Connecting Domino to the Enterprise Using Java

An IBM Redbooks publication


Organizations are making Java, Domino, and enterprise applications the foundations for their e-business strategies. Java is the Internet object-oriented programming language. Domino combines the open networking environment of the Internet standards and protocols with the powerful application facilities of Notes. Enterprise applications have proven their reliability in the processing of business transactions by supporting high-transaction volumes and secure, large, structured databases. Therefore e-business applications are Domino applications connected to enterprise services and developed in Java.

This IBM Redbooks publication explains how to use Java to create Domino applications integrated with enterprise resources. It introduces the new CORBA support offered with Domino R5. It shows how to create applets, agents, and servlets that access DB2, CICS, and MQSeries resources. It covers the connection using:
The IBM connectors such as the DB2 JDBC driver, the CICS Transaction Gateway, and the MQSeries Client for Java
The Java libraries that support the new Lotus connectors to DB2, CICS, and MQSeries
This book also explains the use of Domino with WebSphere application server. It shows how to integrate an Enterprise JavaBean managed by WebSphere in a Domino application.

A full set of working samples illustrates the different types of Java applications and their connection to the enterprise resources.
This book will help managers and system architects to understand the Java support of Domino as well as its connection to the enterprise. It will help the developers to create a Domino application in Java that is integrated with enterprise resources.
