.jsp
appended to the project path name.
