Lotus and the IBM Redbooks authoring team have partnered together to populate this wiki with best practices from IBM, partners, and customers. This combines the quality and reputation of Redbooks publications with the dynamic and collaborative wikis that Lotus has published. Wikis are a relatively new Web browser-based technology that allows people to easily publish new and updated information as well as add comments, which results in technical information that is more accurate and current.

This is a community wiki. You are welcome to contribute to the existing pages or add new pages. Everyone is welcome to share their experiences and knowledge with the rest of the community. Because this is a relatively new type of deliverable, we welcome you to rate this deliverable and provide us with your feedback.


This community wiki focuses on best practices for building Web applications for Domino 8. Here you will find key recommendations for updating existing Domino Web applications, best practices for refining Domino application look and feel for the Web, and common tips and techniques.
