In today's fast-paced knowledge management environment, a great deal of importance is placed on providing professional workers with information that is tailored to their job responsibilities. This IBM Redbooks publication gives a step-by-step description of how to build a portal application using Lotus Domino. While our sample was built in an OS/390 environment using UNIX System Services, the concepts and code samples apply equally well to any platform that supports a Domino server.
The audience for this book includes Domino developers, architects, and technical support engineers on all platforms, as well as consultants and marketing support professionals. A knowledge of Domino, programming, and operating systems is assumed.
