Western National Insurance Group
Have had a fondness for Notes since R4.5; started developing at R5.
Notes has provided me a great environment to learn about technology and connected me to a great community.
We use Notes for mail and applications
Environment: R7.0.2 on iSeries and Win32
Biggest Notes application is ourAgency Management System (ARM)
Used as front-end for tracking agencies and agents.
Is interfaced to our policy management system and web portal throughDECS, ODBC (LS:DO & LSX:LC)
New policy and claims administration system and web portal.
Opportunity to now use web services to interface systems.
Helps us in our hybrid environment.
Standardized way to connect systems using http and XML
ND8 will have service provider and service requestor capabilities
Available as a service provider starting in R7; can use LotusScript
No official support as a service provider or as a service requestor in R6
Gives you access to classes that can connect to network resources and work with XML
With the right tools (Eclipse) working with Java is not extremely difficult
If you know LotusScript, all the back end objects are the same!
