Using the Domino JSP Custom Tags: An Approach to Portalizing Domino Applications

An IBM Redpaper publication

Abstract

This Redpaper discusses the Domino JSP custom tag libraries and gives a broad understanding of how to build and integrate portlet applications leveraging the Domino JSP custom tags.

It provides an overview of the key technologies, including J2EE, WebSphere Portal and Lotus Domino. It then provides an in-depth look at using the Domino JSP custom tags as an alternative to using either general-purpose portlets or the Java API for Lotus Collaborative Components for integrating Lotus Domino applications into the WebSphere Portal framework.

The Redpaper covers the following topics:
- It provides an outline of options for integrating Lotus Domino applications into WebSphere Portal,
-it discusses the basics of the underlying J2EE technologies,
- it provides a brief introduction to the portlet concepts, and finally,
- it provides a description of the Domino JSP custom tag libraries.

This description includes a general overview of the Domino JSP custom tag libraries and gives a brief introduction to the various tag groups and their functionality. It also addresses some of the limitations that restrict the Domino JSP custom tags. Finally, it addresses advanced development concepts such as session management or sharing and object pooling in the context of the Domino JSP tags.
